MIDI to DMX Music Meets Lighting
Turn Your MIDI Controllers into Lighting Instruments
Controlling your DMX lighting fixtures with MIDI controllers is really easy to setup in the Lightjams world. Nowadays, MIDI controllers are plug and play when connected to a computer and since Lightjams is dedicated to DMX lighting, syncing MIDI and lighting becomes really straightforward.
The amazing drummer Razor Tongue (Larry Hundertmark) from the band Plague Of Locust made this demo video showing how he uses his MIDI drums (Roland SPD-SX) and Lightjams to trigger lighting effects in realtime. As you'll see, he's fast. I mean really fast. Still, the lights are synced very precisely.
Lighting Designer, Nick Foligno from Union Garage Audio designed and ran this light show live to the music of Brooklyn band, The Vandelles. He used a MIDI controller (Akai APC40) to activate cues and designated 'hot' keys for special effects like strobes, floods and fog. Everything is controlled via Lightjams.
Want to play lights with your MIDI controllers? DARE TO LIGHT gives us a nice artistic performance featuring a keytar player controlling lighting through MIDI. The performers play with the lighting as they play music. Lightjams becomes a lighting instrument expanding the possibilities of live performances, freeing artists from exactly following pre-recorded cues.
DARE TO LIGHT also posted a tutorial video showing how to setup the whole thing.
Let's see what you can do with a bass, some DMX lights and real talent. This is live music to lights as good as it can be. Thanks to Quixotic Fusion for this great rehearsal video.
Here's another rehearsal video with a MIDI keyboard and again, some DMX lights and real talent. As you'll see, there's no delay between the time a key is pressed and the lights are activated.
The MIDI input is going really fast and can keep pace even with the most zealous musicians.
Live MIDI Monitor
The MIDI panel shows you all note or control messages at once, and this in real time. Selecting the right value is really made easy.
Full Use of MIDI Control and Note Messages
Unleash the power of MIDI control and note messages and really control any Lightjams parameters in a few mouse clicks. If remote control is your goal, you'll be served!
Unlimited Number of MIDI Controllers
Drum pad launcher, mixer, keyboard, pedal, name it. Lightjams supports it. Create a real jam by letting multiple people play with a different MIDI controller all at the same time!
