Add Dimension To Your DMX Universe
Configure your dmx universe in minutes.
Tell Captivate which fixtures you have, and where they are located in space.
Add fixtures seamlessly, without the need to update scenes.
With captivate, hundreds of DMX channels boil down to a handful of intuitive parameters
Take control of these parameters live, or automate them with Captivate's familiar, synth-like modulation tools.
Light groups allow you to add complexity as needed
Combine visualizers and effects in any way to perfect your visual experience
Add your own videos and photos to create something truly unique
Visualizers and effects listen to the parameters from the active light scene so lighing and visuals are automatically synchronized.
With Captivate, you'll forget there are 512 DMX channels running behind then scenes
Powerful Midi Control
Plug in a midi controller to "play" your lights like an instrument.
So Intuitive that someone with no lighting experience can control a show.
And this is just the beginning
We have lots of ideas to make Captivate more powerful, flexible, and fun

- More parameters
- More & improved modulators
- Macro Controls
- More & improved visualizations
- Visualizer layers
- Projection Mapping

How It Started
I've been a musician all my life. Music is fun and dynamic. But lighting software has always been static, clunky, and unintuitive. This forces artists to choose between a pre-defined light show that locks you into a set, or a light show that doesn't fit the music.
Captivate solves these issues. Everything is in sync, I can take as much live control as I'd like, and adding fixtures to my DMX universe is a piece of cake.
The end result is an app that's incredibly fun to use. And the results truly are captivating.
