With DMXIS on board, you’ll be able to use the power of Cantabile bindings or sequence or note driven changes to select different cues in a DMXIS show. As you do not use backing tracks, then the options would be to trigger from keyboard notes, or foot pedals (generating a CC).
In Welsh Floyd, I used to do the following
- Sequenced changes against our backing tracks - brilliant as you can do tempo locked cues that a light man could never do that tightly in time with the music!
- Manual changes from a MIDI CC generated from my FC300 foot pedal for free form changes. Such as the intro of “Shine On” (in this case you can just map a single CC in DMXIS to advance cues)
- Changes triggered by keys on the keyboard. For example in “Run Like Hell” which we used to do unclicked (until we got fed up of the drummer always going out of time with the guitar delay!), then I played the synth bass note with my left hand, so had light cues triggered from that, as well as some general cues I could hit on keys not playing sounds, for the intro and endings where I was not playing the bass notes.
Plenty of choices with DMXIS and Cantabile as a combination!
