Yoda is a DMX lighting desk substitute that runs on Windows.
Works well on both laptops and desktops, but a touchscreen device such as a tablet PC is ideal for ease of fader use.
Yoda is available for free: to use it, please contact me to get the latest version and advice about how to set it up.
Yoda is compatible with:
- The EntTec Open DMX USB / DMX USB Pro devices (www.enttec.com)
- The 'Manolator' parallel port interface (with the associated INPOUT32.DLL file).
- 255 or 512 outputs (depending on hardware interface used).
- Grand master and blackout button.
- Hundreds of programmable submasters (per show) with flash buttons and text labels.
- Over a million recorded cues (including point cues), with text labels.
- Split fades, including split wait times, separate attribute times, and fade profiles, on cues.
- Moving light controls, including 16-bit attributes, with auto-move-when-dark playback.
- Auto-follow cues, loops, and subroutines.
- Multiple playbacks, for layering effects.
- Oscillator function for setting channels to sweep a profile to instantaneously create basic effects and movement patterns.
- Network remote control, either via a webpage for using a smartphone as a remote-rigger, or from other programs via a telnet-style interface.
- Shortcut keys for almost all major actions, supporting extra input devices such as the Griffin PowerMate.
