MULTIFORM Creates a Fountain of Magic

Multiform Lighting were recently contacted by Environetics, suppliers of ‘Magic Fountain’ systems, who were intending to use their MultiPac 4 channel DMX dimmer to control fountain pumps and lighting in their new ‘Solo Mio’ sound activated plus interactive fountain systems.

They chose the MultiPac because of its unique range of facilities including Soft Patch, Multiple Curves, Manual Presets, Programable Preheat, Limiter, Inbuilt Crossfades plus Multiform’s renowned rugged serviceability.


Magic Fountain systems range from a single pump to 18 pump fountains with multi-coloured under water lighting. They are supplied to public authorities, theme parks, special needs schools and also lottery winners.

Unlike simpler sequentially programmed systems, Magic Fountains analyse the music signal electronically, converting this into DMX data which is then used to control fountain height plus animated coloured lighting producing an artistic and entertaining display.

To help create this aesthetically stimulating experience, Multiform’s technical department developed a special version of the firmware used in the MultiPac to provide a customised response curve with linear control of the fountain height.

Video demonstrations of the ‘Solo Mio’ and the other fountain systems can be viewed on their website at:
