Open Lighting Architecture
On start-up, Open Lighting Console will launched olad if not already running.
To configure OLA, use the web interface on http://localhost:9090 while olad is running.
Configure your controllers with:
- MIDI Notes for buttons
- MIDI Control Changes for knobs and controllers
- MIDI Control Changes or MIDI Pitchwheel for faders
Default MIDI mapping is Makie Control mode, controllers configured in this way are supported directly.
Open olc MIDI settings, activate controller(s) in MIDI In and choose the rotatives mode used by controller.
- Relative1: Infinite rotative. Values from 0 to 64 in one direction, from 127 to 65 in the other.
- Relative2: Infinite rotative. Values from 65 to 127 in one direction, from 63 to 0 in the other.
- Relative3 (Makie): Infinite rotative. Values from 0 to 64 in one direction, from 65 to 127 in the other.
- Absolute: Non infinite rotative. Values from 0 to 127. Caution, doesn’t work for virtual console wheel.
All rotative on a controller must be configured in the same mode
Activate controller(s) in MIDI Out for MIDI feedback (motorized faders, LED, …)
- Open Virtual Console, toggle MIDI button to be in learning mode.
- In Learning mode, select an object (Go for example) and push a button on one of your controllers
- You can learn as many object you want (buttons, faders)
- Toggle MIDI button to quit learning mode
- Play with buttons and faders on your controllers
MIDI mapping is save in ASCII files.
Open Sound Control
By default olc listen on port 7000 and send infos to IP address 10.0.0.3, port 9000.
