ENTTEC has announced that DMXIS, the DMX lighting control software, has been updated to v1.6.3. This release adds remote control features, for greatly simplified manual control of shows:
- Tap Tempo: This much-requested feature lets you manually sync the speed of DMXIS oscillators & chases by tapping out the tempo on the footswitch, a MIDI controller, or a touch device (such as an iPad running TouchOSC).
- MIDI Clock: The DMXIS master tempo will automatically synchronise to any incoming MIDI clock signal. Use this to sync DMXIS chases to a compatible application, such as Traktor DJ.
- OSC remote control: DMXIS can now be remotely controlled from an OSC app, such as TouchOSC or Lemur running on an iOS or Android device. When combined with Tap Tempo, this delivers a powerful hands-on control surface for busking live shows. The OSC controller can auto-populate the DMXIS bank & preset names, and full two-way communication keeps the OSC controller and DMXIS settings in sync at all times.
The DMXIS 1.6.3 release and an TouchOSC layout can be immediately downloaded here.
