After over a decade of trailblazing modern lighting control on iPad and iPhone, Luminair for macOS is finally here! Today’s Luminair v4.2 release give you access to all iPadOS, iOS, and macOS versions under a single subscription plan.
Luminair on macOS is feature equivalent with the iPadOS and iOS versions, offering full project compatibility across platforms. Support for iCloud and other 3rd-party cloud storage providers allows projects to be seamlessly shared across different device types. The macOS version also includes Luminair Fixture Cloud, and internet-based fixture profile library that includes almost 24,000 profiles from all popular lighting fixture manufacturers.
Unique to macOS is support for Enttec DMX USB Pro (and DMXKing ultraDMX) devices, in addition to all of the network-based protocols that Luminair on iOS/iPadOS supports. We’ve also added the ability to dynamically resize the project window as well as toggle full-screen mode with simple action.
For many years, Luminair has offered deep external trigger support for keyboard commands and Core MIDI, and those capabilities have remained on macOS. Connect any Core MIDI compliant MIDI controller to your Mac, or send MIDI commands in the background from other apps running on the same device… the choice is yours.
Moving forward, iOS/iPadOS and macOS versions will receive new feature and maintenance updates simultaneously, ensuring the same Luminair user-experience on whichever platform you prefer. We also have new features in development that will improve workflows for teams working across devices on all platforms.
Luminair v4.2 is available starting today from the Mac App Store and iPadOS/iOS App Store.
