I have read that it the Mydmx software doesn't like to run in the background (let me know if that isn't true). We are triggering from Ableton Live and we have a live operator who is running that (contains harmonies, background guitar parts, etc). That brings up another point, can you trigger from a software program to the MyDMX on the SAME computer? I would hate to have to get another laptop just to run the lighting rig when we already have a Magic 260 or if the DMX Op Pro would fit out needs. Plus, if the computer ever went down, we could still manual trigger lights with the DMX OP Pro.
Jingles, how easy is it to trigger via MIDI in the MyDMX and how many Midi triggers can I have? Obviously, I can do way more intricate scenes with the MyDMX than I could with the Op pro-moving scenes and what not.
I don't know, I guess I am a bit lost. I just want to be able to have a MIDI track in Ableton that can trigger the lights to move without spending 1K+ on the 1024FC or the showdesigner. There has to be something that does that.
