ENTTEC OPEN DMX vs ENTTEC DMX USB PRO

Hello,Enttec and lanbox are not in the same league. With Enttec you send all your channel from you computer, it's sometimes quite a big load and you have to reinvent the wheel with isadora: masters, sequence etc.With lanbox, all is inside the box, cues, time, chase. You just have to send order from Isadora and the lanbox take all the load. Yes LCedit is not very friendly, but it's rock solid and in the case of Isadoa crashing, you still have it to send the cues (it append…).You have 3 ways to communicate simultaneously, USB, midi and FJ45, so different software can send orders at the same time and you can choose what type of mix between them (HTP, LYP, transparency).Finally you can use artNet, so you can send some cues with D::Light.Just to give you a more open choice!All the best,Jacques

The Lanbox is a lot more expensive (I saw a secondhand one recently for $350...) than the Enntec DMX Pro and does have more functions. It does work well with Isadora however.
Thanks jhoepffner and all for thats precisions. I have the chance to work with a LandBox-LCX, let's test it !

I'm jumping in here a bit late, but I can definitely confirm that the Open DMX version is not compatible with the DMX Pro. On the Open DMX version, you have to control every single element of the stream directly -- including sending the special "break" signal between packets. Good for hackers maybe, but really, spend the 150 EUR (or whatever it is) and get the DMX pro. You'll be happier.
Or, as Jacques, correctly suggested, the LanBox which is great and does a lot for you.

really glad to catch this thread now - thankyou! was just trying to decide whish to go for!
by the way gapworks - your interface looks like a thing of beauty!
just to add.. I have had great success with products from DMXking.and the new micro, is Enttec pro compatible, and a great price point.http://dmxking.com/usbdmx/ultradmxmicro
Your ENTTEC patch seems very interesting !
I've never totally understood how to make ENTTEC work well with Isadora.
Could I have a look when it's done ?

btw - i'm selling a Lanbox LCE - the old one that doesn't have USB connection. you connect via RJ45 and i've run DMX directly out of Isadora through it with no problems. no box, but in VGC, with cable and original power supply. 80GBP (plus postage) - PM me if anyone's interested.
dear @gapworks ,
could you post your patch for usb-dmx pro? i Already have someting in max msp but i would prefer to use just isadora 3 for this project,
is it compatible with the new version? bests
@michel thanks !
@Michel though patch is not working with isa 3...
bugs of display ( freezes) and fader don't follow mouse...
I don't have the hardware to test, but I have posted a couple simple enttec compatible user actors to the Plugins page to help users get started with DMX input and output.
Just check the plugin page for any items with 'dmx' in the name.
