I don't know where to post this question other than here, if there's a better SE for this question please let me know.
I'm wondering what software/hardware I would need to automatically sync DMX lighting to music as it's playing. I would be running the show from my Mac (I have Parallels so Windows software is still an option), and I'd like to be able to play music from iTunes if possible.
Ideally, I would start a playlist in iTunes (or whatever music player I need to use to make this work) and the software/hardware I'm looking for will analyze the song playing and control my DMX lighting in such a way to sync it to the music.
Is this even possible? If so what do I need?
EDIT: It would be really nice to have a stereo lighting setup, where each side of the room matches the corresponding side of the audio stream, but that's not a huge deal if it can't be done.
