  • June 16th — Lead time on shipping Gadget II (including ETCnomad Education Edition with Gadget II) is estimated at 24 weeks *.  Unfortunately, ETC is not currently accepting orders for any product that includes the Gadget II.

    The primary cause of this longer than normal lead time is a critical "brain" chip which interfaces the circuit board to other devices.  When ETC noticed supply issues earlier this year, they tested similar chips as a drop-in replacement (no success), and started a redesign process on moving to an entirely new chip.  Despite shipping products at near-2019 levels, supply of the old "brain" chip continues to outstrip demand, which in turn has increased lead times.
  • * Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update.  Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
  • Some alternate ideas while we wait for the Gadget II to return to production:
    • Education Edition A non-Gadget, USB-Key-Only version is available at a reduced price.  If you need DMX output, pair with one of the options below.
    • Gadget II While we've heard reports of 3rd-party USB-to-DMX adapters working, we don't expect these to officially be supported.
    • DMX Outputs Instead of a USB-to-DMX adapter, use a network Gateway to output DMX.  We offer a number of sACN Gateways, add a simple PoE switch and network setup (we can help) to create a modular lighting network.

Hopping from gig to gig and can't bring your console with you?  Doing the lighting in a venue whose desk has seen better days?  That's where ETCnomad control comes in.  Small enough to fit on your keychain, ETCnomad plugs into your computer and opens up the power of Eos & Hog 4 PC software, so you can program and run shows anywhere.

ETCnomad can serve as a primary controller, a backup, or a client device - or work offline entirely - operating on either a PC platform running Microsoft Windows 7 or higher, or natively on macOS Mojave or later.  Available in either a base or unlocked version, the base unit supports 1024 outputs¹ while the unlocked version supports 6144.

ETCnomad Features

  • 2 or 12 DMX universes¹
  • Computer-based lighting control software, USB key allows output from Eos or Hog 4 PC software on your computer
  • Output DMX via Ethernet (sACN/Net3/ArtNet), or optional Gadget USB to DMX Interface
  • Works with Programming Wings, Fader Wings (Universal Wings are PC only), and OSC Controllers²
  • Supports iRFR, aRFR, Net3 Show Control and I/O Gateways
  • Up to three fader wings may be used
  • See datasheet for minimum hardware requirements.  Eos generally works with Windows 7 or higher, and macOS Mojave or later.  Hog 4 PC supports Windows 10 only.
  • ¹ Starting in Eos v2.9 and Hog 4 PC v3.12.  Earlier versions of Eos only unlock 1 universe at base level. Earlier versions of Hog 4 PC not compatible.
  • ² Hog 4 PC only supports OSC/MIDI controllers when using fully unlocked (6K/12-universe) ETCnomad Dongle, or with Hog Wings.

Eos Family Features

  • Approachable yet powerful syntax for programmers of every level
  • Award-winning color controls, including six Color Pickers and a Gel Picker for color mixing.
  • Custom-design your control interface using Magic Sheets, with topographical or abstract layouts.  Full interaction with the command line allows command instructions - from the simplest and most immediate to the most complex - accessed from a mouse or single- or multi-touch displays.
  • Augment3d 3D programming and visualization environment²
  • Virtual Media Server function for pixel-mapping
  • Timecode and automation integration

  • ³ The Element 2 does not support Multiple Cue Lists or more than one active playback.  Additionally, fader wings are not supported.
  • ⁴ PC requires Windows 7 or higher. Mac requires macOS Mojave or later.  The ETCnomad software is free for offline programming or "mirror mode", but requires a USB Key to act as a client.
  • ⁵ The software is still limited by the number of DMX universes/outputs, thus you may not be able to use all these channels.
