Arkaos with lighting board

Postby frogspawn » Tue Mar 10, 2009 1:52 pm

I work in a theatrical and educational setting. Last year my ex-boss bought Arkaos for our new theatre space with the aim to use it with our lighting desk (ETC Congo), via Ethernet i think. However, we never got it working this way and it turned out we did not have the right version of the software. Before he left he said he had downloaded the right version and I have an activation key. However I am not sure how to get it to work. Does anyone have any ideas. I am using a Mac Pro and 10.4. would be grateful for any advice - we have a student production it would be useful for.

So what version do you have? arkaos 3,6,5 midi or arkaos 3,6,5 DMX?

it is pretty simple, you need to have the DMX version to run DMX or artnet.

you can't upgrade from midi to DMX, so if you have not have the DMX version. you will have to purchase it.

It says what version it is in the start up screen.

If you have the DMX version and want some help setting up artnet, you can contact me direct.
