I've spent the last hour looking on the forum to find something pointing to something I'm looking for, and no luck...so I'm starting a thread.
What i want to do:
-Run sound cues (up to 8 channels out)
-Run lighting cues
-Run video cues
-all by pressing [space bar]
oh...and did I mention all this on a Linux box running Ubuntu 64bit?
yeah, that's the problem. I'm new to Linux. I know its the most solid OS out there, and most of the programs are free for it.
I was running Show Cue System on a Vista machine (laptop), and loved it...sadly SCS does not run on Linux. After contacting them they suggested I use Wine to emulate Windows but no such luck.
I'm trying to get MagicQ working but something just isn't playing nice.
Ardour isn't playing nice with JACK, and JACK isn't playing nice at all.
If I had the time (and patience) I would learn how to make my own program, and make something super sexy that would make everyone fall in love with me...and so on, and so forth. But, alas, I do not.
My current set-up at the theatre is 24 dimmers, but I'm looking at getting some LED PARs to permanently mount as backlight. So I need something that could handle the full 512, and a colour selection wheel would be nice.
