Timer, DMX & Wireless Controller Project

As part of my DJ setup I have a smoke machine, bubble machines and light chaser unit that are not DMX or timer controlled. I wanted to add a timer to control the smoke and bubble machines and also DMX to control the light chaser automatically. I decided to design a complete solution that allowed timer, DMX, wireless and manual control of all these things

DJ Event: Outdoor 30th Birthday Party

I was hired to play a 30th party which was held outdoors at a sporting club. I knew the person through friends and the night was a casual affair but offered me a chance to test drive my new setup and see how well it could fill a large outdoor area. 

Repairing My Light Chaser

One of the components of the lighting setup is my trusty old PAR light chaser which I built from a kit back in 2002. It simply sequences 4 lights (80W PAR Flood Lights) either via an oscilator or via music. I have always loved this chaser because it's simple, rock solid and it fills a room with light. It was pretty much the single effect I could count on...

Lighting Rig Setup & Programming

The updated lighting rig that we have been designing is now pretty much complete and undergoing programming. We initially spent a few weeks programming and testing the lights but have now decided to completely reprogram the lights to fit a number of different moods.
