    Hello All.

    Looking forward to joining this community. I am a complete newbie when it comes to the lighting world other than what I have picked up on my own over the last year or so.

    I run the light show for a small bar band.

    Currently using 3 different hardware controllers to run these lights. However I am switching over to computer control.
    Will be using Lightfactory software to control the lights. I want to be able to trigger the lights through Midi notes that come from the drums and Keyboard.

    I would like to feed the triggers from the drums into a "brain box" but also run the midi out from the keyboard into the same box and then to the computer. From the box to the computer could either be connected via USB, network or DMX. Prefer network or USB control

    I would love to keep this as simple as possible. I already pack in way more stuff than I would like to. But the band has really prospered with the light show that I do for them.

    Thanks for any and all input and advice that you can provide. Looking forward to working with this community and learning.
