With it you can layout your display visually then assign effects to the various items throughout your sequence. This can be in time to music (with beat-tracking built into xLights) or just however you like. xLights runs on Windows, macOS and Linux.

For more information see the xLights User Manual or the wiki.

xLights was created in 2010 by Matt Brown. Matt, a LOR user, wanted a show player that would have low system requirements and high performance. The original xLights was “only” a scheduler/player. It had sophisticated playlists, ability to play videos, mp3 and wav files. Matt created a process to support Renard, Pixelnet, E1.31 (Sacn), LOR, DMX and Open DMX controllers There was a built in CONVERT tab to change LOR lms files into xLight XSEQ files. xLights has been a reliable player used by hundreds of Christmas Light enthusiasts.

What's New:
