Firstly let me apologize for intruding with probably some very lame questions. However, I have found myself at a dead end, and I think I need some expert help with lighting and syncing those lights to multiple audio zones. I have a dedicated computer system with cubase sx, midi controllers an Maudio card running 10 audio channels. The audio goes to different zones in a yard haunt that is closer to a community stage production than a "boo scare kids" type of thing. I am trying to find a way to sync up and control lights in each of these zones (emulating lightning, fluttering lanterns etc.). I'd like the ability to have about 8 channels of independantly dimming lights that I can "animate" to the soundtrack. Is there a way to sync Cubase SX to a DMX controller? I have found midi "dimmer packs" but often they don't take key pressure into account, can you guys reccomend a midi dimmer that is under 200$? Can you think of a better way to reach my goals? Thanks for letting me bend your ears a bit. all the best, Rob Here is my site if your are interested www.skullandbone.com .
