    A good way of controlling your DMX Universe(s)..

    Comments about American DJ MyDMX Lighting Control Software:

    Get a cable checker, and make sure your cables are good quality, otherwise this system will drive you NUTS replacing that one bad cable!

    If you want instant light scenes, this isn't for you. If you understand the value of hard work, are patient, and willing to learn the program, this can make your disorganized, sound-winking DMX show look like $1M.
    The 3D simulation works well, but reality is not as perfect as your simulation. I create all my scenes in 3D, then perfect them in rehearsal or pre-gig. (The "copy scene" feature saves HOURS.) You have to set everything just like the simulation to get the same results; angles, height. I recommend you create an alignment scene, mark points on your stage, and physically fine tune your placements. Not easy if you're in different locations. The good thing is, they're programs, and you can save setups and placements for each location. If you're lighting the same stage all the time, bully for you!

    There are brightness controls, but if you are working in a large environment, or using LED lighting (or both), candlepower may be a bit deceptive in the 3D simulation. Look at it live to be sure. Maybe I just haven't taken full advantage of that feature.

    A pre-Vista laptop will work well, and probably cost less that the MyDMX itself. Get 2! Get extra RAM memory, if possible. Like any dedicated computer system, cut unessential programs, backup often, and have a replacement laptop handy (you carry 2 guitars, right?).

    Assigning computer keyboard keys to scenes (awesome feature) is a must, IMHO. I've created 4 programs for our band's 4 sets, just to use the 40+ key shortcuts. Be aware, the F keys aren't programmable, and "\" causes some weird things to happen; I think they're called "undocumented features". I'm the keyboard player, keep the MyDMX computer on my left, and tap scene keys as the band performs. It works great, and we don't pay a light guy.

    A solid aluminum box. I wouldn't drive a car over it, but I've stood on it. I wouldn't hit it with a 7-iron (I hit a pull hook), but I have dropped it on a concrete floor (no problem).
    Since you can program & choose any setup, configure any stage, and can have as many presets as you can handle, I absolutely love this system for the price. Just don't lose that silver box!

    You will not regret buying MyDMX if your lights are DMX ready

    By Rick Hagen

    from Port Elgin, ON Canada

    Comments about American DJ MyDMX Lighting Control Software:

    Next step will be wireless DMX transmission to make uplighting banquet halls easier (reduce the long cable runs).
    I takes some blog reading and a bit of trial and error to get it all working correctly. Manufacture's website has helped me learn the product and program it work with other brands of lights (light fixture files can be downloaded to your software library). You have to take some time to learn the technology to make it work the way you want it too. Once you are up and running you'll want to buy all of your stuff with DMX (fog machines, rotating lights, black lights, etc). I've had 30 plus fixtures running like a broadway production while still mixing music tracks on the fly. Once you build your scenes you can take whatever lights suit the event. You don't have to use all of your fixtures every time as long as you assign all of your fixtures unique addresses. I also recommend you use the same address for duplicate lights (like a pair of Chauvet 4Bars or 4Plays). This unit makes it easy to build a really impressive light show (and you don't need another employee to just run lights). Don't scrimp on the cheapest DMX cables you can find. You'll end up with shorts and broken wires at the connectors that prevent the daisy chain of lights from working correctly. I bought various lengths/extra cables and continue to impress my customers (they absolutely love LED lighting). Once you get up and running you'll wonder why you didn't dump the manual method way sooner than you did.
    Compact solid box that works well once you have your software set up correclty.
    Haven't found anything better for the price.

    So Simple

    By Retro-ThBIW

    from Niagara Falls, NY

    Comments about American DJ MyDMX Lighting Control Software:

    Have been using manual controllers for my light shows for some time now! Just added some moving head fixtures so I decided to upgrade to this (the cheapest computer based system I could find). WOW, what a differance, I can't beleive I've waited this long to upgrade. The programing is simple (as simple as DMX can get). You can make changes to your shows on the fly, add, remove, change hold times have hot keys for any show! If I had know I would have bought this the first day it was released! Over all Great!!! Beware that it is not compatible with Windows 7 out of the box but, with a little google searching you can find the upgraded software someone else made to get you running!

    Simple to use but pretty powerful dmx controller

    By wayne rogers

    from Covington, LA

    Comments about American DJ MyDMX Lighting Control Software:

    We have been using this to control our lighting system at our church for 6 months, works great! We have Par cans, LED's and Moving heads and it controls them beautifully. The only problem that we had was that we had to terminate the DMX signal to stop some erratic behavior, but after the termination, it has functioned like a champ! Great peice of hardware, simple but powerful all in one software.
