How can you program a light show? Basically, you need a MIDI editor. Any editor will do its job, even free ones. But maybe it’s easier to choose a software, where you can add your audio pilot to sync the events better. For example Cubase works well.
Before you start, read the manuals of your lighting devices, you want to control. MIDI events are usually mapped 1:1 to DMX events, where the note describes the DMX channel and the velocity of the note the value of the DMX channel multiplied by 2. We’ll add a video tutorial describing this process in more details in the future.
