Just in time a simple and good controller
Afraell 10.03.2023
Ok, i gotta say i'm impressed.
First of all, it arrived a few days before a party i had to do lightings on. Pretty simple setup 4 beams, 2 wash, and around 12 par rgbw.
Well here my toughts:
1. Simple create a new devices
2. Easy effects for beam, moves, colors
3. Easy to create presets and live edits.
4. Ready buttons like strobe, blackout and speed makes all simple.
5. Boot speed is 2 sec.

1. Only 10 gobos, colors, positions can be solved by live editings
2. Only 8 groups in total can be assigned
3. Focus on some devices works poorly
4. Lack of "clear" button that sends all to init.

Overall, awesome device. For small gigs, parties it does the job even quicker than ma2.


Quite useful little gaget.

I use it at a venue, where we have permanently installed fixtures and it really does its job well. Super easy to use and almost anyone can set up lights for their event with this controller. It has also saved a couple of shows where the ''real'' lighting desk crashed so the light engineer did a whole concert with this real fella and it looked amazing.

I have 2 small issues with it as well.
1. If you're using a hazer and some fog or CO2 jets, then you don't have dedicated controls for the hazer. Only option is the smoke button which is primarily used for short bursts. I've tried to work around it and save a ''live edit'' button with different intensity of haze but it doesn't work very consistently.
2. If you have more then 8 types of different fixtures ( or you've placed your same type of fixtures to 2 different places i.e same moving head on the stage and up hanging from the truss. then your options will be quite limited, since the controller only has 8 groups that you can assign fx to.
You can always create some static ''live edit'' buttons for any extra fixture groups as well but it's kind of annoying.


Very much impressed

I am used to traditional lighting consoles so the wolfmix was a big change for me. But overall it turned out very user friendly (also thanks to the youtube tutorial videos). I programmed in some presets and for DJ sets this works fine. For live performances I have now purchased a separate controller with faders to link with the Wolfmix.

leider nicht so alpha wie ich gedacht hatte,
man ist was die Movements der Moving Heads angeht etwas eingeschränkt
(er kann nur hin und her,8, rotieren, und 8 step sequenzer mit der phasing Funktion lässt sich das etwas ausgleichen)
erwarte aber aber auch perfektionistisch perfekte Lightshows.
also Erwartungen etwas runter schrauben.
Verarbeitung (wenn man das gerät auf den kopf stellt hört man und sieht man die Platine 1-2 mm im gerät hoch und runter bewegen - nicht richtig befestigt, was ich erwartet hätte zu dem preis) natürlich tut man das im normalen gebrauch nicht aber trotzdem.
potis hätten auch etwas strapazierfähiger sein können.

hier hat man sich natürlich eher auf die software konzentriert, was mit den herunterladbaren fixtures natürlich ein mega plus Punkt ist!
ihr bekommt einen kleinen computer, unboxing ähnelt einem iPhone
sehr fancy alles.

wenn ihr nur lauflichter programmieren wollt/farbwechsel etc mit paar Par Strahlern perfekt
(zum Beispiel ihr seid eine Veranstaltungstechnik Firma die nicht immer bei kleineren aufträgen zb Gebäude aufleuchten lassen; die grandma mitnehmen wollt - go for it)

derbys usw habe ich noch nicht damit gesteuert.
(alles was kompliziertere Funktionen hat als gobos, rgbw, "statische" movements und Dimmer, überfordert unseren kleinen freund hier)

würde sagen die Idee ist noch nicht zu Ende gedacht
auch die mk2 die bald erscheint hat diese dinge noch nicht verinnerlicht.

was ihr auch bedenken müsst ist dass es ein Performance Controller ist - auflegen und währenddessen hinter euch die Lightshow ein Feuerwerk machen lassen ist nicht leider

ihr müsst jedes mal drücken bevor sich etwas ändert,
was bei der abnormal kurzen Aufmerksamkeits spanne unserer jüngsten Generation kein Vorteil ist.

wer hohe Ansprüche an sein licht hat (und während dessen zu tun hat) sollte lieber auf eine Lösung mit pc und interface zurückgreifen
