Remote Controlling Solution

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to trigger some of my CUEs from our show control software.

Obviosly this would be possible over Midi with the Midi extension board. But I thought if there maybe is an other way, possibly over the network.

Is there an API to controle the desk?

 

Regards Veit

Hello,

 

Ways of remotely controlling Solution without a SMPTE/ MIDI Card are the Remote App for phones, tablet and PC, and also DMX In being assigned to Playbacks.

MIDI is the ideal way of triggering cues from show control software using Show Control or Time-code protocols.

Hi Edward,

 

thanks for your reply.

I already thought so, yust hoped I could implement it directly without additional components.

But then I think I will get a MIDI Card for our next production.

You can purchase the card from your local distributor:

Hi Edward, 

We finally got our Midi card. But I have some problems using it. 

I was not able to trigger Cues with MIDI. I tried MSC and Midi timecode but nothing happened. 

I enabled MIDI TIMECODE and MSC in the input Output  Settings and checkt divice ID and fps match. 

The Midi signal also seems to work. At least our audio console receives the signal. 

Is there any way to check if the Midi card works correct and if it receives Data?

Hi,

We use a Tascam US 16x08 controlled with a Software called Show Cue System.

And what I forgot to say, we just updated to ZerOS 7.9.2.50 because I read there would be MIDI Problems in previous versions. But the update did not change the behavior.
