Helios DAC is now supported by Sp*ghetti Laser show software! (funny how that word is still censored on this forum)

In other news, I've sold out the first batch of DACs. :) So currently it is out of stock on my stores, but it is still in stock at Innolasers: https://innolasers.com/shop/index.php?id_product=23&controller=product
New batch is in production and should be ready in some weeks.

Glad I saw this thread got bumped. I still have my sound card based DAC that I got from PL but getting it to work was always a bit tricky. What's the software of choice to use with it? I'd like something Mac based but I can dust off my old windows box if need be. I do have a copy of that pasta software but I'd need one of those USB dongles if he even still sells them. The PJ I'd be using it on isn't anything fancy just one of those half watt Reke that were popular several years back.

with Maxwell and the Helios DAC you will be fiddling knobs quickly...

Yeah. IIRC it wasn't a traditional GB but there was a special coupon code or something that gave us a decent deal. It does have the DB-25 ILDA (and DMX) connector on the back. I even made an adapter to defeat the dagnabbed internlock on it.
