Ok, the problem was all me. It was just how I was sending osc messages. I didn’t realize you needed the /monome/ prefix, but I learned that now that I browsed the source ofserver.c in the serialosc repo. SO serialosc is actually working fine. Apologies for the false alarm!
oscsend localhost 10145 /monome/grid/led/all i 1
oscsend localhost 10145 /monome/grid/led/all i 0
I wonder how the power situation is… did you already ran tests with a large amount of leds on?
To confirm, there are some power issues when running off the Organelle USB Bus power – Only half the LED’s of my 128 light up. However, button presses still work. When using a powered USB hub, all LED’s are lit.
I’ve added some convenience scripts and test patches to my repo.
I have a new video and a new patch if anyone with a Monome + Organelle is interested in playing around. X-posted from the Critter+Guitari forum.
To explain what is happening here – I am using the Organelle as the host for the Monome, and the patch is a step-sequencer based on Grid-Studies with a built-in voice and a delay. The Moog is triggered via MIDI and routed back through the Organelle and I have an FX send so I can control the Delay amount. There is also a super simple internal, polyphonic synth voice that I can mix in and out. I am using the Organelle’s wooden keys to program the arpeggiator notes. I also have multiple parameter pages and presets built into the patch to save/recall settings.
The Organelle runs an Arch Linux OS and Pure Data, and the patch includes an automatic installer script for serialosc. Currently I am only using serialosc-device. The Organelle is a great host for the Monome! So far a great pair, lots of fun. I still haven’t gotten the serialoscd (the daemon) working, but that would be even better.
This looks and sounds really good. I think what keeps a lot of people away from PD (incl. myself) is the very utilitarian look and feel of the software. But the capabilities of Automatonism and it’s integration into the Organelle are highly appealing. Have to learn more.
i couldn’t resist. i was thinking about getting an Organelle for a while since i cut my teeth on pd/Cecilia and Csound on Redhat5 back in the ancient days and then i logged in and saw the recent shenanigans with the Monome and i grabbed one. It will be here friday and i will return to the land of Miller Puckette
The biggest thing keeping me from investing in something like the Organelle is the lack of CV… I have an Axoloti, but I don’t actually use it that much for the same reason. PD is much nicer and more full featured that Axoloti, so the Organelle is more interested stand alone… but if it had 2-4 CV ins and outs it would be a no brainer.
There’s also the Rebel Tech Owl, which runs PD patches with CV… but it lacks the little screen and just feels like having a complex PD patch running might be awkward… less Nord Modular, more PD based effect pedal.
