String output for MSC Midi

Recommended Posts

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 with WO:

MIDI-relay is running on WO-production, 127.0.0.1 port 4000

 {
 midiport: 'MIDI Port Name',
 midicommand: 'msc',
 deviceid: 0,
 commandformat: 'lighting.general',
 command: 'go',
 cue: '10',
 cuelist: '13',
 cuepath: ''
 }

So the string from WO would be:

POST {...} $0D

I tried monitoring with wireshark to see what the syntax in WO should be but did not get clear results. Is it possible to send a .json method as a string output at all?

I was looking into the the bome-box / network before, but there is no way to send commands from WO production, as serial output is only available on a display PC or with a TCP/serial converter. Or am I getting sth wrong?

I see there's a "UDP/TCP Generic module" as well for Companion. Assuming this module can receive data (to trigger commands or "stacks" in Companion) you should be able to use that one, as WO can send TCP and UDP command strings quite easily.
