Price History of DMXCalc

Description of DMXCalc

Entertainment lighting equipment uses a control system called DMX512. DMXCalc is a simple and elegant calculator which does address arithmetic for DMX equipment. You can enter a DMX universe number and a device address to have DMXCalc calculate the absolute address. Or enter an absolute address to see the universe and device address. The + and - buttons can be set to increment or decrement the address by any block size. Handy for addressing a sequence of moving lights. When there is not enough space in the current universe for another fixture, the Address and + values turn red. Some DMX equipment utilizes dip switches to configure the address. The dip switch page has switches which show the settings for the current address value, or you can set the switches to match those on a light and discover what its address is. The sound button "plays" dipswitch settings so you can set switches without looking at the display. The Block page can be loaded with a range of blocks, based on the block size and starting at the current address. Tapping any block on the list loads that address into the calculator and dip switches, and tapping the arrow shows a list of all locations in the block, with both local and absolute addresses. This feature is particularly useful for addressing a series of moving lights, dimmer packs, or LED fixtures. A fourth page has a quick reference list showing all DMX level values from 0 to 255, with corresponding percentage, hexadecimal, and MIDI values. Altogether indispensable for the entertainment lighting technician.

Reviews of DMXCalc

  • I like it but “flip” is broken

    I was trying to flip over the dip switches so that switch 1=256 as is sometimes the case but it seems the “flip” function isn’t working. It’s possible I misunderstood the use of that function also.

    Otherwise I really like the app and use it often for figuring out absolute addresses.
  • Seems okay, but doesn't work fully with OS8

    The first two pages seem to work fine, but the last two freeze the app. It does give absolute values, which is helpful, but for $1.99, I expect it to fully function.
  • Letters

    An option to change blocks from numerical fixture number 1: 1-6, 26: 151-156 to A: 1-6, Z: 151-156, AA: 157-162 and so on would be nice for rigs that prefer letters.
