Topic: Patch goes crazy on new version of LX
Replies: 1

Opening an older file with LXConsole's new patch design will work. You should find that any old channels with multiple subchannels/attributes will have them included in a single channel part generically called "device". However, if you need to change the patch of a channel that has more th...

As far as I know, you need D2XX helper any time you want to use the d2xx FTDI driver. You can also use the MacOS vcp driver which comes with MacOS and that should work as well. LXConsole queries the widget to see if the Mk2 api is available. If it does not receive a reply from the widget, then you w...

The latest build of LXConsole 5.9.5 (16015.1) will output up to 12 universes of sACN or Art-Net. It seems to do just fine on an old 2010 Mac Book Pro sending all 12 universes at about 40hz.

The latest build of LXConsole 5.9.5 improves sending a single local universe to a single net universe. Specifying universes in the preferences works more as expected.

Also, LXConsole will now only send Art-Net or sACN universes that have at least one address used.

LXConsole is limited to 4 universes. You can send any one of LXConsole's universes to a specific sACN universe. Or, you can send all 4 of LXConsole's universes to a sequence of 4 sACN universes. If you don't have an address offset for the USB interface, it will send LXConsole's first universe, addre...

There is now a resolution column (rho symbol ϱ in the heading) which supports one or two byte resolution. Attributes with fine have two byte resolution.

My guess is that you are also having trouble with the command line. Those three labels are all things that LXConsole sends messages to TouchOSC to set the text. Other elements like buttons send messages from TouchOSC to LXConsole. To get that to work, you probably defined a connection in the new Tou...

The Setup window's channels tab allows you to define custom subchannels. The built in subchannels in the current version of LXConsole include most of the attributes defined in GDTF. These won't necessarily have the exact name used by a manufacturer. But, picking one that is close enough is probably ...

In testing uDMX with LXConsole on an M1 MacMini, I noticed a curious thing about the output speed. This test was using the native version of libusb-compat from homebrew and the latest build of LXConsole which is a universal application and was running natively on Apple Silicon. With the uDMX connect...

You can get two universes with an ENTTEC Mk2 USB interface. But LXConsole does not support two separate USB connections.

With Art-Net or sACN, you could use multiple interfaces and have up to 4 universes.

LXNet2USBDMX has a double buffering scheme. So, it does not necessarily send dmx updates to the uDMX as fast as they are received from the network. It waits until the update has been sent to the device before starting a new update. Meanwhile, if a newer packet arrives from the network, its data repl...

It may be because LXNet2USBDMX is specifically looking for a uDMX device with the product name "uDMX" and the manufacturer "www.anyma.ch". There is a new version of LXNet2USBDMX, 1.0.1 (https://www.claudeheintzdesign.com/lx/lxnet2opendmx_about.html) that you can try that will fal...

To be clear, you cannot just change the pin definitions. All of the other macros must also change. So, to use pin 1 for DMX output, in the header you would uncomment line 497 and it would read: #define use_optional_sercom_macros 3 The definition (or lack thereof) of use_optional_sercom_macros contro...

The SAMD21 has a variety of pin/sercom options.  If you want details you can look them up in the table in the datasheet.  There are several pre-built options in the header file that are set by defining a macro.  The documentation starts at line 461.  The macro that selects the options is defined...

Use other pins for SAMD21 DMX

For an open source project called NittyGritty (a ‘swiss knife for sound artists�) with an Arduino MKRzero I use your LXSAMD21DMX.h library to drive a DMX system. It uses the default sercom 4 macros but my Port on Pin 4 is already taken (by a rotary encoder) and I cannot change the PCB’s. How c...
