MagicQ PC is described as 'computer software based on the software found on professional MagicQ Lighting Consoles'. There are four alternatives to MagicQ PC for Windows, Linux, Mac and Raspberry Pi. The best alternative is QLC+, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like MagicQ PC are DMXControl (Free, Open Source), Cuelux (Paid) and Onyx by Obsidian Control (Freemium).
Modern lighting offers fantastic possibilities, however, this also requires a powerful and intelligent control system. DMXControl permits you to maximise this potential without the need to spend a lot of money.
Cuelux is a DMX 512 lighting controller for intelligent lights, LED, dimmers, lasers and various other effects. The programme is platform-independent and available on Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux.
ONYX is envisioned for creative professionals and new beginners alike. It scales from the smallest shows to the largest touring productions with easy-to-use tools and optimized graphical work environments that can adapt to any task and complexity.
