Lighting & show control software

Mar 2024 – new releases of Show Buddy Active and Show Buddy Setlist are available on the Downloads page, offering a number of significant new features and performance improvements.

Show Buddy Setlist

Setlist manager + backing track player

Show Buddy Setlist organises your gigs, plays your backing tracks, runs your light and video show, and controls your MIDI equipment – leaving you free to concentrate on a great performance!

Show Buddy Setlist works with either Show Buddy Active (to control lighting and video) or DMXIS (to control lighting).

Show Buddy Active

DMX lighting + video controller

Show Buddy Active is our latest generation of lighting & video control software. With multiple universes of DMX control, advanced visual effects, simplified graphical programming and video output, this is the perfect software for performers and designers wanting to create ambitious automated multimedia shows.

Show Buddy Active can transmit DMX data to ENTTEC PRO compatible interfaces (including DMX USB PRO, PRO Mk2, and DMXIS boxes), ENTTEC Open DMX compatible interfaces, or any Art-Net to DMX node.


ArtNetMon is a free utility for displaying Art-Net lighting data. Very handy for debugging those pesky Art-Net network problems.

Legacy products


ENTTEC have ceased manufacture of DMXIS hardware, and the software is no longer in active development. The most recent software can still be downloaded here, and the DMXIS license server and fixture editor remain active.
