Imnlooking to add a dmx controlller to make my lights a bit less like a random disco. Currently I have a pair of gigabar spots (1,3,7,12,16 channels), a pair of led power bar washes (2,3,4,7,14channels) and a few led pats with who knows what channels.
I’ll be adding some more effect types this summer - maybe a pair of adj mini lasers and some moonflowers or moving heads.
So I’m not fussed about fancy control - just a few Chase and sound to light programs but am I right in thinking a 4 channel controller would work with 3 channel lights? I just wouldn’t have anything of on the 4th for that light?
or do I need to step up to a 7 channel controller?
A simple box probably suits me better than taking laptop to gigs but if there is an easy way to plug in an iPad that might work - I probably want to start simple though and just have a box to turn stuff on and off and sync them up if the channel counts work.
