A very good app with absolutely marvellous support!

Im an old Maclux user but since a few years I use only the LXBeams version of LXFree so maybe I shouldnt review the LXFree, but most stuff of any importance is in the free version as well so I guess it´s OK.

The part I use most is its integration with LXConsole, Qlab MIDI, OSC and Applescript.
Its a strong side of the LXFree project with great potentials.

Of course I also do all my lightplots in LXFree or LXBeams and encourage venues, collegues and others who may have any opinion of value regarding my plans to download this app.
Its great to be able to communicate editable plots. Sending pdf attachments and a list of requests and questions to touringsites or guesting groups is finally a thing of the past!

Now anyone who understands the basics of lightdesign can create and edit a lightplot, easily and for free.

The part I like the least in this free app is the Symbol Editor and the way symbols and "Keys" are connected. Ive never managed to make much sense of it.
Setting up devices like moving lights is also a bit of a weak spot I think. It can be done, but it's a bit messy.
However I can tell since Im an old user that the software has evolved greatly and just keeps getting better and better everyday.
I gladly stick with it confident that its a mighty good choice that will keep evolving, with mine and other users help and feedback, from great to fabulous.

And seriously, if you look around, which are the comparable alternatives to the prize of 0 bucks?

I know of none.
So lets support this one.
[Version 1.8.0]
