The American DJ My DMX Buddy is a great bit of software for programming your DMX lights. The software interfaces your computer with your lights via a very small USB to DMX interface. It’s much cheaper than a lighting desk and offers a huge degree of flexibility.
I have a bunch of lighting also for sale at the moment here, which works perfectly with this system.
PRICE: £30.00 plus £5.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance. SOFTWARE LICENSE WILL BE TRANSFERRED UPON PAYMENT.
I have the following American DJ (ADJ) DMX controllable disco / stage effects lights for sale:
6 x 64B LED Pro
1 x Stinger
1 x Starburst
1 x Galaxian GEM LED
2 x ComScan
Never gigged and so in almost as-new condition (apart from being a little dusty), this set of lighting will be perfect for any mobile or fixed installation disco.
All lights are LED and are DMX programmable. In fact, I have an American DJ ‘My DMX Buddy’ that’ll make programming them a lot easier, also for sale at the moment here. I'm also selling an Enttec DMXIS MIDI to DMX package which is comprises two components; a USB to DMX interface and a software plug-in that’ll allow you to drive the lights from within your DAW! Yes, it’s just awesome! The plug-in can also operate in stand-alone mode without you having to open your DAW.
I’m not going to bore you with the technical specifications of all these lights, suffice to say that you can find out a lot more about them, if you do a little research on-line.
I've had several enquiries to purchase individual lights. I'm not going to be mean so here are some prices:
64B LED Pro
Galaxian GEM LED
COLLECTION FROM HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, HERTFORDSHIRE ONLY.
ALL THIS FOR JUST 850 QUID !!!!!
Did I mention all the 110Ω DMX cables I've got, all with Neutrik XLR connectors? No? Well I'm bunging them in as well! 🙂
Still one of the best hardware multi-track recorders out there, the Alesis HD24 has not just stood the test of time but continues to prove itself as one of the most reliable machines to record up to twenty-four simultaneous tracks of audio.
What I specifically like about the HD24, is its ergonomics. Quite simply, there’s no faffing around. Big buttons that do the simple tasks that you want them to do an’ that’s it! Love it!!!
For location recording or any situation where you don’t want to be bothered with a computer, the HD24 is just perfect.
THE DOWNSIDE… The reason that the HD24 fell out of favour is that Alesis used its own proprietary file format which although very robust, meant that you couldn't just pull out the drives and connect them to a Mac or a PC. You need to use either the original Alesis Connect software which will only work up to 32-bit Windows 7 or early Mac OSX, or something like HD24 Tools, which is a freely available third-party program.
The next problem is connecting up your IDE HD24 hard drive and this takes a little skill. Not difficult but you have to respect a couple of things. Hot-swappable hard drives are now the norm’ but that wasn’t the case back in the days when things were IDE! There are lots of IDE interfaces available on the market and even caddies to make mounting of IDE hard drives a breeze.
I have three of these machines. Two of them are being sold as part of a couple of large PA systems. One them is being sold by itself. All HD24s are in beautiful condition. All come with hard drives in both bays and all are supplied with the Alesis remote control and I even have some caddy boxes for sale.
Designed to make transferring of data (recordings) between the Alesis HD24 and a computer a little easier, the Fireport is a Firewire adapter for Alesis FSR formatted IDE hard drives.
Alesis developed its own file format (FST) which was amazingly reliable. The problem was however, that you couldn’t just pull out the hard drives and plug them into a Mac or a PC. You had to use their software (Alesis Connect) to access the file structure. The Fireport helps you get over the initial connecting up, if you like.
Like the HD24, the Fireport is an old bit of kit so it would be wise to check compatibility with your computer and its operating system.
