Do you own DMX lighting fixtures that you aren’t currently getting the most out of? Do you want to take control of your rig, but don’t understand DMX programming or simply can’t find the time to spend programming a complicated lightshow? Well ADJ’s exciting new mydmx GO lighting control system could well be just the solution you are looking for!
mydmx GO throws out the old DMX control rule book and offers a revolutionary new approach that is extremely powerful and incredibly easy to use. It combines a uniquely intuitive app-based control surface with a compact interface that connects wirelessly to an iPad, Android or Amazon Fire tablet and provides a standard XLR output for connection to a lighting system.
Unlike any other hardware or software DMX control system on the market, the mydmx GO app requires absolutely no programming but can be used to create stunning synchronized lightshows across any combination of DMX-compatible lighting fixtures. It is supplied pre-programmed with a wide variety of easily customizable effects that can be used with any type of fixtures.
The app’s distinctive layout features two FX wheels – one for color chases and one for movement patterns – which each contain eight effect options. These can be selected independently, customized (by altering the color palette, speed, size, shift and fan) and combined to create a vast number of different unique effects which can then be stored for instant recall to one of 50 user-defined presets. In a matter of seconds, incredible lighting displays can be easily created that would require hours of programming using traditional control systems.
In addition to the main FX wheel controls, dedicated buttons are also included within the interface for GOBO, Iris, Zoom and Prism. This allows the software to be used to control even professional-caliber moving head fixtures with advanced feature-sets. There are also five ‘flash effect’ buttons that can be used to easily add impact when the music reaches a breakdown or climax. These are: WOW! (creates a build-up of strobing effects synchronised with the BPM), Blinder (directs all lights forward and switches them to white), Freeze (pauses the current movement / color effect), Smoke (triggers a DMX-compatible fog machine) and Blackout (instantly kills all your lights).
A simple-to-use color wheel interface makes selecting specific hues extremely easy when working with fixtures that offer LED color mixing and a dedicated Strobe button with speed control is also included. A Master Dimmer fader has also been integrated into the main control interface, while Sub Masters for each individual fixture can be easily accessed through a pop-up panel.
With an extensive fixture library of 15,000+ profiles, the mydmx GO can be used to control all types of DMX lighting from any manufacturer, including moving heads, mirror scanners and LED pars. It features an extremely straightforward setup interface that makes it very easy to configure the app to control your specific rig. The software will then tell you how to address each of your fixtures so that they receive the correct control instructions. The advanced app even allows the movement range of individual fixtures to be individually limited, which means that – for example – you can ensure that moving heads positioned on podiums at the front of a room only project forwards towards the dancefloor.
The mydmx GO hardware interface is extremely compact and offers both permanent and temporary mounting options. It features a variable-angle antennae, for reliable wireless connection to your Apple or Android tablet, as well as professional-caliber 5-pin XLR output sockets. It is also equipped with a 2-digit LED display and three corresponding selection push buttons that can be used to easily setup the connection between the app and your lighting fixtures.
Out of the box, the mydmx GO system can be used to control up to 256 DMX channels. However, the software can be upgraded to offer up to an additional 256 channels from store.dmxsoft.com. The hardware interface can also be used with ADJ’s myDMX 3.0 software (sold separately) and features two DMX outputs allowing for the use of up to 1,024 DMX channels: two full universes (the myDMX Go app only supports a single universe).
The mydmx GO system is ideal for use by mobile entertainers as well as for small nightclubs, bars and leisure venues where a simple and easy to use lighting control system is required. It’s incredibly intuitive interface makes it ideal if you have no prior experience of DMX lighting control, however its powerful suite of pre-programmed patterns mean that it will be also attractive even for experienced lighting designers who are looking for a quick and easy solution for creating an impressive high-energy synchronized lightshow.
