Our MIDI-triggered light show is programmed and controlled via Enttec DMXIS hard- and software. As mentioned in part 1, the DMXIS interface, which is converting MIDI to DMX commands, is permanently mounted to a rack tray inside our main rack and connected to our MacBook Pro, running Logic Pro X, via USB hub. Within our Logic session, the DMXIS software is hosted as an VST plugin.
We use five LED spots (Stairville Quad Par Profile 5x8W RGBW 45°) in 6 channel mode. With a 45 degree beam angle those spots create a wide and nice beam and surprisingly rich colours, even in the pastel range.
We use two Stairville LF-12 LED Flash 12 DMX as strobes and blinders in 3 channel mode. Those devices are really flexible and bright.
Except for two LED spots, we’ve mounted all lights on cast base mic stands for a beam angle at body height.
We are aware of the unauthorized misappropriation of the base mic stands, but managed to perform with this setup without admonition ‘til today.
