Customized Lighting Software

This is a work in progress - a fork of open source QLC+ lighting software designed specifically to be controlled by a DAW / MIDI sequencer.

If you’d like to try it, source code is available on my GitHub page. Build instructions are available on the wiki of the upstream project.

The primary differences from the original by Massimo Callegari are:

  • Additional keyboard shortcuts
  • Many existing keyboard shortcuts changed to avoid collisions with OS shortcuts
  • Function Picker dialog box now defaults to Running Functions
  • Add To Chaser button in the Scene Editor no longer makes a copy of the current Scene
  • Ability to enter “i” for Infinity duration in Chasers & Sequences
  • Ability to enter “d” for Default for fade in / fade out in Chasers & Sequences
  • Virtual Console Cue List widget “Steps” mode has been altered:
    • Assign a MIDI CC to control the Cue List
    • Send a value from 1 - 127 on that CC through IAC to QLC+
    • The Cue List will jump directly to the step numbered the same as the CC value

The new keyboard shortcuts are:
