So, the band is looking at options for an upgraded DMX controller.. We played a small theatre that had an ETC Smartfade console and it seemed to work well for them. Does anyone has experience with this console? I need to know things like ease of programming, durability, compatibility with external operatiing (e.g. Mac or Windows) systems, basic stuff like that. One other possibility is a used Avolites Pearl, but the sheer size of that console makes it an unlikely candidate. Input, please! And thank you!
