Best (consumer level) laser I have ever seen

Nice bright multiple colors. You can get cheaper lasers but you will only get 1 color so I think this thing is worth shelling out the extra cash. Still not too sure why blue lasers are so damn expensive but that should change soon as more amd more companies are releasing more lasers. I just love lasers!

This thing is as expensive as Hell but this is the coolest moving head combo light I have seen.

Just found a bright but cheap DMX strobe @ only £73.74 inc VAT

Can adjust speed and brightness and our software can do the sound to light if needed.

Our solution comes with a hardware dmx interface, will release a beta version and free updates of version 1, at a price of less than £350(current cost of a dmx inteface alone)

We've almost completed our new plugin, a dmx sequencer, image below:

Weve added beat detection and sidechaining to our plugins, works great.
were half way to completing our 3rd plugin which is a vuMeter effect.

All works amasingly well with our crossfader, a world first? :D

This is exactly what I had been dreaming of. Any idea when you'll be shipping your beta?

Great work and best of luck!

Thanks!.

We have no idea when we will release a full beta, though we will release a demo of our plugins in a few weeks so people can try it out (no lighting though)

We still have to finish off the design of the USB hardware device and the windows driver for it.

Our driver contains a 512 channel mixer with crossfade, is how ableton can host a series of plugins.

Soon we will show a video of AVA in action, just got to get our hands on a high resolution camera with a decent frame rate and exposure suitable for lighting.
