‘Just tap the keys to the music’
all of your lights and fixtures will follow along!

Press any letter-key on the MINI-D’s keyboard,
all DMX fixtures will respond with one of your pre-stored scenes.

Press one of the ‘number-pad’ keys,
one of your pre-stored chases will play scenes automatically.

Press any letter-key again,
the chase stops and that scene is shown and held until another scene or chase-key is pressed.

Letter-keys are called ‘scene-keys’
Number-pad keys are called ‘chase-keys’

DMX Lighting and Animation Fixtures that must Operate Automatically and Unattended!

Once MINI-D has been programmed,
with all of your scenes and chases, the keyboard can be removed.
MINI-D then becomes an embedded PLC-like controller.

The MINI-D has two programmable I/O pins!

One pin is an analog, variable-resistance input pin.
This pin can be used to starts chases, show scenes or change speeds.

The other pin is a digital input or output pin.
As an input, this pin can be used as a ‘trigger’ from a switch, push-button or other contact-closer, to pause/go a chase or even start a different chase.
As an output, this pin can be used to ‘trigger’ an external device like a fog machine or siren.

 

The complete MINI-D starter kit is only $199

Includes: MINI-D, PC-keyboard, power pak & DMX output cable.
