Aputures handy and powerful Sidus Link has a new update 1.6 that adds several new features. I like Sidus Link a lot and use it all the time in my tabletop setups. It makes accessing the lights and changing the output and color a breeze.

Music FX

Music FX to our revolutionary suite of Sidus Link Custom FX, the new color Palette tool, and new and improved Diagram Master™ functionality. Music FX™ analyzes any music track and translates it into lighting. You can import the audio from your phone or computer or record the music live. Sidus Link will automatically recognize the beat of the song and program lighting effects to go along with it. Of course, you can manually adjust the BPM and map out different colors and different frequencies to your liking.
