Anyone want an android OSC project?

Postby ssj71 » Thu Oct 23, 2014 5:51 am

I just spent a few hours investigating controlling a synth through OSC on my android device. I was getting pretty excited about control: http://charlie-roberts.com/Control/
It sounds like exactly the right thing, powerful, customizable, extensible through scripting, etc.. The default layouts are a little buggy, but I can define my own with some scripting to even emulate a pitch wheel that returns to 0 when released.
Except I can't. As soon as I added my custom layout it seemed to bring out more bugs, I could no longer switch between layouts etc.

It is an open source project. I was really considering it but after looking a little at the source it only emphasizes to myself how little I know about android and java development in general. I haven't even gotten to start trying to connect it to anything yet, but until it gets cleaned up a bit I'm not going to worry about it. All of the "free" OSC apps in the android market haven't been updated for a few years, but this one is open so I had some more hope. It doesn't have to be abandonware...

I guess this is just a shout into the darkness hoping someone might be able to help. :\

Update: After a few hours of sleep I started over from scratch and now have at least a workable solution. It still would be great to see this cleaned up a little for android, but I can get by. I'll be posting a tutorial on my blog as soon as I've got it fully running.

I always wanted to do a OSC control app for Carla in mobile (with an alternative interface), but I'm usually busy with other stuff and learning a new language + APIs sounds very time consuming...

If this is going to opensource I'd love to add a Carla support option at some later time.

The mobile app already is open source. MIT license.

I'm going to try to try to write my own python app to bridge osc to midi. Or would it be better to have it done in c? Considering my inexperience with python it might be just as quick. (Oh and it will of course be open source).
