Lemur OSC problem

  • Hi all,

    I'm using liine's Lemur iPad app to send OSC to Isadora. I'm using the Pads object in Lemur to create a grid of 8x12 touchpads.  When I use the Stream Setup in Isadora to capture the OSC address from lemur, I get /Pads/x and then '96 values' under the data column. However there doesn't seem any way to differentiate those 96 values (1 for each pad) and the entire matrix triggers on OSC address 1 (as opposed to 1 through 96). 
    Any ideas?
    Many thanks,

    Hi @quarterinchjack your question was duplicated so I deleted the other one and kept this one - just so you don't get answers on both.

    If you click renumber ports then each button will have a channel. It's not obvious at first but once you've done it once it will be easier from there on in. :) 

  • Thanks Skulpture, thanks for the quick response - there is only one port - the OSC message from Lemur seems to have the 96 discreet pad addresses embedded in the one message and there doesn't seem to be a way of expanding that so that Isadora can assign each on a separate OSC port. Image attached.

    Create two OSC listeners, type port 1 in one and 2 in the other, the first two pads (depending on the design of the controller) should come through. Then keep adding OSC listeners.

    Or create 96 of them and then work out which one does which! :)

  • Yeah, tried, that. I have 8 osc listeners set to listen on 1 through 8. Doesn't matter where i touch on the pad array, all 8 trigger at the same time.

    Really strange!

    Hmmm. I think I have the app on my phone - will have a look now.

    I can't even get my Lemur app to talk to my mac sorry!

    I am on OS 10.10.3.... no luck. I will keep trying. 

  • Thanks for persevering! Lemur connection to Izzy on my Mac is fine and pretty straightforward, just the bundling of these separate OSC messages.

    I've done it many many times before which is frustrating. It seems my iPhone wont actually connect to the ad-hoc network that I create on my MacBook pro.

  • Just tried it sending to Osculator and the 96 discreet channels show up straight away. Could it be the way that Isadora receives multiple OSC addresses at the same time?

    OK, see attached screen shots. I am using Lemur ap on my iphone with the Studio Combo for iPhone template. Using the drums tab/page. I get 16 messages when I press any button. 9484d6-screen-shot-2015-07-03-at-14.21.42.png 94f47a-screen-shot-2015-07-03-at-14.23.04.png
