Not the best

29.08.2016
We bought this controller to use it with 6 RGBW LED pars and one LED effect. It had few good reviews so we gave this unit a try. Programming and controls is mostly the same as any cheaper DMX controller. If you used one of them you can use this one also. Comes with manuals in 4 languages (which is not necessary for us but nice). Sadly no USB light but that is written in the description so no problem. AC adapter plug locks in the unit so you can not turn it off by accident.

But the problems starts when you start using the unit.

Transactions between fadder values is not smooth. It feels like value refresh time is to low and when you try to change fadder value smoothly you can clearly see that light output of the LED's is jumping from one value to another (cheaper DMX controller do not had this issue it is first time that i see it like this)

Also when you do not use unit for a while it has like 1 sec pause when you change fadder value. It seems like controller awakes from sleep or something. Feels very laggy overall. Do not know if all the units is like that or it is only mine.

Also the main problem for us is that TAP SYNC function is not working correctly. You can not sync music beat to a light switching. Somehow unit calculates switching times faster than i am tapping a button. It is not a first time that a cheaper units has this problem. We had to return Stairville DMX-Master MK II ENC for similar issue with a TAP SYNC function.

So, as you guessed it i had to return this unit. I contacted someone from Thomann light department to help me select DMX controller that works as i expect and now will be ordering Stairville DMX-Master 3 - FX.
Third time's the charm i hope.

Small price for small hotels and clubs

11.01.2016
The device has a very good price / performance ratio and I would buy it again for the above application at any time. Now the details:
Processing: Surprisingly stable. Live performances do not deter.
Functions: 12 fixtures with 16 DMX channels (without free patch possibilities, starts at 1 and ends at 192) can be controlled. This means that, for example, if two spotlights can be heard on the same DMX address, sixteen spotlights can be integrated into a show as well as four moving heads. So ideal for clubs and small stages.
DMX: So far no misfires when used with LED spotlights and moving heads.
Music control: OK. But you can not expect miracles from this.
MIDI: Not tested.
Controls: The buttons work well, no bouncing. The faders run very well, especially here I would have at the price less expected.
Operation: After a brief introduction, you have the device under control, provided you are not an absolute light novice and knows roughly with DMX.

Minus points: The controls for "Speed" and "Fade Time" cover linearly such a large area that the interesting and for most shows really meaningful settings, lie in a range of sliding path of a few millimeters! So just adjust with the fingertips and not reproducible.
This was also the only thing I noticed negatively.
