I came across this link via maxobjects.com :

http://www.nullmedium.de/dev/dmxusbpro/index.html

I must admit that I never used DMX and that I hardly know what it is
so I don’t at all if it is what you’d need… Anyway, I seem to
remember that this topic came to the list, so you may be able to find
some info in the list archive.

Hope that helps, but not sure…

Julien.

Many people use the LAN-Box for controlling DMX. I worked with a very
early version, which worked adequately, and since then there have
been numerous improvements. One of the developers, Fokko, is on the
list. You can probably search the forum to find contact information
and their web site.

Good luck,
Peter

well :

Even more interesting than the lanbox maybe…

Up to you.

i used MIDI and serial version of Cinetix DMX converters. Both worked
very well and build quality is good. They have some really nice
features like 60 presets, crosfade between presets, versions with
build in simple analog/digital input/output, etc….

hello,
if you are looking for a dmx interface,
there just came one out, created by anyma

http://www.anyma.ch/research/udmx/

it is small, running smoth and faster then the lanbox,
(sorry to say this, but in our new project we need speed and the
limit of the lanbox lays
around 20 frames per second, and the top thing about the micro dmx is,
if you dont use all the channals, it is fast and lightcontrolling
will be diffrent in certain cases.

and of corse all for free if you know how to get around with
electronics.

I recently purchased a ‘home-made’ dmx interface from a small French company ( http://www.concept-fr.net/index.php ).

It runs on a parrellel portand with other software it works fine.

Is there anyway of testing it in max/msp?

Many Thanks,

SF

hello, can someone please explain the differences between dmxusb and dmxusbpro?
from what i gather:

dmxusb:
+ open source
+ cheaper
-
dmxpro:
+ support DRM, a.k.a faster(?) (currently not supported by the max object)
+ updatability of firmware

You can only use the pro version on a mac. Not sure about a PC.

btw: the pro version *is* supported by Olaf Matthes’ dmxusbrpo
object. It’s the non-pro version that has no connection (again…on a
mac at least).

neglect to mention im a windows user.
while paying to be pro is nice and all, is there an inherent flaw in
the open design?

yes, there’s a big flaw that makes it pretty useless. or at least
this was the case ~1 ago – haven’t tried it since.
it drains the computer’s cpu by flooding it with dmx data. where the
pro version only sends when something actually changed, the open
source version is polling all the time.

(it does work on osx – if you can get hold of olaf’s beta external
that is ;-)

I’m a windows user, but went with the pro version, simply for Olaf
Matthes’ object. It makes my lights just another max-thing, I love it.

By the way, are any of you using a dmx fader bank to control max? That
could be fun.
Andreas.
