    Eliminator Electro 86 DMX issues

    I have an Electro 86 LED spotlight I'm experimenting with, and a Velleman VM116 USB-DMX controller, and am using Freestyler to make my scenes.

All I ask is for help being pointed in the right direction, and I can take care of the rest. as for what room I'll be in, I'll be performing in a medium sized auditorium (about the size of a small screening room at a movie theater) the stage is rather small...

    alright, so I'm just trying to compile a list of everything I'll need to buy to start work on my "one man performance". the Idea at this moment is just to pull off a timed light show using my laptop set to some music. and being the age I am, the veeeeeeeery little experience I have, I have no...

    Laptop lightshow+ Microphone+ acoustic instrument?

    Long story short: we have this thing called a senior project at my school. Basically you pick a topic you are interested in, find a "Mentor" who has experience in the field to help you, and literally spend the whole year working on said project. My interest is in stage performances, particularly...
