I’m trying to send osc to my fates from touch osc running on my android phone.
I’m a total newbie in what osc does.
So what i’ve done since now:
-Connected fates to my hotspot from phone
-set touch osc like this
-downloaded a couple of touch osc templates from lines (like the cheat codes one or the grid emulation from okyeron)
What next? Should I see something on my fates device list? If so where? Should I see if touch osc is connected to my fates somehow? Nothing seem to happen if I try to control cheat codes
See [cheat codes]: v1.2.2 (April 10, 2020)
Try setting your incoming port (on your phone) to 9000
incoming port on your phone must be
9000 for cheat codes
(there’s probably no need to add/change the ZeroConf Name)
There’s no device list for osc so there’s nothing to “see” about the connection.
This was really useful - thanks; I’d missed this very informative post about Cheat Codes, and while there’s still a lot to get my head around, the Touch OSC layout for Cheat Codes is at least working (unidirectionally to the Norns) from an Android tablet, though with a fair bit of latency.
re: cheat codes connectivity, there’s this extra bit of setup in the manual:
- Open TouchOSC’s “Options” menu and toggle on Bundle Messages + Send Ping, and set Delay to 1s
perhaps that’ll also help reduce the latency + kickstart the bi-directionality? hope this helps!
fwiw, cheat codes 2 is getting an online manual which can be more easily edited (vs.monolithic PDF)
Thanks - the PDF manual was really useful for setting up Touch OSC; I’d set both Bundle Messages and Send Ping with delay @1s and the latency is present. I’ve not had much luck with Touch OSC latency on the Android tablet and Norns so far - I’ll keep trying different settings such as using the Norns as host and sitting right on top of the Wifi router too.
Cheat code is working! And I assume everything else. Now trying to use osc grid!
Note - you will need to change/update the ip source address in the oscgrid load script.
