    Seeking a DMX trigger MP3 player. I am familiar with the Fright Ideas BooTunes MP3 Player, but at $129 it seems a bit expensive. At ~$30, this MP3 Module seems like a good price but I am not exactly sure how to wire this to DMX. Do I use something like this TTL to RS485 Adapter Module? I am...

    Browsing for ideas, I came across these DMX flame pots: These would have been great 20 years ago when I was a kid trying to figure out how to make a flaming hellhole in my parent's yard. Like I have previously mentioned, I'm going to run with a circus/sideshow/carnival theme this year...

    Been building over time, all started with halloween and that carried over to xmas as well. I do a synchronized show with music, lights, effects. Right now Im up to 11,000 discrete channels of AC, DMX and RGB stuff. Halloween is much smaller than XMAS- more like 2,000 channels. Here's a quick vid:

    We're re-listing everything because the offer we had to purchase the entire haunt for $10,000 didn't work out. Our preference is to sell the entire haunt, including the computer with the VSA routines and multiplex soundtrack. Of course buying the entire haunt means picking it up. I estimate...

    Here's a prototyping shield for the Arduino I developed: It's a very simple circuit, a very basic MAX485-based receiver. I decided to use RJ45 connectors because I use a cheap USB-to-RS485 adapter, wich has an RJ45 connector, and it works with standard network cables. On the next version...

    Has anyone used wireless DMX control with VSA? I was wondering if this will work thus replacing DMX cable runs from computer to prop.

    Is anyone familiar with how to control a wiper motor with DMX? I have tried to use a Matrix dimmer/switch pack, but the pack continuously outputs a small voltage even when no signal is being sent. I currently run the show on a VSA RAPU and I would like the controller to be compatible with it...

    Hi folks, I am a new HalloweenForum member, and have been a bit puzzled by something that I hope someone may be able to give me some guidance on. I picked up a Chauvet Hurricane 1101 last year for our 2014 haunt and have been happy with all but one aspect: the lack of DMX512 control. For this...

    OK, let’s get started with our Board of Chuckie (BoC) DMX tutorial. This year, I switched over to DMX to run my Skeleton Quartet that I call Sindy Skinless and the Decomposers. It GREATLY reduced the wiring needed, improved the stability of the servos and made setting up and tearing down a 10...

    Has any one here triggered BooBox Flex using DMX commands from VSA? BooBox Flex has a way to trigger the animated shows in its controller via DMX commands and I have been attempting to trigger via DMX commands from VSA with no success. Thank you,
