Im know reading for 2 Days in this wonderful Forum about midibox_LC and i can't find out what the right stuff is to get for my own Idea.
There is a Guy Named kdiamond who wanted to do the same but far bigger thing then I'm looking for. Described on this Topic: advanced hardware controller
He actualy wanted the same solution as i do. - To control SAC (softwareaudioconsole) with some thing more handy than a PC - mouse.
Looking through the LC Pages i found this chart: MC_protocol which contains SAW Studio commands. SAW Studio is the Daddy of SAC made by the same company (RML Labs) and has the almost same Midi commands, of corse with al the Time based stuff i don't need because - I'm al the time Live...
So first of al i wold like to get Hardware with witch i can slowly increase the task.
I red about the LC witch is made up on the Core of an PIC. But i also red about that: Upcoming MBHP mf ng module
Know I'm confused.
If i whant to get started with 1Fader, 1Rotary, 2 Buttons and maybe a little Display. What is the best to Buy? -What Core is "up to Date and expandable"?
considering that i what to continue after getting that done to a Controller that has: 1 Fader, 11 Rotary, 25 Buttons, 1 Display and is extendable with more Fadermodules...
I wold also like the idea of getting it plugged in my PC by one USB Cable...
The Inventor of SAC is Programing a new Version (on work since 2011) with controlling functions over TCP/IP... Maybe it wold be good to be upgradeable...
The mc_protocol_mappings chart does not contain al the needed controlls of SAC. (i wold want to get access to the Dynamics as well...)
if i sniff those commands, am i able to get those in to that software package?
Well at al i can say I'm very interested in that uCApps Project. Im from Switzerland and working for about 8 Jears in Pro Audio Projects as Installer and Live engineer. I made my apprenticeship as a Multimedia electronics technician before so, i know enough about Circuits but hardly anything about real programming.
Its time to get in that know...
