USB2DMX logo

RD/USB2DMX is a low-cost interface between your computer and your DMX devices. With it, one can easily turn a laptop into a professional DMX console and control a single universe with up to 512 channels. Perfect solution for DJs, theaters, disco, live shows and all other applications driven by the DMX-512 protocol.

Taking the knowledge I gained from several research projects on DMX, I built the RD/USB2DMX to bring you the most portable, affordable and reliable DMX interface you can get for only 50€ (+ shipping)!

I want one!

If you want to get one of my RD/USB2DMX interfaces, contact me! Feel free to ask any questions.

List of DMX Controller Software


I ship worldwide through Registered Mail only. The reason for that is that packages are handled by the transport companies with greater care when comparing with the Ordinary Mail service (yes, I’ve already had issues).

  • Portugal: 5 € (usually 2 business days, except islands)
  • Rest of the World: contact me
