I have a quite noob-ish question about controlling Ardour with AndrOSC. First off, I’m running Ardour 5.12. The manual does a wonderful job explaining general OSC setup, but I’m not quite understanding a couple of things and as such I’m not able to get things working properly…When I create a button/fader/etc. in AndrOSC, how do I know which numerical values to use in the parameters of the “send” message? What I mean is the manual cites an example of a send message for setting up a surface: /set_surface/8/31/8403/0/8 i 16.
Where do those numbers come into play, and how do I know what number(s) to use when creating a send message? So far, I’ve created some buttons with the following parameters: /transport_play/1 for starting the transport, /transport_stop/1 for stopping it. Neither of these have any effect in Ardour. I’ve already enabled OSC in the “Preferences” menu in Ardour, and I’ve chosen to have all messages logged under the “Debug” drop-down. I’ve left all of the other options set as default in the setup menu.
Please let me know if this question is better suited on Ardour’s IRC channel, or if I need to go back and do more reading…Of course let me know if more details are needed to help answer my questions.
