For our student ministry services; I also serve as the primary lighting and video designer. Every week I design and program at least four worship songs for lighting and video, using a GrandMA2 lighting console and Arkaos Media Server. We also use Ableton as our primary method of playback for loop and click tracks - but also SMPTE. SMPTE is received by the lighting console and is not only used to trigger lighting and video changes; but also sends midi commands to ProPresenter to trigger lyric slides in sync with the tracks.
