      I came across this link via maxobjects.com :
      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
      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.
      best

      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

      There is a place where you can find an object called dmx~

      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.
