Just the lighting control you need

I had been using an iPad app that was OK, but didn’t allow for an easy global view, so I started using a console app that was also available for my laptop. The laptop software was super powerful but also difficult for me to grasp easily. Then someone mentioned that Blackout was available in Beta, but would be releasing soon. I gave it a shot and it just felt right. Even though it was in Beta, I could see that all the right pieces were there. When it went live there were a few hiccups, but by the second version release the main issues were ironed out and I felt like I had an everyday program that worked well with my existing hardware (An AKS+ Transmitter). The Facebook group is really helpful and the author of the software is very helpful and responsive. If you need to control 6 DMXable units or 30, brand new LEDs or regular Tungsten through dimmer packs, this software will give you the tools to make your set-up sing. (I did purchase an up to date iPad Pro, but it’s great for a lot of other software too:)

Great app!

This lightning control app beats any other mobile OS based lighting control app. Works very similarly to EOS, fixture selection and parameter adjustments are far more easy than other Apps. Has way better options for fixtures and effects. This app is the most solid option for tablet based lighting control.
