My DMXis was almost enough for small stages and I had the opportunity to control a lighting truss with 10 PAR and 14 moving heads to do fancy stuffs without any problem. But, as I now have to replace my DMXis I also have the opportunity to go for something else. What could have been improved in DMXis software is the preparation of a show based on 3D display and that’s what mainly motivates the change for a different DMX software/hardware. The DVC Gold or the equivalent SUNLITE-EC seem to be a good compromise (I never used more than one single DMX universe for now, but with these new DMX hardware it is not a problem to extend them).
So, I now have to introduce another Nicolaudie entity: DMXSoft. In the following page, at the bottom-right, you will find information about possible software extensions for any “Nicolaudie” DMX hardware:
Here the DMX hardware/software solutions are detailed in terms of options prices and differences in capabilities, e.g. :
But, this doesn’t answer all my questions about the perspective of all these hardware/software marketed by what appears to be a single parent company. So, I would like to know if Nicolaudie has already chosen its champion, because I imagine that developing these software in parallel has a cost that could be reduced by merging these products. For me, learning to use a new software is time I’d rather save for playing music, so I better choose the right one right away.
I finished the DMXis adventure with an original software that is now discontinued and a perspective of a replacement software (still full of bugs, I tried it), that when it will be finalized, will require a monthly/yearly subscription.
