The SmartFade ML brings moving light control to the Smart Solutions family of products. Built on the strong foundation of SmartFade, the SmartFade ML offers professional moving light controls at a smart price. SmartFade ML can control up to 48 intensity channels on faders and an additional 24 moving lights or DMX-controlled devices like scrollers. With the innovative use of RGB LEDs behind the device select keys, SmartFade ML can display feedback about the state of the console and the color mix of CMY fixtures without the need for an external monitor.

SmartFade ML provides professional features like palettes, parameter “fan” and built-in dynamic effects with an easy-to-learn direct-access style of operation. You even have the ability to patch to two complete universes of DMX512A (1,024 outputs), SmartFade ML gives you all the control you need for smaller rigs.

SmartFade ML’s color-coded backlit keys make it easy to operate in the dark, without requiring additional worklights. The keys and built-in LCD displays also provide status feedback for the rig, without the need for an external monitor. Get smart – get moving, with SmartFade ML moving light control.
