      Wanted a small but powerful compact light show. Using this running Mac with 4 FX350' and 4 Colorbar SMD's. Using speaker stands with a custom made speaker/bracket shelf for the top so it is adjustable on height with bugee cords to secure. Using clamps to hang Colorbar SMD's below the moving heads. Fast easy setup.

        Comments about Chauvet DJ Chauvet Xpress 512 DMX to USB Interface & Software:

        I picked this system up when I was challenged to do the lighting for a theatrical performance. Using it to control some moving heads, led bars, dimmer packs, and lasers.

        For anyone with even the most basic knowledge in DMX lighting this setup will prove to be very easy to understand, and while it may not be the most pretty looking software, once you fully understand it you will find it can do almost anything that you need it to do. If you can find a feature, chances are you aren't looking hard enough or it will probably be coming in a future update. Which leads me to one of my favorite things about this software; the support forums. A huge array of questions and answers from a whole ShowXpress community. When you have a question or a suggestion for a future update the programmers of the software quickly respond to you. The software has a feel that it was built through the suggestions of lighting techs around the world. The 3D generator feels a bit intimidating at first glance but if you take the 5 min to read the instructions on use you will find it is actually very simple to use and a very powerful tool to have in your arsenal. The editor is exceptional with its 2D images, grouping keys, and wicked scene generator. I personally am running it on a touch screen computer which makes Live really convenient not having to fumble with your keyboard in the dark. After purchasing this the only regret is I didnt go with the 512 Plus instead. But for the price, you definetly get all that you pay for and more. One final note if you just want to try it out before taking the leap and purchasing the interface, just go to their website and download the program. They offer the software for free so you can see what you are getting into.

        This system integrated into our church house light system easily and allowed me to easily use some movers and LEDs. Very easy to use and program. Wish it had a few more features, like control over fade times in ilive.
