Dear Scott,

Well , noted. Thank you very much.

I checked the open option in touch OSC Editor to see samples available there. But all folders are empty and so I could not find any sample Layouts there to give a try. I only have yours and that one did not use a rotary Vol control.

73s,

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the idea to set Channel for different controls in Touch OSC Layout like Button, Slider etc. ?
Is the Channel number same for all controls in a Page or in a Layout ?

Prem,

You must be doing something wrong. I just downloaded the latest TouchOSC editor. In the Layouts folder that it comes with there are no less than 14 sample layouts. Download and extract a fresh copy. They are there.

You can see in my example that I used the same channel for all controls. That is what you need to do.

73,

Hi Scott,

I had used 64 bit OSC editor for windows.

Ver 1.8.4 win64.zip
Is that ok or not ?

Why wouldn't it be OK?

A folder of 14 sample layouts comes with both the 32 and 64 bit downloads.

If you don't see them, re-download and look carefully.

Hi Scott,

It was a mistake from my side to get the samples from a different folder ! I was checking some where ! :)

How is the impact of "Custom sized Layout" as seen in your layout ?

I was trying to make a new layout modifying your layout. Notice some controls behave as if I pressed some other control close to it !
I doubt the screen size issue ?

I use Ipad.

Now I am trying to rebuild it selecting "iPad " in place of "Custom"

Don't know, Prem. I'm strictly an Android guy and don't know anything about iOS. I prefer Google's evil empire to Apple's evil empire ;)

Hi Scott,

I designed my OSC layout which cover most of functions on PSDR screen.
I like to add option to display VFO Freq display in OSC layout. Is that function available ??

Short answer: no.

Long answer: you would have to write a Windows application that obtains the frequency from PowerSDR using a serial CAT connection and then re-transmits that over a MIDI connection to TouchOSC.

Prem,

How about posting a screen shot of your layout?

Thanks,

Hi Scott,

So we cant do the frequency displayed in OSC screen.
Please find attached the layout details I prepared modifying your layout and referring to some other sample layouts.
I have 3 Pages in my Layout as attached. If anyone interested, I can share the OSC design data file.

Great job, Prem! Excellent use of the multiple screen capability of TouchOSC, too! :) :) :)

Now you just need a wireless headset so you can roam around with your tablet and work the radio wirelessly!

And, when you decide you want to change something, you can! :D

Hi Scott,

Thanks for compliment.
We miss the Freq read out when away from PC screen ! We should be able to see the freq ! Rest all OK .

Also I noticed we don't have option to MAP few things as :

1. RX1 AF
2. CTUNE

etc.

Prem,

RX1 AF and CTUN are both available MIDI commands. Look at the list more carefully.

Any others you think you are missing?

The lack of a method for displaying frequency over MIDI is a consequence of the fact that the vast majority of MIDI controllers have no provision for displaying frequency. TouchOSC is a notable exception!

I have taken to using Chromecast to display PowerSDR on TVs around my house, and using TouchOSC to control the radio from whatever room I happen to be in.

73!

Hi Scott,

I could see

Vol VFO A &B
AF Gain which is Master AF in PSDR screen
RX2 Vol.

RX1 AF or Vol not seen
Also CTUNE not seen.

Can you tell me the Text seen in Mapping list for these missing functions (in my case) ?

Prem, I am not home for a few days so cannot confirm what the names are, but those controls are there, trust me. The problem is that some of the control naming suffers from some bad English (sorry, Andrew and Chris! ;) )

I think I remember CTUN being listed as "Click Tune" or something like that. I can't remember exactly which control is RX1 AF, but it is also there. I'm pretty sure it's VFO A volume or something like that. You'll have to experiment (just as I did) or wait a few days until I get back to the radio.

73,

Hi Erwin,

Thanks for response.
I have noticed VFO A & B Vol. Is it same as RX1 & RX2 Vol or AF ?? If same, why we have two different functions ?? That was confusing me.
Even in PSDR screen, we have

AF
RX1 AF
RX2 AF

Then separate vertical Sliders named as " Vol"

Hi Prem,

sorry, was a Mistake: Vol. VFO B works only for MultiRX.

The correct one is RX2 Volume,
Id-Nr. in the Commands is 222.

That works here perfekt.
