'Touch' parameter / value

Post  coupe70 on Wed Jan 30, 2013 4:43 pm

What I mean by 'Touch' parameter / value is something like a built in momentary button
for faders, knobs and XY pads. A controller sends a certain value when it is touched
and when it is released (like a momentary button). This enables you to for example
control a FX with a XY pad, but the FX is only switched on as long as you touch
the XY pad.

Or to make it simple: I would like to have the Z parameter of TouchOSC in DAWOSC Smile

This is "kinda" already in the list. Using a fader to control the velocity of of buttons. This expands on that concept. making it more flexible Smile

I don't know if this is related. I read the thread you are talking about.
In my eyes that was more about linking two controllers together somehow,
perhaps by the use of variables.

I was talking about assigning a second OSC or MIDI message to a controller,
one fixed value that is sent when the controller is touched (no matter where)
and one fixed value that is sent when the controller is released again.
This would normally be used to momentarily switch some FX on/off, so
most of the time it would be 1 & 0 for OSC and 127 & 0 for MIDI.

Not sure if there was a misunderstanding - the TouchOSC editor makes
it quite clear I guess.

I'm not sure what you mean. I'll download the TouchOSC editor when I get to this. Hopefully, that'll help.

It's really quite easy and in the end nothing more than copying the functionality
of a momentary button to knobs, faders & xy pads. Hard to explain. Tell me if you
can't find it in the editor, then I'll guide you through.

Here are some pics to illustrate what I mean.

Let's say you have a lowpass filter with resonance inserted in one of your DAW tracks.
You create a fader or knob to control the cutoff frequency or a xy pad to control cutoff & resonance.
Here it's a fader.


You assign a MIDI CC to the fader, here #6, and map this CC to the cutoff
parameter of the filter oin your DAW.

So far so good.

Now I want the filter to be only active when I tweak it.
So I choose the additional z-parameter and assign a MIDI note to it.
Of course you could also choose a MIDI CC or whatever. Here it is note C#0.
Now the fader does not only send the value you dial in as MIDI CC, it
also sends a note ON whenever you touch (no matter where) and a note
OFF when you release it.
This note is now mapped to the on/off switch of the filter.
You touch the fader, the filter is switched on, you release it, the filter is
switched off (=bypassed).

Oh, btw, the "Response" parameter (pic 2) is also nice.
In absolute mode the fader (or knob) follows your fingertip.
This is nice and direct, but it can also cause parameter jumps
when touching the fader. That's how it is now in DAWOSC.
In relative mode the controller follows the movement of your
finger...well...relative, no matter where you touched the fader.

that's already in the feature list. It's called "Soft Touch". It'll be an option on how you want all controllers to work.

This should not be a global option, but an option per controller (fader / knob)
with "absolute" as default. I often need different modes in one layout. Same
goes for the option if controllers should respond to incoming signals. It's better
to make this an individual option than global.

I typed that wrong. I meant that it'll be an option per controller.
