This would be a game-changer. you could have a lighting player with automation for each dmx channel and fire off light sequences in time with the show tempo (depending on if they add tempo mapping to the show page, Surprised that and automation wasn't even included).

Automation would be a natural development for Show. Not only for the DMX. Running DMX on Ableton, works great. But with migrating over to Show for my keys I will have the syncproblem between systems.

I agree. This is a MUST. I suggest a new track type, a DMX track, that should be available on the arrangement view just like any other track (and not only in show page). This way you could design and arrange your light's performance while you compose your song - and make the whole show even more synergic - and then, of course, you will use those DMX tracks you worked on in the show page! It can start with a simple DMX sequencer where you can send commands to a single DMX universe (512 channels) usign standard USB to DMX interfaces, such as the Enttec DMX USB Pro AND compatibles. Please add that great feature!
