DMX?

December 27, 2008 | 2:06 am

Hi,

I am aware that this is a pretty general question but, I wanted to design a DMX controller in Max for general use. Ie, something that could be configured to different systems. I have some understanding of how the protocol works but not sure of the best way to generate this data in Max.

Any general pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

i am not sure what you mean by "design a DMX controller in Max for
general use" – guess it’s a little like building a MIDI general
controller – you need a midi interface for this, and i belive in the
case of DMX you have to have a dmx interface

I use the lanbox for this, and controllng DMX is really easy with
this – I am not at all a specialist of dmx, but so far controling
anything (I needed) was really simple, so simple that I never even
did a controller sub-patch nor anything – it usually is just a
question of putting 2 or 3 boxes together…

I use this and it works very well. It has its own object in Max and you just send it a list of values, very easy to use!

maybe check the lanbox from cds
http://www.lanbox.com

i work with the lanbox-lcx

http://www.lanbox.com/products/LCXDataSheet.html

its a bit more expensive than other dmx-usb hardware
but it gives you dmx-in and dmx-out on tcp/ip ,udp ,usb ,midi
and it can operate standalone
there are some maxobjects with it or use the lcedit software that comes with the box

i used it myself to make my own dmx controller in max which was used for an opera play .

yes, working with udmx is fun. it’s easy to use, stable and _small_.
also, michi is a nice guy who could use some more support ;)
