I know that Beam can convert midi notes to dmx but can it convert dmx to midi? I’m wanting to connect a lighting console/board to control lights with software programs Capture and Beam to record lighting changes in Ableton Live. Does that make sense?
Beam for Live cannot do that, but this is something that would possible using Beam for Max (currently in Early Bird phase) and Cycling '74 Max.
You could do this using the
beam.dmxio objects to introduce DMX data into your Max patch,
scale to scale the values to the 0-127 range, and
ctlout to send the values as MIDI CC to Live, where you could map them to any parameter and record the changes as automation.
