ADJ has announced the expansion of its range of DMX control solutions with the introduction of the mydmx GO tablet-based system. Designed for use by mobile entertainers and for installation in bars, leisure venues and small nightclubs, this revolutionary new lighting control system is extremely powerful but also incredibly easy to use.
ADJ’s mydmx GO combines an app-based control surface with a compact interface that connects wirelessly to an Apple, Android or Amazon Fire tablet and provides a standard 3-pin XLR output for connection to a lighting system. Thanks to its design, the mydmx GO app requires no programming but can be used to create synchronized lightshows across any combination of DMX compatible lighting fixtures.
The app is supplied pre-programmed with a wide variety of easily customizable effects which can be used on any type of fixture. It features a distinctive layout that is built around two FX wheels – one for colour chases and one for movement patterns – which each contain eight effect options. These can be selected independently, customized (by altering the colour palette, speed, size, shift and fan) and combined to create a vast number of different unique effects which can then be stored for instant recall to one of 50 user-defined presets.
In addition to the main FX wheel controls, dedicated buttons are also included within the interface for GOBO, Iris, Zoom and Prism. This allows the software to be used to control even professional-caliber moving head fixtures with advanced feature-sets. There are also five ‘flash effect’ buttons that can be used to easily add impact when the music reaches a breakdown or climax.
The mydmx GO app is designed for mobile entertainers and venue owners who don’t have time to spend hours creating custom scenes and chase patterns but still want to achieve stunning synchronized lightshows.
As standard, the mydmx GO system can be used to control up to 256 DMX channels. However, the software can be upgraded to offer up to an additional 256 channels. The hardware interface can also be used with ADJ’s myDMX 3.0 software (sold separately) and features two DMX outputs allowing for the use of up to 1,024 DMX channels: two full universes (the mydmx Go app only supports a single universe).
“In today’s market, DMX-controlled lighting fixtures are well within the grasp of any working mobile entertainer or leisure venue,” comments ADJ USA’s national sales manager, Alfred Gonzales. “However, turning a rig full of lighting fixtures into a stunning lightshow requires the combination of a powerful control system and creative programming.
“For many entertainers and venues, who don’t have the time to learn DMX programming and then spend hours creating scenes and chases, this is the missing piece of the puzzle. But now the new ADJ mydmx GO package offers the perfect solution.”
The mydmx GO app for Apple, Android and Amazon Fire tablets is available now for free, while the mydmx GO interface is already available from ADJ dealers in the USA and will soon arrive in other territories around the world.
