MIDI to DMX Utility

Post by Codeweasel »

Dear All,

As mentioned elsewhere in this forum, I have been writing a Windows utility that will allow the direct control of DMX channels from MIDI notes. This extends the idea of the 24 MIDI to DMX channels feature inside of Freestyler and should allow the user to assign any of 512 DMX channels to any of 127 MIDI notes.

Please note and apologies - One big shortcoming so far is that I only have a 'uDMX' interface, so this application is currently limited to working with that until or unless someone can help me out with others (software/API/drivers or indeed hardware)

I attach a .zip file below with the setup file and a user guide inside.

Feel free to let me know any feedback

Thanks

Graham (Codeweasel)

Hi,

This is exactly what I was looking for, unfortunately I have an Enttec USB Pro interface.
You can find the API for this interface here : https://dol2kh495zr52.cloudfront.net/pd ... i_spec.pdf
+ demo files : http://www.enttec.com/download/pro_example_v2.zip
The Windows drivers : http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM20828_Setup.exe
and if you need anything else there's a download section on the product page : https://www.enttec.com/eu/products/cont ... x-usb-pro/

Can you look into it please ?

Would you be willing to share source for this?


I am trying to build a theatrical interface that uses the uDMX, but I am not much of a programmer. Being able to see code behind the working example would be very helpful.

Great. I'll try it!
I'm a .net developer and seems that you are using .net framework.
Maybe I can help you to improve this application

Sorry All,

I totally forgot I had uploaded this and have moved on to using Freestyler in a little more depth for my band's needs.

I did once look into the Enttec drivers stuff, but not having an interface to try, it was all a bit confusing for me.

I will however, happily share the source code for the utility. I will post it when I find it (on my home machine).

Graham.

Found it...

Do with it as you please, but be aware of my disclaimer that I accept no responsibility for this code or anything anyone comes up with as a result of editing it.

Cheers

May i suggest you use the sendmessage api to control the output directly though freestyler, you can have direct acces to all 1024 channels if required, this will make your application interface netural and still alow FS to control other channels not being consumed by your midi app.
