Computer-controlled lighting.

You can use Emulation on your preferred platform; it is available on Mac OS X and Windows XP & Vista.

Emulation software is shipped with a USB to DMX interface. The interface sends out 512 channels through a ESD protected DMX512-A port. Once the hardware interface is plugged in your computer the DMX data is duplicated over Art-Net. This is also useful for connecting to 3rd party visualizers.

The cuelist system in Emulation, used for programming light sequences, is analog to the systems used on larger lighting consoles. It features separate Delay, Fade in & Fade out timing and comes with a shape generator and programmer window.

    As reviewed by highsierrapianoplayer on 5/30/2011

    I bought the Elation EMUlation Software after having it demo'd for me at a Guitar Center in St. Louis. I was so impressed I came home and bought it online. I bought the most recent version because I have Windows 7 and a 64bit system. The package includes the CD (with software/drivers) and a special USB/to female XLR cord. The Elation program is pretty easy to figure out. I did call tech support and the dude who wrote the manual actual helped me out! There is a dropdown menu that lists all the lighting manufacturers (i.e., Chauvet, American DJ, Elation, etc.,)and all of their respective DMX lights! It actually shows a image of your light, and the program automatically senses the light and its DMX information (Color, Rotation, Tilt, channels, etc.!) I experimented with a Elation ELAR 180, a Chauvet 260, and a American DJ PRO 64 LED and I had them doing their own thing in 10 minutes from my laptop! So everything pretty much is hooked up in series, from light to light, and you can address any respective fixture either manual on the light or from your laptop. You can build scenes and run them or do it manually if you're green like me! The price is steep but you can put the program on as many laptops/desktops (but there's only one proprietary XLR/USB cord. Elation lights and products are above and behind Chauvet and American DJ, and their lights and products are top notch and right there with Martin.
