    Are you looking at using your lighting controller WITH a computer or a computer AS your lighting controller. If the second, there are many programs out there to do this, depending on your application. What are you trying to do?

    Yeah, just Googled your console, DMX control is an option, if it is LMX-128 then your chances of controlling your lights with a computer just dropped. As for controlling your console from your computer again, cannot be done. If you are using DMX rather than LMX then you may be able to use a USB-DMX dongle to control it from your computer. I'm not sure how experienced you are in terms of this style of stuff, so PM me for more info. The Glossary here on ControlBooth is really useful if you don't know what something is.
