Hey man, I'm using DMXIS and it's been a great little set of software/hardware for me.
I have attached a video below. In it I have all of the midi cues programmed into Cubase, and the lightshow is done automatically. However, you can use it without the DAW and have make lighting presets that will respond to MIDI notes. Check out the video here.
If you have any questions - let me know!
