DMX Newbie

dmx newbie
hello, i would like to control 6 different lamps with dmx.
I have no previous knowledge.
What do I need from devices (minimum) so that I can control this with VL.

Hi @kyru ,

DMX is an exciting and complex world, but end of the day everithing is about adressing and channel levels regardless what kind of DMX compatible lamp park we are talking about. VSTLive can handle these levels, but for a smoother start, I would skip VSTLive for a second and learn about DMX itself first. Saying this as an artist who payed for light programming several times, sit together with specialist and finally showfiles are saved on big ligthning desks.

Hi fkalmus,

You were so helpful last month when I started using VST Live for the first time. Its up and running with tracks and sequenced videos for our live show…so thanks!
Next step in our live stage show is getting VST programmed to run lights through DMX. My bass player and I are brand new to this world and need guidance on how to properly set up VST Live and other DMX components to have lights programmed for every song. Help! and thanks again
