I wasn't sure where to put this thread, so I put it here. Anywho, for an upcoming event, there are some musical performers to accompany a choral show. One of the band members approached me and asked if I new what the difference between DMX and MIDI was. Now, I know they both have 5 pins, and they have a similar pin layout. I thought they were just types of formatting that could share the same cable. I know DMX can self-check and is what we use in lighting for sending info to the dimmers and for intelligent/moving lights, and MIDI is used in sound. Apart from that, I don't have a lot to add and I didn't want to give the guy any information that wasn't accurate. I told him I knew people who would know about it, and that I'd ask them. You are those people. I couldn't answer his question, can you?
