How to Trigger Led spot lights and audio/video

  • Hi,
    I am designing an installation using 6 LED spot lights which are triggered on and off independently and at specific times in conjunction with audio/video. Is this possible using Isadora and a DMX controller, or do I need more hardware? ie. DMX dimmer?

    Izzy supports Artnet out. So if you’d get yourself a device like an Enttec ODE Mk2 or similar, DMXcable and power, you should be good to go. 

    If you prefer working with a more dedicated piece of lighting software, you could always use QLC and have Isadora trigger cues through OSC. You’d still need a DMX out device to get the signal to your lights, like the aforementionted Enttec.

    Hope this helps

    That all depends on the LED spot's you are using. Are it DMX LEDPar's? Or normal LED lights from a standard hardware store?

    If it are DMX lights you can use a standard DMX interface (like an Enttec DMXUSB pro) 

    If it are LED lights form a hardware store you can maybe use a PWM (Puls widht modulator if they are dimmable) or a Relay board to control them. These are also available in dmx versions. 

    I think that would be the easiest option.

    With kind regards
