I’m also interested in any hints for DMX lights automation with LP-16 thru midi.

Would MIDI-DMX converter (without controller) be sufficient for automation?
How would programming procedure look in following chain LP-16 => MIDI-DMX converter => DMX Lights?
I assume using midi keyboard/controller in DAW of choice with lights hooked to converter could be used for automation/midi file creation in realtime, but is it practical in real world? Is there any software that could be used for midi creation for purpose of lighting which could be loaded to LP-16?
It’s all new world to me, any advice would be greatly appreciated
Many thanks
