Hi, we discovered free way to send out MIDI/MSC from Watchout via Bitfocus Companion and the module Midi-relay. Midi-relay is a small java app which sends/receives MSC/notes from your midi-interface by getting http requests. For every command there is a button to program in companion, plus sending a String output http request "BANK-PRESS" from WO to trigger that button. It works flawlessly and being able to trigger sound and light is a big step. The detour over companion is quite time consuming, a direct string output would be nice. So far I had no luck sending a POST http-request wi
Hi everyone, I'm programming a theater show that is largely controlled by external timecode coming from our sound playback system. There are gaps in the timecode which pull us around to different sections of the main timeline. All of that works well. In a few instances when timecode is suspended, we are also taking MSC cues from a GrandMA light board, also in the main timeline. Timecode must not be running for the MSC commands to take. There are two MSC cues that we'd like to place while timecode IS still running. We could make these short cues auxiliary timelines, but it see
In the past, we've always had great luck triggering the main timeline using MSC from our ETC Ion (and before it our Obsession). On this show, I had an element that needed to be triggered on cue, while the rest of the timeline was still running. My solution to this withing Watchout was simply to put this extra element in an Aux Timeline. That's when I started to run into problems with the midi. If I set my "Midi Playlist" setting to "ignore", nothing happens. If I set it to "Map to Main Timeline" I can't trigger the aux timeline. If I set it to "Map to Aux Timelines" I can't trigger the m
