Can photon be controlled by DMX?


I’m new here and looking for an IOS app that I can use to run lights from the stage. I specifically say run as i’m looking for something i can automate. I use the app BandHelper for my setlists and would like to send midi notes on a specific midi channel to an app that can receive them and load lighting scenes in the background.

I did a quick search but found no info on this forum. Any guidance would be appreciated.


Photon is intended to be used in master, photon control lights. Photon has no input for receive order. But we can study for a future version.


  • 1 for midi control!!!

I am in the exact same place as Beeker - I use Setlist Maker (a version of Band Helper) on IPad as my control centre on stage. As I select songs in Setlist Maker it sends midi controls to switch fx pedals on/off, plays samples or synths in AUM. To be able to trigger sequences of lights or combinations of lights in Photon via midi and IN TIME to midi clock would just be perfect.

A few other IOS lighting apps offer midi control - but none combine it with the look and ease of Photon. Keep up the excellent work!!
