Hi to all,
I'm new to DMXControl 3 and never used former versions of the program. I'm new to light control any way...
I managed to set up a theater/music show in DMXControl to drive backlights, frontlight and venue light overall with total of around 22 fixtures in a single cuelist. Not a BIG deal, but to start with this is an interesting experience, for me.
The show does not need more than that any way. The cuelist counts now 54 cues and will be expanded to around 65-70 cues.
My problem is that I also have to manage the sound console ... and I have only 2 hands, like all of us.
I thought to connect my Behringer X32 (which supports midi in/out, cues and scenes, almost identical to what exists in DMXControl 3) and the 'GO'-button on the console via midi to DMXControl running through the cuelist.
I think I got it wright at the Behringer side (each cue can send a dedicated or identical midi command. But I still miss the connection cable between the mixer and my PC (ordered, not yet delivered) and at this point I cannot do any test. I the meantime I try to figger out how the setup in DMXControl 3 works, but I'm confused concerning that setup of midi at the DMXControl 3 side.
I don't understand how the incoming midi data will be translated to a command like 'GO'. Using IA? But I see no midi-references there.
In IA I can make it work for a keyboard, ie 'RETURN' or 'ENTER' activates the 'GO' on my cuelist and the 'BACK'-button activates the 'BACK' on the cuelist. That works fine. I also know how to activate and deactivate this behavior. Great stuff!!
But I don't see references for midi, unfortunately. I imagine it must be possible. I'm on a dead end...
Can somebody help me out, please? Making this to work properly would be a big thing and more relaxed working during the shows.
Thanks for any help.
