I want a simple midi controller for controlling CueLux on a MacBook. Korg has 3 midi controllers : Korg nanoControl, Korg nanopPad and the Korg nanoKey. Which one is the best for my needs. I'm a DJ that works alone. Controlling the lights must be as simple as it could. CueLux works fine on my MacBook but I miss a hardware controller under my fingers ;-). Lights or : Showtec LedPars, JB Systems Winners, Showtec movingheads, strobo, ledtubes, Solar RGB, LaserWolrd RGY laser...). I want a midi controller for overiding color and gobo's on the fly, selecting chases, choosing patterns, ...
Can I do this with one of the 3 Korg controllers or is a Behringer BCF 2000 a better choice?

Thx,

Eddy C.

Hi there

Just got my bcf2000, i really recommend it!
The best thing is the recall layers.

Well you can program it as youd like with color "go buttons" and chases on faders etc etc.

with the korg things you dont got faders for chases or other things.. like gobo rotation.

cheers

True.. I think the bfc2000 is the best MIDI controller for Cuelux so far.  :D

I have been using the Korg NanoKontrol very happily but it is not as sophisticated as the BCF with motorized faders - these allow you to easily switch between banks as they update automatically.

For easy colour programming options etc the MIDIcon from Elation sounds like a good option.  It is a MIDI desk designed for lighting thus has encoder wheels ... due to be available from end March I believe.

Happy shopping!

I would vote for the Elation Midicon or the Behringer BCF-2000.

Yeah, I like the Midicon because of the jog wheels, but it doesn't have motorized faders :(

motorized faders are essential when using several banks.

the elation midicon would be perfect with motorized faders.
