perfect, thanks Dave.

Slightly off topic, but if I use ShowBuddy Active with my DMXIS hardware, does that mean I no longer would use the DMXIS software?

thanks,
Yes, Show Buddy Active would be used instead of the DMXIS software.

Re: DMXIS to control a lighting console with midi controller

The midi controller turns out to be an opt 1216 monster dmx. There’s no “midi in” so I doubt I can control it that way like I thought. Luckily on further inspection, it’s all the same leds which would make using a DMXIS box work easily from the cable coming out of the light console. The OPT1216 doe...

Re: DMXIS to control a lighting console with midi controller

I have a club I play that has some nice led lights but no fixture list. They all are plugged into a small lighting console. I’m the drummer. Could I use DMXIS with a midi controller to control the light console from my kit? Would I need a laptop for sequences that I’d use with Ableton for extra con...

Re: DMXis with midi controller and NO computer

you can use a stand alone controller. I do exactly that with a Korg NanoPad2 and a 15ft usb cable. You cannot connect a MIDI controller directly to the DMXIS box, which is what I believe the OP is asking. You always need a computer to communicate with the DMXIS box. Ah yes, I see your right. So No,...

Re: Copied Presets and Shows Not recognised in WIN 8.1

try creating another show file and give it a unique name.

Then you can use windows search to see if you can find where the file is located.

they should be stored here: Vista & Windows 7/8/10: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\ENTTEC\DMXIS

Here are a couple of possibilities 1. File permissions on the copied folder are wrong and need to be changed so DMXIS can read and write to the folder 2. DMXIS is looking for files in a different location than you think it should be looking at To check if you've got the folder/show files in the corr...

You can control presets with midi just as easily as the fixtures as long as your not trying to do thousands of lighting changes.

You need to eliminate all the extraneous variables first. Connect a single fixture with a DMX cable directly to your DMXIS box.

You didn't say exactly how you've got stuff configured, but one thing that sometimes gets confusing is you either use the DMXIS plugin directly in reason, or you use the standalone, but not both. If you use the standalone, you setup reason to output to LoopBe and you have to configure DMXIS to use L...
