Awarded 2012 Lighting Control "Product of the Year" from Live Design Magazine!
Advanced creative lighting control for Live Entertainment, Film/TV production, Architecture and beyond.
Luminair is the ultimate lighting control tool for live entertainment, film/tv production, architecture, and for anyone else who works with creative lighting. It's a full-featured lighting control platform, capable of controlling all DMX compliant gear including LED fixtures, conventional lighting, dimmers, media servers, and more, using any Art-Net or sACN to DMX interface.
- Wireless Magic
Wireless connectivity allows you to be unchained from your gear. Luminair is built on top of open industry standards, and transmits DMX over Wi-Fi using Art-Net and/or sACN E1.31 protocols, making it compatible with lots of existing DMX interfaces and other lighting gear.
- Projects + iCloud
Luminair's new project system periodically saves your files in the background, so you never have to manually save again. The new interactive project manager shows you a preview image of all of your files. Luminair also now works with iCloud, for seamless syncing of project files between multiple devices.
- Powerful multi-touch controls
Luminair has a brilliant and refined user-Interface, with powerful touch-optimized controls for working with individual channels, as well as multi-channel fixture profiles. Some of the highlights include wide fader controls, large trigger buttons, RGB and CMY color pickers, XY controls with accelerometer support, and easy touch-based channel assignment.
- Stacks Playback
Luminair offers continuous automated show playback with Stacks, making it very easy to put together shows for a wide variety of uses. Creating looks and playing back shows is a similar process as creating an iTunes playlist. Scenes are added to a stack, each with their own individual hold and fade time.
- Timing FX
Apply new Timing FX options like Sound Active, Tap Tempo, or Global Timing to control Stack playback. Sound-active mode can detect sounds over the built-in microphone or other audio input hardware and trigger your lighting shows. Sound Active mode also supports Inter-App Audio (IAA) on iOS 7.
- Smart Ready
Luminair can now control smart lights right alongside your DMX-controlled lighting. Great for an additional design element in Film/TV production, architectural/installations, and so much more. Luminair supports Philips Hue, "Friends of Hue" LED lights, as well as "Smartlink" compatible Living Colors lamps.
- MIDI and OSC Input (iPad only)
Luminair supports MIDI and OSC input for various controls and actions. Map faders, knobs and buttons to trigger scene changes, change fader levels, playback and more. Compatible w/ USB CoreMIDI, RTP MIDI over Wi-Fi, and Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer.

Good, but not perfect.
Needs a feature to "link" faders in groups. (Can link one set of faders with "master") overall very good. Crashes my iPad 2 sometimes when playing too aggressively. I will update my review when I actually learn how to fully use the app. Need a place to download pre-made light shows for your fixtures to speed up the process.
Almost no tutorial content
When I got this up and running, was shocked to see that I can't create faders for groups as well as discrete zones of lights together in the same project. When I do, I get conflicts. Software doesn't seem to want to lock on to my Enttec ODE with unicast enabled.
Very simple and easy to use
