Does The Job

I've been doing backing tracks with my bands for more than 5 years. We started with a few songs and an iPod, then upgraded to a Denon DN-F300. Now every song we do has a backing track. We always went out with a "light show" but we don't have a crew to run it so we plugged the lights into a board that ran chases, nothing was sync'd. I saw the ENTTEC Show Buddy software here and it looked perfect for the shows. I'm running it and the DMXIS box from a MacBook Pro, we use a Safire Pro 14 for the board feed. Show Buddy works perfectly for what I wanted to do. It's easy to program and set up and makes managing the set list super easy (I used to have to rename the songs so they would be in order on the Denon). Show Buddy is basically a VST host for the DMXIS software, instead of editing audio, you edit lighting cues. Show Buddy's macro library handled everything I needed to do but you can also create your own if you can hack Python. Adding custom colors to the macro library is a matter of adding a one line file to the colors directory with the string rgbvalue(R,G,B) in it. I recommend asking Dave Brown for the 1.5 beta if you purchase Show Buddy, it fixed a couple minor issues I had, he's a great guy and responds quickly. It took about 2-3 weeks to get a 50 song show programmed, working evenings. I've got 2 4BARs, 2 GigBAR IRCs, and 2 PinSpot Quad DMXs. It's still a bit basic but it looks great, all the cues are on the beat. If you're doing backing tracks and want to sync your light show, Show Buddy is probably the only game in town. It's so easy to use at showtime, even my drummer can run it. Good Stuff, I highly recommend Show Buddy for anyone working with backing tracks.

Okay for a beginner

This does a good job of giving you a MIDI output and using, or making the presets for the DMXis but the timing can't be made as granular as I would have liked. It doesn't have music down to the tick like Logic Pro. But if you don't have access to tools like that it is perfect.
