? Controller Software for moving heads


Recommended Posts


I am new to the lighting world. I am a musician and want to build a simple stage light setup for my bands. 

I have been always impressed with moving heads, got myself some second hand ones (imove 50s and 250s) and learned the basics of DMX and the controlling of fixtures.

What I am struggling with is to find a right software for controlling / programming moving heads. I looked into Qlc plus, which I think is an impressive piece of software, and I found my way around it.

But what other commercial options are there? I have an enttec pro interface and will lock into emu and d-pro, which is quite affordable. Are there any other tips you guys have for apps thar have a good usability for beginners?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Difficult question, as Brian says who is going to control the lights, for bands the best options are DMXIS.  or Lightrider or Daslight, the list goes on.

Good luck making the choice. If you are already familiar with QLC then stick with it. All software will work, it is a question of what works for you.?
