All you need is a midi compatible controller. Most controllers use DMX lighting which is new to me. I use a lightronics controller with the appropriate dimmer packs. You can set up to 9 different lighting scenes, and 4 chase scenes. Controller 1 controls the fade rate from 1 scene to another, Controller 2 controls the speed of the chase scenes, Controller 50 controls which light scene is displayed, and Controller 60 controls the chase scene viewed. It's all pretty simple and cool. When I get to my laptop, I'll attach a midi file with the light scenes, vocal effects and guitar effects.
