Learn Stage Lighting Podcast Episode # 90

In today’s episode, we have our Q + A Tuesday! We have some exciting lighting news announcements and then we will be answering your questions.

As some of you may know, I will often share Amazon affiliate links to products I recommend. Today’s sponsor of the show is Learn Stage Lighting on Amazon! It doesn’t cost you any extra but if you want to use that link it will help give me a little kickback for recommending items to you.

Lighting News (4:10)

Speaking of free stuff, we just heard about ENTTEC’s Elm being offered for free. WHAT??!! Yes! ENTTEC is offering a FREE ELM license bundled with every purchase of an ENTTEC pixel controller.

You can read more about this offer here: Free ENTTEC ELM Licenses with Pixel Controllers.
