The 50 cm bar fits in your hand luggage. No need to check them in when flying. Sixteen 50 cm bars are lighter than 4 kg!


Thanks to their aluminum design, LED by garageCube is lightweight and solid. Attach them to your brackets with simple M4 fixing screws.


The bracket system was designed for the LEDs to allow assembly in multiple positions and orientations. Two mounting brackets per LED strut are included in each kit.



Our system is also compatible with standard fastening elements available on the market either directly on the profile adapted for hex head screws or on our bracket mounting system.


The system has also been developed to realize complex structures combining 3D printing or other tailored fabrication techniques, making any of your DIY creations possible.


For manufacturing, we benefit from the experience of our Chinese partner, with whom we have been working for many years on the production of custom-made LEDs. Electronic parts are tested through several quality controls to ensure optimal quality.

DMX Interfaces (ChamSys)

MagicDMX is a low cost, single universe USB DMX interface created by ChamSys which contains an on board processor to process the DMX packets. MagicDMX connects to MagicQ running under Windows, Mac or Linux.

It doesn’t use any special drivers for the device, so you can just plug and play.  MagicDMX defaults to outputing on Universe 1 from the MagicQ software but can be used on any universe.

MagicDMX has electrical protection for normal usage.  Users requiring full isolation should consider the MagicQ Twin DMX Interface, the SnakeSys B4 or any of the MagicQ Wing products.

The MagicDMX interfaces do not unlock the restricted features of MagicQ software such as remote control via iOS/Android, audio input and full screen execute window or the « demo mode banner ». Users requring these features will need a ChamSys interface such as Twin DMX Interface, Mini Wing, PC Wing Compact or SnakeSys interface.




The MagicDMX Basic interface is aimed at users wishing to evaluate and learn MagicQ, technicians wishing to test fixtures, as well as students wishing to learn lighting in schools and colleges. MagicDMX Basic supports output of a full DMX universe via a 3 pin female XLR connector.

MagicDMX Basic is time limited to 5 hours continuous usage. After this time it is necessary to replug the device and to restart the MagicQ software.

The MagicDMX Full interface is aimed at Professional users wishing to have uninterrupted DMX lighting control for shows and installations. The MagicDMX Full provides a great lighting troubleshooting system.

It can be configured to either output or input a single universe of DMX, but unlike the MagicDMX Basic interface, MagicDMX Full is not time limited and can be used continuously.

MagicDMX Full outputs DMX via a 5 pin female XLR connector. If you want to use the MagicDMX interface in DMX input mode a gender reverser is required.
