For Squnto's 2018 'Strikes Back' 40 stop US bus tour, I created a completely automated lighting and visual control system. With a cologin/mplex system architecture spanning Ableton, Resolume, Max, JACK, and multiple instances of TouchDesigner, the system allowed Squnto's lighting and visuals to reflect the songs being mixed on stage. Extracted musical data controlling macro parameters of lighting in custom systems running at 240 FPS combined with custom calibration methods allowed the lighting to be controlled with sub 5 millisecond accuracy in concert. On the largest stops, custom TouchDesigner systems with Etherdream DACs were used to also control lasers with the same level of timing accuracy.
