    I think that before DMX there was AMX, maybe I'm wrong.

    And to answer your question, I have no clue what RMX is.

    RMX

    Random
    Multi-plexing

    A short lived protocol from the late 60's and early 70's. This was the brain child of two Rolling Stones roadies. After a week and a half long binge with Keith Richards, in a small town on the pacific coast of Mexico, and after a Pharmacutecially enhance meeting with Carlos Castanata, these two Roadies, James "Zig-Zag" Mcgee, and John "Joker" Johansen, got the idea of a control protocol that would randomly rotate through the channel and dimmer numbers at Random intervals. The "Idea" being a wholistic "Brand New", never before seen light show every night. Basically making every concert a completely different experience from night to night. Unfortunately, due to a bug in the random number generator, that was used to compute the random channel assignments, The channels that had been set aside as Mick Jaggers specials were seemingly "mispatched" every night for three weeks running. This led to a paranoid Mick accusing Keith of trying to ruin his carrer. Once Zig-zag and Joker were fired from the road crew and the LD went back to using AMX, all was forgiven and the rest is history.............:mrgreen:

    If Van is telling the truth, which I really don't believe that he is, it is a good story. If he is not telling the truth, it is one of the better BS stories that I have heard. I laughed, I cried, it had everything!
