DMX512 (Digital Multiplex) is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control stage lighting and effects.

It was originally intended as a standardized method for controlling light dimmers, which, prior to DMX512, had employed various incompatible proprietary protocols. It soon became the primary method for linking controllers (such as a lighting console) to dimmers and special effects devices such as fog machines and intelligent lights. DMX has also expanded to uses in non-theatrical interior and architectural lighting reflecting its popularity in theatres and venues.

PA system

The PA system is the equipment, amplifiers and speakers that produce the sound that he audience hears. 

Mrs. Miggins' Pie Shoppe use professional equipment including a 32 channel digital mixer which allows all of the individual instruments, drums and vocals to be adjusted and the levels that come out of the speakers set.

We use two high power 3.8kW RMS digital amplifiers and Logic System speakers which are renowned for their quality.

This is in addition to the equipment that the individual musicians use.

Beware bands that only use a vocal PA system, these tend to be only suitable for small pub gigs and don't reproduce the sound for the whole band.

A set is a collection of songs played together. Usually a set lasts from 45 to 60 minutes and is about 15 to 20 songs.


What is a DMX universe? Well a DMX universe is a set of channels, 512 to be precise on which DMX signals will operate. If more than one universe is required for a set up, then with the proper software, interface, and universe merging techniques it can all be done.
