DMX?


    Dec 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
      i work with the lanbox-lcx
      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 ;)
