How to: Use $10 LED light tape on stage

Add LED control to your existing DMX mixer

Over the last couple years, LED lights in stage production have become increasingly popular but I never looked into it very far because all I could find online for controlling the LEDs were wireless remotes or other consumer solutions. I also assumed because all I have for lighting control is an entry level DMX mixer and a couple dimmer packs that I'd have to upgrade everything in order to use LED lights. But then I stumbled upon some information about a simple DMX decoder that connected all the dots for me and a week later, with less than $200, I had upgraded our stage lighting to include full color spectrum LED strip lights.

This is a comprehensive guide to everything you need purchase (all available from Amazon!) and how to wire everything (no soldering required!). In the end, you'll be able to focus all your attention on creating awesome lighting design instead of worrying about how it's supposed to be wired.
