I’ve just uploaded this in the files section
Its a template for controlling OT with the new version of touchOSC (which is excellent btw!). Its complete but I will add to it from time to time as there are tweaks and features I already have in mind.
Things you will need:
An iPad capable of running TouchOSC NG
A camera connection kit adapter
A class compliant USB MIDI interface
The new version of touchOSC for your iOS device.
The template mostly assumes default settings on Octatrack, except the auto channel needs to be set to 15. You will need to add the template to touchOSC using filesharing, MIDI in & out should be connected to the OT, and of course the USB/CCK should be connected to the iPad.
Once everything is connected, load the template and check you have 2 way communication by twiddling a knob onscreen & on the OT. If you don’t then check your settings, OT using MIDI channels 1-8 for each of its tracks respectively, auto channel to 15, cc in and out enabled, audio note in enabled. Once you are on your desired pattern on OT, press sync on the template to get the current settings from OT. Now you should be good to go! Press sync at any time to update the settings.
Some limitations: I was going to do some fancy value scaling to reflect the actual onscreen values on OT, but quickly realised that the template has no way of knowing what Machines or Effects are loaded on each track. For now, the settings are displayed as absolute MIDI values. Also, the OT does not send out the values from all its MIDI tracks with a single command, I could add pages for the MIDI tracks, but every parameter would have to be synced by hand each time you load up or switch pattern.
I’ll be adding a scenes page next, and have a few ideas for tweaks that need to be made
I’d also be interested to know how well the template scales on newer devices with higher resolution screens, at the moment I have no way of knowing.
