Product Description

The MagicQ Compact Connect is a lightweight USB control surface that connects to your PC or Mac to control lighting, media, and LEDs.

Small enough to travel inside hand luggage, the portable Compact Connect is packed with powerful features. It has 2 direct DMX512 outputs and sends up to 64 universes of ArtNet and sACN directly from its onboard network port without the need for additional licenses or dongles. The design of the Compact Connect provides illuminated access to fixture parameters via 8 rotary encoders and live show control through 10 playback faders featuring Flash, Go and Select buttons as well as dedicated Grand Master and Crossfader for overall level control. An internal USB hub, audio input, 10Scene/Remote Input port and working light socket bring additional connectivity and convenience.

The Compact Connect is ideal for use by touring Lighting Designers or for installation into theatres, schools, clubs, studios and venues. This affordable solution offers quick tactile playback control in combination with the power of MagicQ software running on Windows, Linux or OSX.
