View Full Version : Light Programming?

Usually when I see hardcore bands they bring a few lights along, especially if it's a small show. Most of them will have a macbook present and they don't have any song clips or anything, so i figure the programming comes from the laptop? How do you do this and what does it entail?

a midi program that control lights, possibly an array of presets that are ready for each song he picks the song and thats it.

The mac may also have extra sounds on it, like voice overs etc etc

I met a guy after this gig who programs all his lights through midi on his mac. Sounds complicated but it was really easy.
