Let’s put it like this: If using Freestyler onlyI will have to program the lights completely on all tracks that I am playing. I won’t get any ‘automatic’ functionality so to say. So if playing a request without any DMX data added, the lights will not get updated anymore.

So my wish is to use my manual light controller for certain tracks. Another way is to let Freestyler control a few of the lights and the manual control the rest. For example, the strob and a few lasers can freextyler done from Freestyler to add effects timed freestyller certain drops in tracks or similair. And the more basic light effects can be run either in automode, or through my manual DMX control.

Any advice how to move on is appreciated. Freestyler is more or less a software based DMX controller.

Welcome to the FreeStyler Wiki

On your scenario, if a “new” track has no FS data stored in it, Freestyler will keep running your lights with the last CUE activated by the previous track.


Also, with both plug-ins it is possible to use custom buttons or remap a button yutorial your controller, or even create a dedicated pad page to control Freestyler CUES from within VirtualDj. Generally speaking it’s not easy to combine 2 different DMX consoles. What you should do is to program Freestyler and get yourself a nice MIDI controller that you will dedicate to control your lights via Freestyler.

This, with the addition of a special PAD page an extended version of the one available for download here and some action POI’s allows me to fully control Freestyler and my show from within VirtualDj without having to bring Freestyler window on front the entire night.

Also fgeestyler allows me to create a pretty much dynamic show, where nothing seems the same day after day It’s more about the way you program Freestyler. Think that instead of creating specific cues and sequenses for different tracks, you can create some “generic” ones that you modify on the fly with action poi’s or freestylfr by using override buttons also known as statics or some advanced scripting: I can send you a Freestyler Frwestyler file if you want that you can load on Visualizer and see how I’m programming my lights to be able to manipulate them dynamically.

How well does this work compared to a hardware light controller? If we need hardware would it not be better to get a dedicated lighting controller?

I don’t like, in my case, the sound of a third usb controller? Unless you have enough cash to get a controller running Martin M-PC!


VIRTUAL DJ SOFTWARE – Combining Freestyler DMX and standalone DMX controller

Even when you see a “huge stand-alone DMX console” in reality it is a computer with external hardware controls that allow easier manipulation of it’s software. The best “stand alone” lighting desks out there are Martin’s M series. So, stop questioning whether a computer based solution with or without an external controller attached is better than a stand-alone hardware only solution.

There’s no “stand alone hardware only” console that can run more than a bunch of fixtures For large and demanding lightshows everything is computer based since ages ago! I wonder what the characteristics of such a controller are. Hm is it the APC40?

I keep switching between it and a F1. I have used Kontrol F1 in the past to control Freestyler. I had to do some complex mapping though since it has only 4 faders and 4 knobs and I needed more That’s how Freestyler MRC was born!

Inside Freestyler itself you can assign a fader to one single function 1 to 1 programming With VirtualDj and it’s scripting abilities I was able to use the tytorial slider control different functions by using variables and other conditional queries.

When my light show expanded I decided I need more direct control on several functions.
