Our Amateur Theatre group, who perform in local village halls etc. are looking towards computerised DMX control. Currently we use a 48 channel (traditional) light controller. Obviously 48 channels is quite restrictive when using LED lighting, although being a dedicated piece of hardware, as opposed to a laptop, is reliable.
My question is whether to use V2 or V3. I have not found a comparative list of what is in V2 and V3 so why I am still wondering but erring towards V2 for the music synchronisation and larger number of controllers compatible with it.
My firm requirements for the system are:
2. Manual cue of "scenes" using keyboard
3. Ability to produce "chases"
4. Ability to play multiple scenes at the same time.
5. Variable fade up / down times
6. Easy to use
7. Single universe.
8. Large Amount of DMX channels available (at least 127)
Nice to have requirements are:
a. Ability to have external devices cue a scene. via hot key or midi etc. in parallel with other scenes.
b. Ability to sync to music.
c. Compatible with large number of DMX controller hardware boxes.
d. Multiple universes
I guess, the more capable the software, the more capability we might use.
