Hello everybody.
I'm writing here because I'm studying a system to have the lighting of a theatre show controlled by MIDI messages from Pro Tools. I need to use just one computer and the same timeline for audio and light and possibly the same software. I'm thinking that MIDI control changes can be translated into a DMX signal and fade in and out lights or other equipment connected to my dimmers.
If I haven't been clear please write questions here .
Any idea or suggestion very appreciated
thanks

Come to think of it, I should wire my entire neighbourhood with these and have a block party, with me as the entertainment.
