Control Your Lighting While You Perform!

With the DMXIS, you can take charge of a show's entire lighting system — with perfect sync of the audio and lighting, and all from a single computer. The DMXIS plug-in even lets you run your light show from within your favorite DAW or DJ software program as a VST or AU plug-in. ENTTEC designed DMXIS to be easy to use and understand, thanks to a hardware-style user interface — you can control any DMX-512 compatible fixture. When you're ready to take computer-control of your lighting, get creative with ENTTEC's DMXIS!

Take control of an unlimited number of DMX lighting fixtures

DMXIS is the easy way to create exciting live light shows with your Mac OSX- or Windows-based computer. Simply connect the DMXIS hardware interface to your computer, hook up your DMX-512 lighting rig, and you're ready to create stunning light shows using the intuitive DMXIS software controller! DMXIS was designed specifically for live performers who want to run an automated light show while performing onstage.

Runs as a plug-in inside your favorite DAW or DJ software

With DMXIS, you pre-program your entire light show in advance, letting you concentrate on your live performance. You can then manually step through the light show using a simple footswitch plugged into the DMXIS hardware interface. Or, if you use audio software such as Logic, Ableton Live, Cubase, or Mixmeister in your live show, you can use the DMXIS plug-in (VST or Audio Unit) to run your lights directly from your audio software! This is incredibly effective, as your light show automatically synchronizes to the performance, even if you change tempo live.

Includes a USB-DMX hardware converter

The DMXIS hardware interface is a professional standard USB-DMX converter, capable of transmitting a full universe (512 channels) of DMX-512 data at full 40Hz frame rate. An onboard microprocessor performs all the DMX frame buffering — in other words, the interface itself is responsible for generating a steady and reliable DMX data stream. This is far more reliable than inexpensive USB-DMX options which rely on your computer to generate the data. To protect your computer from unintentional electrical surges (for example, if someone were to foolishly plug a phantom-powered mic cable into your interface) the DMXIS interface has full 1500V data and power isolation.

Worth it's weight in wages.

I use Ableton Live with my band. This thing dissolves any reason to hire a lighting guy. It never misses a cue and never comes late! Flawless operation.

Light Show without a Light Man

I searched high and low for a “Foot” controlled DMX controller and was lucky enough to find this one. It took me a while the set up the songs and scenes but the work was worth it. I worked flawlessly at the first gig. I probably got carried away with the number of scenes per song but it was only one click of the foot switch to go from scene to scene. Enttec did their homework on this unit. I was very intuitive right out of the box and I only needed to look at the manual for a couple of settings. The Enttec website even has videos on setting up the unit you can check out. I would recommend a 2 button footswitch for controlling on stage. That way you can have one switch to change songs and the other for scenes within the song. If you don’t have a lighting tech to run your live shows buy this. It will look like you do!

Wow......no words!!

I have got to say this is the best product I have gotten in a long time. The person at EnTTec should win some huge award for coming up with this device and the software is a whole other treat. This is so easy to use I never even looked at the book. (plus if needed its right there at your finger tips in the software any time you feel the need). The foot switch is awesome. I run my lighting system from the stage and it is amazing no complex Midi BS just simple setup. Before I used an Obey40 to run my system and it was very hard to set up my yokes and scanners to look right. Now just a quick click and the twist of a knob and I can do anything I could ever imagine with any of my fixtures....AWESOMENESS TO THE MAX.....Crazy fun and crazy easy!! I can't see why anyone would want any other DMX software interface combo. I checked all the others and this one is tops and its cheap!! Just buy it...you will never look back! Best buy of the year hands down...enjoy

Why would anyone use a controller?

In one hour I was able to program 20+ different lights and multiple scenes. Half of the lights were rental lights and the rest my own. Even the lights that weren't in the library were a snap to program right from the manufacturer libraries. I don't know why anyone would use a manual controller unit, this thing and a laptop means instance control. The coolest thing was being able to control the moving lights with the mouse. Do yourself a favour and throw away your controller and get one of these.

Sweetwater Advice

The DMXIS does things no other lighting control can do. If you remove all other features and just look at this one feature: "Runs as a plug-in inside your favorite DAW or DJ software". The possibilities are endless. Imagine a full featured set with a custom lighting show pre-designed to your music, responding directly to what is being played, not just sound active, but fully functional and designed to be unique and reactive. Every serious band, DJ, performance artist, theater etc needs to have a customizable DMX controlled lighting setup. The ability to customize your entire lighting rig that is DMX from a computer system is absolutely huge. This combination of software & Hardware for Mac & PC is priced affordably and delivers an amazing professional result.
