Re: dmx library missing

Perhaps you are looking in the local "Library" folder? You need to navigate to the system "Library" folder, as follows:
  • Click on the Finder icon in the macOS Dock
  • Press Cmd-Shift-G (Go to the folder appears)
  • Type "/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS" and click Go

Re: Sending two separate DMXIS presets at once?

Pretty easy to do. On the hardware side, just ensure the DMX addresses of the house lights doesn't overlap with the drummer's lights (e.g. if house lights = channels 1-300, set the drummer's LED lights to start at channel 350) Then run the DMXIS output into a DMX splitter, and take one output to the...

Re: Wow, this is bad....

As the author of the product, I assure you DMXIS is very much designed for use by live bands not using click tracks, and is most definitely not limited to "cheesy flashing" :D Let's look at lighting a simple song: Intro (amber spot on the singer) Main (whole band lit) Solo (adds some slowly changing...

Re: DMXIS and MIDI?

I bought this as it was advertised as ideal for live bands - I’m quickly finding out that it is not the case... a 14 second fade to black is pathetic 😕. Thousands of bands and performers use DMXIS every week without issues like this. Clearly something is amiss. I wonder if you are trying to use DMX...

Re: Wow, this is bad....

It is most likely you are doing something wrong, but it's difficult to diagnose from the info you've given. Can you upload a short video to show the problem? It might be that you have accidentally adjusted the "Fade To Next" control to a non-zero value for one or more of your presets. If "Fade To Ne...

Re: Attempting to create chases

The Sound Tracker lets you channel levels from the audio. DMXIS cannot extract a tempo from the audio.

However, you can use tap tempo (from a footswitch connected to the DMXIS box, or via MIDI CC 110 from your controller). Alternatively, you can control DMXIS tempo using MIDI clock messages.

Re: DMXIS and Mixcraft

The DMXIS hardware has no MIDI capabilities - it is just a USB to DMX converter.

Mixcraft definitely does not need to see the DMXIS hardware as an external MIDI device. You just need to route your MIDI notes into the DMXIS VST plug-in.
