OSCulator midiin?


    Dec 14 2007 | 7:21 am
    Sorry to be such a dim brain on this but having ditched aka and moved on to OSCulator to get input from my Wii remote I stuck and cant find any answers t such a basic question.
    Once I have OSCulator connected to my wii and want to work with it in MAX i assume I do this with midiin? But not working with midi much dont understand how to separate out the flow of data from OSCulator.
    By channels? Ports?
    an example would be great.
    Thanks

      I had a go at getting wii into max for the first time this week, - was not able to get it to work with the aka. object, but had little trouble with OSCulator...
      two ways to get the midi CC info (which you use will depend on if you want the controller number before or after the value with right-to-left order):

      open OSCulator 2.2 make sure you also have the Bluetooth Apple System Preference panel open with the 'Devices' Bluetooth control tab showing
      go to OSCulator and start the discovery process this will find the wii but it will fail so go back to the Bluetooth panel in the Apple System Prefs and delete that instance of the bluetooth wii go to the OSCulator and start the discovery process again the wii should be recognized and all should be working finally it takes two times for it to work for some reason
      type in a port number something like 8002 or whatever you want in the box in the upper left hand corner of OSCulator
      all the parameters from the wii should flow into the main window push all the buttons so they show up as well
      pull down on the 'Type' pull down menu and select MIDI CC then go to the 'Event' pull down menu next to it and set the controller to the number you want to send
      for example: set the xyz to ch1 & controllers to 1 2 3 set the pry and accel to ch2 & the contollers to 5 6 7 8 open the Max patch attached below
      this should help get you started:

      Fantastic - that was the missing link I needed - I don't do much with midi so was not familiar with those objects.
      Sam - looks like midiparse gives out tons more data but thats not applicable in the case of wwi is it? Also when you talk about the left right order i dont quite see how that would be used if i use an argument to define each ctlin as per Kims patch?
      Kim not sure why you say to open Blue tooth and delete. Yes it seems OSculator needs two cracks at it but i had just been hitting start discovery again.
      Anyway thanks for the pointers and sorry for the delay in my response had to take the kids to the beach!
      James.

I've been using the IR data from the wii for a project and I think Maxer's are really going to like the new version of OSCulator coming out soon! stay tuned KIM
