I use both the pixel king and cyber commander simultaneously to adjust my speedlites and Einsteins indepedently. Works great!

Canon- 5D II x2 | 70D | 8-15mm f4L Fisheye | 16-35mm f/2.8L II | 24-70mm f/2.8L II | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II | 24mm f/1.4L II | 35mm f/1.4L | 50mm f/1.2L | 85mm f/1.2L II |100mm f/2.8L IS Macro | 600EX-RT x3 | 580EX II | ST-E3 RT | EOS M w/22mm Lens | Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 | Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 | GH4

This seems like a great wireless flash setup:
Pixel King TTL + YN565EX

Using Pixel King with Canon 5D Mark III instead of ST-E3-RT and 600EX-RT

As you already have Alien Bees, check out the Paul C Buff system.

I use 4 PCB Einsteins which I control remotely with Cyber Commander and Cyber Sync hardware. The Cyber Commander gives full control over PCB lights, and a degree of control over non-PCB lights, including speedlights. The CC can control up to 16 lights. If you end up expanding on your Alien Bees and pick up a couple of Einsteins, you'll be a happy camper. They're brilliant... and about the price of a pre-owned 580exII. Amazing.

I'm not sure if the 430ex or 580ex have external plugs to accept the likes of radio receivers but the 580exII does. Someone may correct me on this.

Paul,
I just purchased 2 Einsteins, CC and the CyberSync transmitters and cannot get them to fire when pressing the shutter release on my camera. They do test fire with the CC. I am shooting with a Canon 6d, which has no PC synced port, so I have the CC on the hotshoe. Is there something I need to setup on the camera flash setting? Baffled in Boulder!
cheers,
dawg

Get the YN 600EX-RT ($124) as the master and the YNE3-RX ($45) as receivers for the Alien Bees.
I have a couple of the YN-600EX-RT and I am very happy with them.
