Pre-Requisites

If you don’t have the 2.0 version of the .Net framework installed, you need that first. This is a 22 MB download, so get it started and then go get yourself a snack (broadband) or some dinner (dialup).

How do I know if it’s installed?

To determine if you have it installed, open the Control Panel, go to Add/Remove Programs and look for “Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0″.

Note: All controllers on the port must have the same channel count for them to work correctly.
AdjustablePreview 56.0 KiB The same functionality as the original Preview, but it allows you to adjust the pixel resolution and size. It also allows any size picture to be used.
Basic Parallel 5.5 KiB 8-channel controller connected to the 8 data lines of a parallel port.
CurrentExecution 28.0 KiB For use with a LedTriks or Virtual LedTriks display. This will show the name of the currently-executing sequence, formatted as you specified. Requires LedTriksUtil.
DMX-512 5.0 KiB For use with the Enttec Open DMX USB modules.
Also requires the IDMX (in the Plugins\Output directory) and FTD2XX (in the Vixen directory) assemblies.

Add-Ins

NameSizeDescription
AnalogSpectrum 128.0 KiB Like the above-mentioned Frequency Spectrum add-in, but this version has two sliders per band -- lower and upper limits. The intensity of the resulting channel events are based on how far the band's decibel level is between the limits. i.e. If it reaches halfway between the limits at a given point in time, the channel's intensity will be approximately 50%.
CometConversion 24.0 KiB Consumes a Comet playlist and generates one or more sequences from it.
DMXAddIn 20.0 KiB Use of this add-in will maintain a constant DMX stream while the application is running, regardless of whether or not a sequence is executing. This only works with the Enttec Open DMX.
EFX-TEK Prop-2 Support Files 1.8 KiB Support files for EFX-TEK Prop-1 Sequence Generator
MIDIReader 44.0 KiB Parses a MIDI file and creates sequence events based on note-to-channel mappings that you create.
Prop1SeqGen 28.0 KiB Automates the creation of a Prop-1 PBASIC program to turn your sequence into a stand-alone application. Also requires these two text files, placed in the AddIns directory.
Prop2SeqGen 28.0 KiB Just like the Prop-1 version, but for the Prop-2. Also requires these two text files, placed in the AddIns directory.
RemoteClient 72.0 KiB Allows for remote execution of sequences over a network or the internet. It will also allow you to synchronize multiple Vixen installations, allowing you to create shows that span the neighborhood or the world.
Download this text file for a listing of commands that can be called from a web page (such as a PHP script) used to control the remote client.
Remove Client Commands 2.1 KiB Available commands for the remote client.
RGBLEDAddIn 32.0 KiB A convenience utility for RGBLED users.
Spectrum 144.0 KiB Acts like a 31-band equalizer, allowing you to set up band-to-channel mappings and threshold levels. The results are events that are created in response to certain decibel levels of frequency bands.
WattMeter 36.0 KiB Calculates the load generated by a sequence for all channels or any subset of channels. If you go over a specified threshold, it will tell you where. It will also give you a graph of the whole sequence's load over time so you can see it visually.
Waveform 120.0 KiB Creates a simple lighting sequence based on the music you selected. Great for setting up a foundation or guide for more complex sequences.
