IngeniusPro came about when I was doing a lot of 'busking' on a Strand 520i console. I already had a macro tablet, but I needed more faders! So, with the help of local lighting designer David Ashton, I started playing around with sending supported ASCII
into the console's serial port, mainly with the idea of gaining 'virtual' faders and a couple of days later we had a working prototype.
Over the course of the past eight or nine months, the software has progressed into what we now consider a very useful package. David has been using it to plot shows, instead of taking a remote 300-console to the venues, and I have been using it as an extension to our 520i.
