I know this is no a illumination light forum but I think is some kind related... I would like to share this test using the module SoundMachines SY1, looks very nice in live, zombie

Any other alternative module to convert CV to DMX?

An alternative way of doing this would be:

CV --> CV In Arduino --> Arduino to MaxMSP or PD --> Convert values in MaxMSP or PD --> Export DMX values to Arduino or relative device.

There are probably other ways of doing it but this way can be more efficient since you aren't building middle hardware.

Kinda convoluted but it works, I've know a few people who have done this. I've researched the serial communication topic for a while now, some examples can be found here (http://cskonopka.github.io/arduivis/). Let me know if you have any questions!

Whoops! Forgot about this link.

Anyone else end up getting one of these? I just received mine in the mail today. I work in a pro audio shop and we have a ton of lights so I'm planning on just goofing off for the next few days in the store with it

please, let us know how it works out for you!
videos would help, too...

i use this module live quite often. usually using a pressure points to control a led bar, hazer and strobes on stage from front of house. i don't get to crazy in terms of modulation. mostly presets. but i have done audio reactive strobes from time to time.

definitely handy to control hazer and such from the same case.

I've looked a bit at that one, and I've considered making my own modules for DMX I/O or other lighting control interfacing as well. Should be fairly easy – my day job involves creating custom lighting control systems, so I have the necessary bits and pieces handy.

I haven't gotten around to it yet because I haven't figured out what the user interface should look like. Personally, I would have no use for a direct CV to DMX module – the only thing I would use that for would be controlling a lighting console, and that I'd might as well do with MIDI.

However – just to think out loud now that we are on this subject – I've been considering cobbling together something slightly more complex and convoluted that would be able to control LED pixels, like the ubiquitous WS2812, aka «NeoPixel», and that sort of thing. (The module would also be able to send DMX data).

The module would have some selectable presets with pixel animations – different organic and geometric patterns, and simpler effects like strobes, chases and solid colours. It would have some CV inputs, say 4 to 6, which would control various parameters – like speed, hue, saturation, value, contrast … And of course, the presets would be customisable. Could do USB so the user could change the whole firmware – probably through an Arduino IDE – or the animations could be stored on an SD card. Programming them would require some familiarity with C.

Would that sort of concept be interesting? The hardware would be simple and DIY friendly. Could even possibly sell it as a set together with compatible LED strips or modules, as I have some reliable and reasonably priced suppliers for this sort of stuff.

I've started keeping one of those hip journal threads like the cool kids in the eurorack forum: http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2508319#2508319

this sounds good!
I've done some arduino based dmx things and also neonpixel stuff.
with those small neonpixels, you would need a large setup to do a show i guess.
How would you setup the module for different fixtures?

you can use this module to manipulate led strip screens

Cortical Larvae
you could easily do this with mira and geometry synth as well
Cortical Larvae
poly krom has a good solution or addition as well

can you elaborate on this? what hardware or route is needed?

youre talking about the SY1? and about sending video signals to the strips?
