MUSIC VISUALIZER: Create the ultimate music listening experience. The app listens to your music and changes the effects based on the mood of the song. Lights get active during intense parts of a song and flowy with softer melodies and magically change colors at just the right moment, or customize your own. (Best with 4 or more lights.)

STROBE MAKER: Strobe your lights with different types of effects with the Matrix Strobe Maker. Interact with your lights using multitouch and 3D Touch technology included on iPhone 6s and newer.

BEAT-SYNCED EFFECTS: Use the SceneMaker Effects controller to program your lights with up to 23 different effects that can be customized with your favorite colors. Just turn on your lights and let the SceneMaker run all night long.

EFFECT MAKER: Create your own looping special effects with our powerful Effects Maker. Pre-program your bulbs to make light shows that fit your play environment. (Hue & LIFX only)

SHARE EFFECTS & SHEETS: Share your custom-made effects and effect sheets with your friends using AirDrop.

IPAD VERSION: The iPad app offers a DJ Controller-inspired design for ultimate live-performance lighting control. Configurable sheets allow you to setup your effects and colors in advance, and the push-button interface lets making rapid changes easy. The iPad version is the preferred platform for home DJs around the world.

AUTOMATIC BEAT DETECTION: Sync effects to your music using your iPhone or iPad’s built-in microphone.

TEMPO CONTROLS: Control the speed of your lights with precision using manual tempo controls. Easily go double-time or half-time at the press of a button.

LIGHT GROUPS & ORDERING: Your lights, your way. Include only the lights you want to use. Assign your lights an order to create lighting effects that rivals custom-built installations.

ABLETON LINK & MIDI SUPPORT: Seamlessly sync tempo with other apps & devices using Ableton Link or MIDI Clock Sync. Control effects by sending Program Change codes over MIDI.

Very Friendly


So I got the app, and I fell in love with it. So I upgraded one of the features. It stopped working and closed every time I tapped one of the features I wanted to use. So I contacted the developer. Him and I went back and forth giving me suggestions on trying to fix the app. I told him none of the solutions worked. So he was very nice about going through the program to have an update. I updated as soon as he emailed me back that there was a new update. Ever since that update, the app has been working beautifully. I’m so in love with this app.

Love it !


This is one of the best hue lights app in the App Store. The UI can be a bit intimidating at first when first launched, but after trying it out a few times you will get the hang of it. I would love to see in future updates the ability to input any tempo not preset tempos. Aside from that no complaints !

Turns a smart bulb to a party bulb.


I love being able to create light shows to my favorite song. Wish I could record and play the light show later.
