Compulite Vibe tour in Japan and Spain

The Story of the Story is a co-production of Het Zuidelijk Toneel and Theater Artemis, directed by Jetse Batelaan. It’s a show about... well, what IS it about? Hats off to you if you can tell us what happens! This show is Weird with a capital W. And Strange with a capital S. But also Exciting with a capital E. 


Stan Bannier Stage manager: "after a tour through the Netherlands, we decided to tell the Story beyond the borders. We kicked-off our international adventures in Venice, where we opened the Biennale Teatro and Jetse Batelaan received the Silver Lion. Batelaan is the first-ever theatre maker for young audiences and Dutch national to receive the prestigious award. The Story continued its international journey to Japan (Aichi Triennale, Nagoya) and Barcelona (Fundació Teatre Lliure). Tom IJpelaar, lighting engineer, used the Vibe (from SEW) in Japan and the Vibe M (from EARpro) in Spain to control over 70 fixtures." 




Stan continues: "it’s unbelievable how Compulite-users all over the world get so much support from distributors and the factory. We’ve had a blast with the shows and on the Vibe console with the help of SEW in Japan and Earpro in Spain. At any time the Compulite team can remotely connect to the console and give an online support. I’ve updated the console to a new software version that just got released and have installed a new VC-tester on it, so I could see what my outputting per parameter was, it's amazing how easy it is and how nice, fast and understandable the workflow is on it!"



Aviv Shukrun (CTO): "the Compulite Vibe and Vibe M consoles are a totally fresh concept in the new lighting control. We developed a system to cater to the performances and complex needs of today’s lighting professionals. Beside of the system capabilities, we targeted the customers services support to be part of nowadays networking technology by being able to connect remotely to the Vibe console and give an immediate service online at any time and in any location around the globe. The Compulite Vibe consoles are suitable and serving many venues from Theaters, Television, Production Performances where simplicity, flexibility and programing time is essential."

C-NET Manager Version 1.8.0

Compulite is happy to announce the release of the new C-NET Manager Version 1.8.0



This version supports the new E-Sync type







The Compulite Team



A new show, "Het Verhaal van het Verhaal" ("The Story of The Story") directed by Jetse Batelaan for Theater Artemis and Het Zuidelijk Toneel,

has the Netherlands buzzing and even more so, a critical part of the production team who have called themselves, "The Vibe Tribe."


In this comical and philosophical theatrical production, stage manager, Stan Bannierworking together with lighting designer, Theun Mosk 

and lighting engineer, Emile van Gils, used Compulite's Vibe, our newest line of lighting consoles, and were not disappointed.


“When we started looking for a new lighting console (or platform) a couple of years ago we saw the first Vibe,

the one with only a touchscreen. We tried it live on a show in the Netherlands and thought the innovative

form of no syntax and the drag and drop items were awesome. After that, we didn't hear enough about it, 

so maybe it was too early to try to be that innovative.


Two years ago we started searching again for a new lighting console. We tried all consoles and after some

research we went for a visit at Compulite's headquarter. The visit made us realize there was something new

in the making. The three days of working on the console gave us confidence, even when the software was

in it's early stages. When we came back home we decided to keep our Compulite Vector consoles and run

with both the Vectors and the Vibe as new, future-stable platforms.


The first Vibe arrived after the show in Frankfurth and we started playing around with it because that is what

it is, it's truly playful! It is fun to see how things are put together and how the console tries to help you out if

you don't know what to do! We decided to put it to the test on some live shows. First a couple of small ones 

in a festival in Belgium and now we are  touring with the full size Vibe on the show “Het Verhaal van het

Verhaal” and it's working out! Reactions through-out the country are enthusiastic and the help and support

from Compulite is fast and great!"


-       Stan Bannier (Stage Manager)



For the show, the lighting team used The Vibe console to control 30 conventional lights, 8 GLP Impression 4L, 2 Robe DL7S, 8 Chauvet PARhex 12,

and 6 ETC luster. In addition, Compulite's Eport-41was used for the outputs and Compulite's Vector PC was also used to control the scenery.


The lighting team was extremely happy with their experience in using our newest line of lighting consoles.


"After working with Compulite's Vector for several years, we started searching for a next-gen console. We

contacted Compulite after we saw they were working on a new console and we were invited to visit the

Compulite headquarter! This was my first hands-on on the Vibe, and from the start I really liked the way

of working and thinking with the console. I think it is a very accessible console for every type of operator.

The first show we did was at a Belgian theater festival, from the beginning it was working so quick! Last

September, I programmed the first big show using the Vibe console, and from the start everything was

working as it should. My experience is that the Vibe is a very quick and smart console, I think everybody

can startup a Vibe and patch and program a show, it's very inventive! Also the support from Compulite is

great! Many new versions and inventive new functions, it’s only getting better!"


-       Emile van Gils (Light Engineer)



"After working with engineers with different lighting consoles, Stan and Emile told me we're gonna work

with a new desk, The Compulite Vibe. I said it was a good idea, there has to be time to learn new material.

When we started I found out Emile was working really fast on this new console. I didn't have to wait when

he was programming, what I wanted him to produce was directly put on the console in a cue-list. The only

minor issue, was that it has a big screen with a lot of light, and as a designer you don't want to see the 

back-light, so we asked Compulite if we could dim the screen and that was no problem"

The Indiegeno Fest is an exciting annual music festival with nationally known artists who perform independent music, organized by Leave Music. 

After the success of the last four festivals Leave Music decided to hold the 2018 Indiegeno Fest between August 3rd and August 9th at the Tyrrhenian coast of Northern Sicily,

between the beaches of Patti and the Greek Theater in Tindari.



Messina Audio Service provided the audio-visual system for this special festival, with Giovanni Privitera Jr. working as the Lighting Operator. 

The lighting set for Indiegeno Fest 2018 was controlled by Compulite's Vector Ultra Violet and included: 8 Ruby ProLights, 6 Diamond19 ProLights, 8 BeamZ MHLs,

19x15 Led Wash, 16 Electron Par Leds and 2 Robe Haze 500s.

Messina Audio Service regularly uses Compulite Vector Ultra Violet and Vector Wing with two Spark4Ds, purchased from Spotlight; Compulite's official distributor in Italy.

These dependable consoles are used to illuminate many other performances including Billy Cobham, Mike Stern, Bombino, Roccella Jazz, Taormina Arte,

the meeting with The Dalai Lama in Taormina and more.


"Donnschtig Jass" is a 7 week travelling entertainment program in Switzerland, organized by Swiss broadcasting company SRF and Technology and Production Center TPC

The program is based on Jass; a two-handed card game played with a pack of 32 cards in which points are scored by melding certain combinations.

The program's goal is to travel across Switzerland, giving preference to smaller communities that have beautiful village squares. During the Jass games

two communities compete against each other and the winning community serves as the venue of the next program.


Each of these exciting Jass competitions is linked to some local festivities with music performances by well know artists.

The music performed is usually colorful and vibrant, bringing in audiences from all across the region. This unique 7 week program called for a unique lighting console.


After careful consideration, experienced Lighting Designer and Operator Matthias Kern, of TPC switzerland AG, chose the state of the art Vibe console to control 170 fixtures

used in the program using Compulite's VC Protocol and Artnet Protocol. A Hippotizer V4 Media Server was also used in the show as well as Compulite's ePort-8.   

TPC switzerland AG is responsible for production and technology for television, radio and multimeda for SRF (Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen).


Matthias Kern: "Vibe is very intuitive, easy and quick to use. Many of the parameters can be processed with just a few clicks; it simplifies much of what is usually rather difficult to do." 



The Vibe family is an advanced line of intuitive and flexible lighting control consoles. 

These consoles utilize multi-touch screen technology and provide lighting operators with a virtually unlimited number of touch controller buttons and faders. 

Using a keypad and motorized faders for fast fixture selection and control, they enable quick access and are very powerful.
