great product but quite expensive
02.05.2016
I'm a keen Ableton user when playing drums and bought this product to involve lighting.
The box itself is absolutely great build quality. Very sturdy and I trust it to survive life on the road well.

The DMXIS plugin is a great and easy tool to control your lights with Ableton, Logic or any other DAW and the fact that the box itself does all the brain work, you won't have any latency problems like with similar products.
I have to say that the programming can get out of hand very quickly though if you use a couple of lighting fixtures (or for example LED bars with lots of control options).
Easy light shows are very easily programmed - as soon as you want to get more nerdy, it will get very time consuming.

Overall I think the product is a tad too expensive for what it does. (I need to mention here that Thomann actually sells this cheaper than the Enttec themselves)

The best way to control light in Ableton.
It convert midi signal to dmx signal. And works like VST plug in. You can write many automatization track and use it with any tempo.
Works great. Im using it more than 2 years and it works good.
I have 10 lighting items - 150 DMS channels summery. Control audio by AKAI APC 40 MKII and ableton. Some AKAI peds use only for light program.

If use stanalone DMXiS program - it no so usefull. Sunlight is better. Very simple interface. But if use standalone you have tap tepmo button.

DMXIS can be used with playing electronic drums by MIDI. Good way to create show with light and playing.

DMXIS need to be registrated in official site. Any new computer - new code to launch soft. But it is free.

good troubleshooting led indicators.
Nice design with glass sides

Absolutely great thing of any show bands or single players. Many friends cant understand how i can control lights without light master. But its easy, try to edit your show. Using only cheap light items (for example LED PAR DMX 4 ch) you can express your show and have more fans inpessed your visual part.

Awesome piece of kit
Studioworx, 27.10.2018
Recently bought this item again as last one was misplaced. Awesome piece of kit that gives amazing functionality when used in conjunction with a DAW or standalone app. I use it for working with audio and visuals to this is a great tool in order to have my DAW as the central location for all control messages be they MIDI or DMX. Worth every penny!

Could be amazing.
benash, 09.06.2018
I was using this for over a year in my band. The concept is fantastic. However, unfortunately the software lets this unit down.

I was using it with a 2017 MacBook Pro, and more often than not it failed to connect. Never could figure out why.

Updated the software, changed the usb cables, tried it on my mates iMac but it would never be consistent. Perhaps it performs better on Windows PC's ?

I was running Ableton Live 9 software wise. When it worked, it worked perfectly. But It caused so many issues at gigs, I had to sell it.

Changed how I perform live
Dave C, 10.08.2018
This box is incredible. it's allowed me to sync my ableton set with custom lighting, in an incredibly easy plug-and-play manner.

I used it alongside ableton, and the setup was very intuitive and quick.

Also, having gigged with it quite a few times by now, I must say it is surprisingly sturdy too!

If you're looking to automate/control lighting from your computer, this is by far the best choice.

Good purchase
30.12.2016
I love this thing. I actually own two. Its so easy to install and use. Its very convenient to be able to run as a vst plugin or a standalone - great for syncing to your DAW. Ive tried other cheaper USB-DMX boxes but they havent been able to handle large amounts of midi being sent to it. I've hit the limit on this thing by sending so much midi data to it, but its a fairly high limit.

Sometimes the software has problems connecting, but usually you just need to unplug the usb cable and put it back in.

Midi mapping can be a bit tedious- maybe they'll update the software eventually - but its not so bad.

Definitely suggest this~!

Great Controller
02.02.2016
I have been using dmxis for over a year now, and it is never let me down. DMXIS does alot of things that no other lighting controller at this price range can do. You can create a fully customized lighting show which you pre-design to your own music, having the light show respond to the music in perfect sync, this is not using sound active mode which can be very unreliable. This dmx controller can take any band, DJ, solo performer performance artist, theater etc and make their performance look and feel like a real, professional, impressive "Show". The user has the ability to customize their entire DMX lighting rig from a computer program which is extremely easy to use and by far the easiest layout in any dmx software i have seen.

This is now the third lighting software that I have tried and it is by far the best. It allows me to get any of my spur of the moment ideas out quick and have them look great. Whereas before i would have to scroll through menus and menus of information and by then i don't even know what i'm looking for.

This is a fantastic purchase for a one man show, or a band without a lighting engineer but need to control your lighting rig.

The Enttec DMXIS does what it should but not more.
AndersG, 11.01.2014
I got this for my band's light show. We used to run our dmx chain through a foot controlled unit. However this was not very convenient since we all needed our feet to do other things. The DMXIS will need your attention for many hours while setting up. The outlay and editing of scenes and shows are not super smooth. We had issues ranging from not sending scenes on que to presenting a scene but not on beat. This has been worked out now although the whole software part that comes along with dmxis seems so fragile and awkward that it feels like walking a minefield every time you're starting a new scene. The good side is that it's very simple and adding new lights and effects are a breeze and this thing really gave us more time to spend on the visual/creative part of the light show instead of the programing itself.

Great bit of kit, a few changes to the software and this could be excellent
www.neilkristopher.com, 22.02.2015
I bought this piece of kit to help me control my lights and to enable me to use Show Buddy ( which is fantastic by the way). I am a solo singer and use backing tracks only. I have programmed lighting changes for every song I sing ( took a long time). When used with ShowBuddy the lights change at the exact time I want them to.
The lights do exactly what I want and so this works really well.
My main criticism is that when I finish singing and want to play music in-between sets, I have to disconnect the USB from the computer, close ShowBuddy and then reopen DMXIS in order for the lights to be controlled manually (still via DMX). I have contacted them about this and I'm waiting to hear back. Also I find the instructions are not the best, although there are online forums where people can help.

If these two things were improved this would be even better. I do love this product though!

Linaria, 25.06.2019
Super easy to use and set up - only thing to note is that the software doesn't come in AAX format so isn't compatible with Pro Tools

excellent job for a small box
Nicolò, 29.05.2015
I use it connected to my MacBook, and animate the lights via Nuendo automation (DMXIS used as VST plugin on an instrument track). Never had trouble during live gigs, my lightshow is always in sync with the tracks (I play live with some drum-machine/sequencer patterns).

Great little box that does what you'd expect and more
Sats, 03.01.2017
Very happy with DMXIS as a method of controlling our simple DMX lights set up at church.

We have 4 different PAR64s and 4 more slim line ones and this works perfectly for automating our lighting. Syncs in perfectly with our backing track rig set up through Ableton.

Very impressed for such a cheap piece of kit. Build quality feels nice and strong - we've had it for a few months now and no sign of wear and tear.

Best product of 2017
hecibanez, 18.01.2018
I bought this thinking that I would be spending days figuring how to use it. Not at all. I used it the same weekend I bought it. Full midi show with backing tracking. Incredibly easy to program. Works natively with Logic as a plug in. Best Product I've bought in 2017!

Forget DMX controller just use this and a laptop
tynewvol, 07.06.2015
This is the ideal piece of gear if you want to sync your lighting to music. Our band use this with the plugin in Logic to sync up a lighting show with our set. It works flawlessly. We have run it for a couple shows and have had no issues (Macbook Pro).

Great quality, software could be better
18.12.2014
All in all this is a great alternative to a DMX desk, just hook this to your laptop and away you go, the software is pretty good but ver basic and it really needs the options to name the channels cause it's easy to get lost when using lights that aren't in the library

DMXIS great for a small band
Dwayne, 29.07.2014
Great controller for a small band, works with all my American DJ fittings, just go online to download the software to operate each specific fitting you have. I bought a Boss foot controller to operate the functions, which is great especially for a guitar player with no free hands on stage!
