MagicQ Rack Mount Dongle MagicQ Rack Mount Dongle

MagicQ Rack Mount Dongle is a USB Dongle that unlocks restricted features in MagicQ Software and MagicHD Media Player.It is most often used when the system is going into a rack mount computer and will not be including other ChamSys products.

MagicQ Software is unlocked from Demo Mode enabling the restricted features in MagicQ are unlocked when connected to a MagicQ Wing or MagicQ USB Interface (not MagicDMX).

The MagicQ Rack Mount dongle performs the same role, and it also unlocks MagicQ PC to use USB-MIDI devices.

The Rack Mount Dongle is the same price as the MagicQ Dual DMX Interface, but where the Dongle is small and fits in a rack mounted computer easily, the Dual DMX Interface does not. The Dual DMX Interface however provide two output ports, so customers may find that this a more cost effective solution in some cases.

USB MIDI support includes support for both 3rd party USB and virtual interfaces allowing MIDI timecode, MIDI notes and LTC timecode input to MagicQ when the Rack Mount dongle is connected to a MagicQ PC system. Note that triggering of Playbacks via USB MIDI is limited to the first 10 playbacks of MagicQ.
