So i'm almost up to two years on here. I've taken baby steps into RGB strip and dumb RGB string and controlled it with existing software that isn't designed for blinky (but still worked ok) or standalone controllers. I'm constantly looking at software and once I think I've made up my mind - something comes along to change it. Chat is good - but almost always forms a bias towards who ever is logged in at the time. (To those who have taken the time to run through things with me so far - thankyou). I'm posting here so I can weigh everything up without trying to scroll back up to remember what everyone said in chat... so here goes. First of all - I currently have a Ray 27ch DMX controller with several dumb RGB string. I also have quite a bit of WS2811 strip which last year ran off one of ray's WiFi controllers. I also have a bunch of different retail packs of LED strings and such. Ideally i'd like to have something that is expandable later, but i'm not necessarily planning on going crazy. I'm looking at a P2 to control the strip this year. So I've tried the demo versions of pretty much everything. I struggle to even get through channel assignments on some of them and I've resigned myself to going for something that costs money, because I don't have the patience to learn some of the freeware complexities. So i'm down to LSP (Advanced) at $249 or LOR (Advanced) at $139.95. A week ago i'd settled on LSP but the cost is the prohibitive factor and now i'm leaning back toward LOR. My questions are: What am I losing \ missing out on going with LOR over LSP? (or am I missing nothing?) What limitations does one have over the other? What 'extras' am I going to need to buy to make these packages work with the P2\Ray27ch? I'm not interested in fanboys of one product badmouthing the other. I just want honest advice. The price of LOR over LSP is very attractive, and right now I can't see the benefit of the extra $110 for LSP... open to any suggestions... and I promise this will be the last time I ask the question on sequencers!
