Show Controller v3 ships

Alien Apparatus Company has released Solo Performer Show Controller v3, an update to its system for controlling the background music, lyrics displays, MIDI effects, and light shows for musicians. The unique system can be controlled by the musician while performing by using a six-button foot controller to control software that runs on both Windows and Macintosh computers. Solo Performer Show Controller plays mp3, AIFF, WAVE, and MIDI files; it can control MIDI effects units, lights that operate using the industry-standard DMX512 protocol or MIDI, and can display lyrics on-screen in a karaoke-like manner. Version 3, which was previewed at the 2006 NAMM show and now shipping, brings a new user interface that improves the flexibility of the viewing options, allowing users to easily save play lists and customize the screen display. It also expands the lighting capabilities from 16 channels using an integrated 32 channel DMX512 light controller. The company also added MIDI-based light control. It is available for $600 and runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
