What does a DMX controller do?
DMX is used everywhere in media and lighting technology nowadays. The most important stage accessory - when it comes to creating a light show - is the DMX controller. With this control panel it is possible to take over the direction of all lighting effects during an event. Depending on the complexity of the model, different buttons and knobs are available for control.
These are used, for example, to dim the light for individual lighting effects and spotlights, to control the colors or the movement. In addition, integrated motion patterns can be called up or self-programmed sequences and scenes can be started.
With the so-called Sound2Light mode, it is also possible with many models to leave the control completely to the DMX controller. The built-in microphone responds to the beat of the music.

However, in order to make the right choice, it is important to know the decisive purchase criteria and in which respects the individual light consoles differ from each other. You should focus on the following questions:
- • What is the minimum number of channels the controller must have?
- • What functions should the console offer?
- • Are there pre-programmed movement patterns and color effects?
- • Is there a USB port on the controller for storing and transferring the programmed light shows?
If the controller is also to be used as a mobile unit, the dimensions and weight of the DMX controller are not insignificant.
