Great for live use via midi

I picked up the ADJ DMX Operator 384 recently after a lot of research to fully DMX control two Chauvet Gigbar LT units at live shows. My main reason for choosing this over the Chauvet Obey 70 (which has similar specs) is the way in which it handles midi input. To control it from a midi foot controller, you need one that can send midi note information. I'm using a Behringer FCB-1010. I can use a midi note to select a bank (1-30) and then a scene (1-8). That adds more versatility than using the Chauvet which can just select single scenes from a midi note. The big difference was that I can turn Sound Active and Auto mode on and off with midi signals as well. Just send it an audio line from the mixer and, when you hit sound active, it will scroll through the currently selected bank in response to sound input. Turn sound active off and go back to selecting individual scenes. The upshot of all this is... after a lot of scene programming... I can run a synced light show for a live band with my feet while playing bass. No need to pay a lighting guy. This is truly the only controller I know of in this price range that gives you this much live midi control for the price. I looked at everything under $. Highly recommended.

Good product

Good product, everything works as it should. My only gripe is there is no documentation (that I've found after months of looking) that explains the more complex midi functions. Some info is provided but not nearly enough, I think people would be a lot more excited about this product if they could see the more complex functions and applications. If only ADJ would provide better videos and perhaps a list of compatible software to save people lots of trial and error. Your DAW can run your whole light show, pretty cool if you can figure it out.
