Thanks all for the encouragement, goes a long way and rikhyray I realy like your website's intro, a lot of work or money.
Were adding a new feature which is assigning lighting fixtures to positions (left center and right):
What this means is when a fixture is set to "left" and you send a value it's: 0 = far left and 255 = far right(as in normal dmx).
When set to "right" it's the other way around: 0 = far right and 255 = far left.
And finally when set to "Center" its 0 = center, -127 = far left and 127 = far right.
This will be used with midi velocities for launching sequences by notes, simular to a synth, play a light note and the lights play there sequence to the outside and when a hard note is played they play there sequence to the inside(or top to bottom, or even both) and when set to "center" they play towards the center on a light note. Should be very effective and time saving, music for the eyes.
On every step you can adjust the velocity sensitivity for every control, great effects!
I have not looked at any other lighting software as copying ideas may limit what can be done, sometimes adding one feature stops you adding another thus would end up just like theres, ive never heard of anyone prasing lighting software as it exists today.
A plugin I have yet to show is the Master Output, which you drop on to the master track, containing the Crossfader and a few other features like device on/off ect. You can either have the crossfader independant or assign your midi controller to both our crossfader and also Ableton's crossfader so can crossfade lighting and audio at the same time.
You can also assign our controls to other things like your LP filter's midi control so as you move the filter down, so do the lights
If anyone has other ideas for lighting plugins, let me know, probably won't build them now because I want to release what I have got, but in version 2.
Maplin Electronics here in UK have a deal going on lighting, buy 2 and get the stand free for only £160(they were £100 per light, now £80), lights have pan, tilt, 11 colors, 9 shapes and a strobe effect, im using a few there good for the price(Please don't go out and buy them now if your thinking about buying my interface just in case we don't complete and release it, I don't want to be flamed!!!) The built in audio to light feature is not too good, they just swing round randomly and look a bit silly(so do most night clubs lighting, ive been traveling for 8 months here in the UK), though you can connect them together which I have not tried as I have my solution and Ableton!
Hopefuly soon you will too!
I think this the larges post ive ever posted. Better get back to work.
