Menno Pleij (Midiator)

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Menno is currently starting a company around his Midiator hardware/software device meant to make programming and controlling light shows fun. The device consists of a controller, a touch screen and an embedded PC running a sophisticated Max 5 patch.

The first version has already been used on big festivals such as North Sea Jazz and Sensation. Let’s see what happens when Menno gets his hands on the DMX-controlled LED-lights of The Getaway Café ;)
