The first full-fledged lighting controller in a foot bar

Program a light show and control it by foot later – that’s now possible with the foot controller, Bigfoot, by Eurolite. Bigfoot is a full-fledged lighting controller, packed in a foot bar.

While most foot controllers are mainly designed for playing pre-installed effects, Bigfoot goes one step further, it enables creative light shows to be programmed and controlled by foot. Up to 12 devices with 16 DMX channels each can be operated at the same time, from PAR spots to moving heads.

Pre-programmed colour and movement effects make programming shows easier. Up to 15 chases with several steps can be saved and combined to a show in live operation mode.

The Bigfoot is divided into two sections. Above the handle is the programming section with potentiometers and buttons. Below the handle, which also serves as impact protection for the potentiometers, is the live section. It consists of six robust foot switches and two big pedals. The switches are the same as used for guitar effects. The user controls the speed, chooses and starts a program, uses the blackout function or activates the sound control mode.

The pedals control the fading time of the scenes as well as the master dimmer function for the brightness. If desired, the latter can also be used for controlling other functions or devices like a fog machine.

The two displays guide through the programming and making it easier to use by presenting the names of shows, their speed, etc. in live operation mode.

Made of stable metal, Bigfoot withstands knocks and kicks. Thanks to the big handle, it can also be carried very easily. An optional case protects the controller during transport and provides for a secure position during operation.
