Question about SurfaceLCD

Postby iPad_User » 09 Jan 2012 17:01

Hey out there,

I want to use the Lemur-App on my iPad for controlling Brainspawn Forte.
I'm wondering, if it's possible, to see the names of my channels / racks I have in forte in a surfaceLCD in Lemur.
What kind of informations does the surfaceLCD needs to show those parameters?

Thanks,
Chris

As far as I know the surface LCD is tightly coupled to the Mackie protocol (correct me if I'm wrong).
The surface LCD is update by SYSEX data sent from the host.
If Forte can be controlled by a Mackie Control there is a good chance that Lemur can too.

I just tried it, but the tracknames are not displayed.

Maybe it's better to ask the guys in the forte-forum. :)

Thanks, anyway!

Which template did you use?
Did the faders work?
If they did and you're not seeing track names it could be that your midi-port is not transferring SYSEX messages. What midi interface are you using?

Hey,

I used the template from the User Library on Liine.
The Faders did work, but I don't use a midi interface. It works via ad hoc network and midi yoke. Maybe thats the problem?!

Midi Yoke works fine when connecting from Cubase to Lemur (Over the Mackie protocol) displaying the track names as far as I've tested.
You could try to monitor midi messages to see if any SYSEX data is sent from Forte to the Lemur.

Hey,

I checked with midiox. Forte just sends Note ON and Pitch-Bend, no SYSEX.
Hm, I will ask the guys in brainspawn forum.

Thanks!

I've got the confirmation, that forte does not support, what I want to do....

I added to their wishlist...

Thanks anyway!

Another thing: I'm not really familiar with programming code. So is there a site with a few examples so that I see, whats possible with lemur?
I downloaded the MachineDrum-Map from the forum and did not know, that it is possible, to create a scrollbar, which is really helpful!
