Yes, I did. I'm delighted to hear that this is possible. I think once I get to a perm install on the venue, I'll be switching over.

Yes .. dongle supports myDMX 3.0 and you actually need it to open the second universe ... BUTTTTT .. no automatic programming and it's $178 for a permanent license.

I've tried it before - and I got nowhere - I guess because I didn't buy the second universe.
I can't imagine anyone here needing a second universe .. 512 channels allows for like 8 25 channel devices and 100 more run on RGB ...

I wouldn't buy it anyways - but I guess it won't work with MyDMX 3 without buying it?
No, myDMX 3 runs on the HW as is .. you have the option to upgrade to 512 channels on the 1st universe (myDMX Go dongle come out of the box with 256 channel support) or do that and buy the 2nd universe for a total of 1024 channels.

if i ever needed that many channels id simultaneously have the definitive need for a more complex dmx rig...

even if a person had 24 uplights... just assign them in 4 groups with 4 dmx channels and youve still got an exciting show without needing power over every single uplight separately

I currently run about 14 uplights and put them all on a single starting channel. I prefer the way it looks to have the entire room in a unified color over having multiple colors running.

The only issue with is if u use one of the sweep settings like the "car" ...all those lights will cut off at once and u would miss the sweeping flicker effect

With the app, you can create presets with all the lights a single color (I have setup all blue, all white, all red, etc.). But as Chris said, if they're all on the same DMX channels, it limits any chase sequences.

I installed mydmx 3 - and it never even saw the mydmx go.

I see on the dmxsoft store, there is a download for the "free" version of DMX 3 .. maybe there is a license (even free) that needs to be downloaded to the dongle?? I've never tried it.

i find stuff like this so annoying....a simple request....as noted its something that ANY cheap dmx controller or software can do.... they allow for 50 presets... is it that crazy....or lazy....to want a feature that plays them like chases?

but no...the "shills" have to chime in...
