Titan Software- Reason why AVOLITES is a big compititor to Grand Ma
Titan is a software that can control all the functionality of a lighting board or console. All the modern day lighting consoles are based on modern PC hardware and run on this control software. Following the introduction Titan, Avolites has premeditated a range of lighting boards explicitly to run the software, including the Titan One USB DMX dongle, Titan Mobile, Tiger Touch and Sapphire Touch consoles. All the above mentioned software were introduced amid 2009 and 2012. Even though the conventional hardware lighting consoles were widely sold and updated in phases during the 2000s, the corporation progressively switched to software development towards the Windows OS running on conventional PC motherboards. This change endorsed the company to re-write its lighting control software, resulting in the release of the Titan software series in the late 2000s. The new V10 software was extremely powerful which makes Avolite superior to Grand Ma. You can download the software from the official website of Avolites or buy a console from them directly as well as rent those consoles from EventStarts.com website.
