The DMX+AV Show Control Software is the standard for lighting show control software. VenueMagic has combined timeline editing, audio and video mixing and editing, and sophisticated DMX lighting control into one complete, easy-to-use package. They also added playlists, programmable sliders, DMX routing, DMX recording, MIDI control, beat detection and a whole lot of additional features. This version also includes a USB to DMX interface to control up to 512 DMX channels right out of the box.

Put simply, VenueMagic is software that plays audio files and controls lights (and other objects) through a DMX interface. However, VenueMagic is much more than that. VenueMagic includes a built-in library of sounds and lighting effects that help you put your show together in no time. You can also load your own WAV, MP3 or Windows Media sound files to customize your performance. For example, you can have intense sounds of rain and thunder enhanced by perfectly timed flashes of light, to simulate a truly powerful storm.

You build your VenueMagic show by dragging sounds and lighting effects onto a timeline and lining them up where you want them. Then you can add sound effects such as echo, reverb, chorus, etc. You can choose from the built-in lamp effects such as lightning, candles, fireworks, chaser sequences and more, or you can create your own.

Video Playback
VenueMagic’s video feature allows you to synchronize your light show with any video file or DVD track. Edit your favorite videos in a single VenueMagic track and play them back-to-back. Supports dual monitors.

Lighting Effects
A built in library of lighting effects makes it easy to create your ultimate light show in no time. Simply select the effect you like and drag it onto the timeline where you want it. Invent your own lighting effects using VenueMagic’s envelope editor. Sync chaser effects to the Beat Tapper to give you complete real time control of chaser sequences.

Audio Editing
VenueMagic’s powerful multi-track audio editing capability lets you put together your soundtrack inside VenueMagic as you build your show. Layer in effects such as reverb, echo, and flanging. There’s no need to mix down your sound clips using a separate sound-editing package. Supports MP3, WAV and Windows Media (.wma) files.

MIDI Control
Command your whole show using your favorite MIDI input device. Cue music and timelines and control light and volume levels on the fly. You can also send your synchronized MIDI events to other MIDI devices.

Sync timeline playback to external MIDI clock and MIDI LTC sources.

Virtual DJTM Plugin
With the VenueMagic Virtual DJ plugin, you can sync-up and control VenueMagic timelines entirely from Virtual DJ through a programmable VenueMagic control console. Works with VenueMagic running on the same computer or remotely over Ethernet.

USB to DMX Control Box
The VM-USBDMX-01 is a USB to DMX control box that is designed for use with VenueMagic’s Show Control Software series. The control box plugs into a standard USB 1.0/2.0 port, and can control up to 512 DMX channels.

    Comments about Venue Magic DMX+AV Version w/ Control Box:

    After using another show control software program for 5+ years that turned into vapor ware, I found VenueMagic and oh boy I'm glad I did. The timeline based approach makes it super easy to build amazing shows that rock. Just drag any of the included lighting effects such as sunrise, paparazzi, candlelight, lightning into the timeline and there you go. It includes a huge database of fixtures which can be dragged into any DMX address. This version allows unlimited audio tracks which allow me as a solo sax/vocal/keyboard performer to add sax or vocal harmonies without having to bring my TC Helicon units to the gig, but if I do that's ok because with VenueMagics' extensive MIDI capabilities I can add an event track that can control my Voicelive 2 or Voicelive Touch to add sweet sax and vocal harmonies. I can use my FCB1010 to start and stop my playlists, change lighting cues...the possibilities are mind blowing. This week they are adding a TelePrompTer feature for lyrics. I can't remember all the lyrics to 500 plus songs so that is a sweet feature. I can also record my moving lights pan and tilt with a USB joystick and it will show up as an automation curve in the lighting track. I could go on and on but you get the picture. Now go get this software.
