OVERVIEW

Entry-level DMX control.

The perfect solution for anyone who hasn't used DMX control before, or is on a limited budget. The myDMX Buddy stick hosts the hardware that is required to convert USB to DMX, and runs a limited version of MyDMX2.0 software. The difference is there's 256 DMX channels, no MIDI control and no visualizer. However these features can always be added on as needed. The dongle plugs directly into a 3-pin DMX input on your lighting fixture and connects with a computer via a USB connection.

      Comments about American DJ myDMX Buddy USB DMX Controller:

      Bought this as what seemed like an inexpensive way to control my expanding light rig. User manual was not very clear on what software to download. After getting the software installed and some test scenes programmed, the dongle would not communicate with the lights. Tech support is on the west coast so living in the Midwest made contacting them inconvenient. They sent me a second unit which worked for 60 seconds or so and then quit working. Tech support was difficult again and could not even tell me if the dongle was compatible with my computer. I sent it back and purchased an Enttec unit and Freestyler software. Enttec worked perfect right out of the gate.

        Comments about American DJ myDMX Buddy USB DMX Controller:

        I bought a Behringer Eurolight board that came DOA and thank goodness that it did, because I got the myDMXBuddy instead. After trying to get the Eurolight to talk to the lights for six hours, I felt beaten by DMX lighting. Then I replaced the Eurolight with myDMXbuddy and I was up and running in about ten minutes. The graphical user interface is great and extremely easy to understand. So easy, that I got my wife to program a unique light show for all 59 songs that we do. It's really a bonus that it's easy enough for her to program and run the lights for our band. There are no moving parts to go bad, so the product should last a long time. I'm running the program on Windows 7 with no problems. Just plug in the USB connector, and then start the myDMX2.0 program. You can download the program before you buy so that you can see what you're getting into. My only concern is someone spilling a beer on my laptop. I'm planning on putting Saran Wrap over my keyboard.
