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.

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…

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 ;)
