Thanks, Gary. Ummmm, my setup does not exist for lights. My Ableton rig is sweet though, lol. I'm just looking for what seems to be most intuitive to those using Live/Max for light control so I can plan what is needed to execute for our live show. I don't think I would want to go the osc route (using a wii remote, etc)since that seems more gimmicky to me than practical and our lighting engineer will not be on stage. Therefore, A more traditional lightboard from a manufacturer like Chauvet or Martin will probably be what we will use to "patch in" to existing house lights. We will also likely adorn the stage with various LEDs that have not yet been purchased. I know there are some cool panels, spots, movers, etc that are available and designed with expandability in mind should we have success...or should I say the money, lol. That being said, what we would like to accomplish is to have "scenes" in the lighting software (any suggestions welcome for Mac user) that are triggered based on the scenes triggered in Ableton Live.
Also, I don't have Max just because I was hoping to hold out for the release of 9 where it is included. I always like to have the most current version and since it's release seems immenant, I thought I would wait on that. Any word on release date yet?
Thanks again for any future suggestions as well as the links already provided ;-)
Happy New Year, friend :-)
