With Engine DJ hardware, you control the entire performance, play the tune you know will get them to the dance floor, then add beat locked lighting effects to create an immersive audio and visual experience. Engine Lighting brings music synchronized light shows and the power of on-the-fly visual effects to your fingertips.
What exactly is Engine Lighting by SoundSwitch? It’s a standalone technology that automatically synchronizes lights to the beat grid of your music. With its industry-leading automated phrase detection, Engine Lighting delivers stunning light shows without any user interaction. Raise the fader, press play, and enjoy the show. As you’d expect, you can also use the touchscreen to override automations and add your own effects.
It feels like magic when lights react to your touch, and even more so when moving heads follow your finger swipe gesture from side to side. The glorious HD touchscreens found in Engine DJ products offer an array of intuitive touch controls for Engine Lighting. Effortlessly trigger color overrides, strobes, UV, smoke, Autoloops, and Static Looks with a single touch. Adjust light intensity, and moving head position with a simple and familiar swipe gesture.
Access and trigger 32 beat synchronized light scenes or Autoloops. Grouped by music style, Autoloops are always activated in perfect sync with your music. Create your own or customize the default set with SoundSwitch desktop software.
Raise and lower light intensity (brightness) with a simple finger swipe gesture. Lights can be controlled all together or individually by group. Intensity control allows you to dial in the perfect amount of light for your performance or venue.
Put the light where you want it. The position X-Y grid allows you to select any of your moving head lights and change their position with a touch and drag gesture. This is great for making on-site adjustments to any of your preset positions.
Supporting both DMX and Philips Hue lights, Engine Lighting is ready to fill your party or event space with audio synchronized lighting. Use Basic mode to start a house party or amplify your livestream mix session. When you’re ready to hit the road, unlock Pro mode to take control of the entire performance environment.
Use Engine DJ on your computer to export your SoundSwitch venue and light show data via the Sync Manager. From the track list, you can easily see which songs have custom or autoscripted light shows. Songs with auto or customized light shows will display a dot in this column.
Bridging the gap between industry-standard DJ software and lighting systems.
Set up your lighting rig and venues, add automatic or custom light shows to your music, create your own Static Looks and much more. SoundSwitch software is not required for Basic mode but will allow you to create your own custom or autoscripted light shows.
Simplify your lighting setup with a compact USB to DMX interface. Connect the interface to any available USB port on your Engine DJ hardware, and the DMX end to your first light fixture or DMX Splitter. Engine Lighting Pro requires SoundSwitch branded hardware.
