DMX CPP (DMX512 lighting control software)

A light-weight C++ Windows console application that lets you control RGB and multispectral RGBW or RGBXX DMX512 lights from C++ code, using the Enttec OpenDMX USB device and an FTDI control library. Runs in Windows (because the Open Lighting Project only has *nix solutions). Inspired by a visit to Jewel Nightclub Las Vegas.
