Absolutely amazing app. It's unbelievable that an app made by one awesome lighting tech could be so complete and have so many features. I was blown away that it has an effect engine, and it works well. Fixture profiles galore! If you can't find a profile for you fixture no worries there are so many predefined generic rgb profiles and each one has modes with the channels in every order. It made it super easy to work with some generic led washes without the need to create a custom fixture.

This app is a full-featured, cheap and convenient way to control lighting. I've been using it for a small band setup with wireless DMX. I had a serious problem with saved files getting corrupt and causing the app to crash when opening. I found a workaround, which involves deleting all the P*pb*.jcc files from the show archive. I've reached out to the developer, who was very responsive and promised to fix the issue. One thing that I would change though is make the file format open, or at least human-readable, which would add a lot of options for automation and batch editing.

Awesome app. Basic operation is very straightforward. Works perfectly with exalux connect one via wifi. Battery drain is minimal since it only send necessary frames and exalux takes care of the rest. You can leave locked phone and somebody can still control the lights, not sure if this can be turned off. Subs and playbacks take some getting used to. Manual is well written and helpful 90% of the time. I was looking forward to midi ble with korg nanokontrol studio, but it doesn't work on moto g9+
