    I have been doing xmas light displays since 1991 and this is my 3rd year of using computer controllers. I mainly use LOR controllers and software but am expanding into DMX this year...


    Looking forward to reading a lot about DMX etc and getting direction/advice..


    Regards


    Bryan

    Welcome to ACL,


    Sounds like you've discovered the world of controllers that are cheaper than LOR ones.
    It means you'll have more lights, not that you'll save any money. Lol


    Pixels are not as scary as many new people think and can be used as a only slightly more expensive option than Basic (*Dumb) RGB lights, if that's your thing.


    Regards,
    Rowan

    Yes, I have moved into the world of pixels and have about 2600 at the moment.. At the moment I am in designing the layout and then building the items. I started small last year with only 3 LOR pixey controllers with a total of 48 channels. This year I am hoping to triple that with DMX...


    I am looking at the falcon 16v3. Their website says you can purchase it from here somewhere.. When I manage to hide enough funds from the wife, I will look at getting it.
