ArtNet DMX Configuration

Global configuration parameters for ArtNet and DMX .

The Usine light engine can manage Enttec Open DMX, Enttec USB pro devices, as well as all ArtNet-DMX devices connected to the Ethernet port.

But on OSX you'll probably have installation troubles with DMXUSB PRO devices. It's generally caused by FTDI drivers conflicts. So in this case you can try the utility app free FTDI Driver Control 1.0.3 to disable the built-in FTDI driver.
