Package Approved

This package was approved by moderator TheCakeIsNaOH on 25 Aug 2021.


DMXControl 2 is the versatile and well-tried light control software for theater, disco and show lighting. Though it is based on a DMX channel oriented control concept, it still offers functions which aren't integrated in DMXControl 3 yet. So Lightshows synchronized with music can easily be created and the textbook module is unrivalled.

Important: Those, who do not want to create music-synchronized light shows or dont want to use the textbook should use DMXControl 3 instead since DMXControl 2 isn't developed further any more!
