MIDI transmission from DMXIS?

Post by rickboone » Fri Oct 10, 2014 6:05 am

Dave,
is it possible for DMXIS to "retransmit" MIDI data received? What I would like to happen is for DMXIS to send that data back to my controller (in this case, TouchOSC, controlled via TouchOSC Bridge) so that the faders in TouchOSC receive that feedback and reflect the fader and other control positions in DMXIS.

I think the proper term for this function is "MIDI echo". THis exact function is described in detail in this tutorial below for another product, VDMX…

Is a midi echo really what you want? It sounds like you want DMXIS to send actual status messages for each of it's faders or system controls. This data would, more than likely, be quite different than a simple echo - though I'm pretty sure DMXIS doesn't send any MIDI.

If the echo 'is' what you want, you could do this with something like Bome's Midi Translator (BMT). Simply send the TouchOSC info to BMT, then have BMT take the exact MIDI data and duplicate the send - one to DMXIS and one back to TouchOSC.
