I'm refitting a double decker bus for a friend as a theatrical tour and I'm looking for a controller for the lighting, sound effects and special effects (smoke machines/automatic blinds). I'm pretty sure this is achievable with a tablet, I'm just looking for some advice on the best way to do this. Most of the lighting and effects will hopefully have DMX capabilities and I know there is programs for this, I'm looking more at an all in one program that would let me set up the entire performance in an easy to use format for whoever runs the tour.
At one stage I want to control automatic shutters, change the colour of some LED strip lights, trigger some dry ice and then play a certain sound 30 seconds after the lights change.
There must be a program out there that would let me do all of this from a tablet of some sort. It must be highly programmable as far as timing and intensity etc. while being extremely simple and clear in operations mode.
Any help would be more than welcome, I'm looking forward to trying out some cool stuff on this job!!
