I have been researching "how to do" a Christmas Light show. I do not know why it took me so long to come to this web site ... there is so much information, and so many knowledgeable people here !! I used to do stage lighting for rock bands, so I have an affinity for music + lights (albeit, manually controlled). My first idea was to go down the LOR mains road .... and then I discovered the world of E1.31, DMX, and RGB LEDS. That is one big learning curve !!! I think I have now found most of the main pieces to the puzzle, so now to get some gear and start to play with it. Thanks for welcoming me here and I hope to become a contributor as soon as possible (now I am still in "sponge" mode - soaking up all the info I can get !!!
