Default Lighting - what are you doing live (or otherwise)?

I'm just curious what folks are doing with lighting if anything at all?

Are you using a hardware DMX controller? or just making do with whatever happens to be at a venue? have own lighting rig? - what kind of fixtures? Any really deep control from software?

In particular, anyone trying to control all you light from within Ableton Live, or perhaps even a midi sequencer like an MPC to a DMX controller?

I have heard of quite a few people using max/msp programs to control lighting from with Live or similar - what are you experiences of this so far?

I currently in the Ableton Live via Midi to DMX controller camp, but slowly moving over to implementing a lighting automation VST plugin (just for our use, no commerical plans) to talk to an external DMX control application that I am wirting for full control of DMX and ILDA lasers from within Live - thats on hold at the moment until I can afford a good RGB laser - about 3.5K - Ugh!

I also slowly fiddling around with designs for some interesting new LED fixtures - again just for our use and my interest - see what kind of cool wierdness I can come up with - I have a background in electronics so may as well put it to good use

So what is everyone else doing? What kind of gear are you using and the pro-cons of it? Do you work with lighting/event contractors etc?
