Howimfeeling ,

I wasn’t interested in DMX until…

This app paired with the edmx1 pro is so easy to use! I am pretty tech savvy though. I set up my 4 in 1 light by Marygel, hooked this thing up, and within an hour, I had set up a light show in Cubasis, exported it as .mid, imported the .mid file to Multitracker and BOOM! I have a perfectly timed light show with my backing tracks. This is a great app. Worth the money to me, because we make decent money using our backing tracks.

Effective Program for my band

This program has done exactly what I need it to do. Receives midi instructions from my click track and that activates scenes I have programmed for each song. The support has been very responsive. The community has been a help too. Hopefully it will continue to add additional features as time passed.

Developer Response ,

Hello and thank you very much for this encouraging review! We are thrilled to hear that the app is being used for your band and of course we remain available on the community website if you have any questions or would like to suggest new features that we could integrate. Enjoy the show!
