Question: hi Justin. I would like to make Reaper faders control RME Totalmix faders (& vice versa) via OSC. I'm trying to figure out OSCii bot. Totalmix responds to 1/Volume1 so i want to connect it to n/track/1/volume in Reaper. im not getting far, any chance you could give me some pointers ? ive created OSC layouts on tablets but ive little knowledge with scripting and theres not much activity on OSCii bot forum for help.. if i could get one fader working i think i could propagate the rest from there..

    Unless you need a lot of scripted logic, you probably don't need OSCII-bot, REAPER's internal OSC definitions could be used... Let's discuss in the comments here (or on the forum?)

    I mainly just need the faders to control each other 1:1.. Reaper uses @ for track numbers and Totalmix uses 1/Volume1 or 1/Volume2 etc.. i didnt see anyway to modify Reaper.OSC file to use to the Totalmix patterns ? if i put 1/Volume@ next to the TRACK_VOLUME action should that work ? i believe i tried that and didnt seem to get anything..

    my apologies.. i tried 1/Volume@ in reaper OSC config file again and that does work.. problem is though it's global and links every channel.. i only want 4 to 6 channels linked but if i specify 1/Volume15 in config file it doesnt work on per channel basis ?.. if you could offer any tips for OSCii bot that would be cool.. if not, i understand you get bombarded with lots of questions and requests so its no probs..

    You should take Default.ReaperOSC and copy it to a new file to edit (If using the default name REAPER ignores changes, counterintuitively) -- You'll also want to increase DEVICE_TRACK_COUNT to 16 I think!

    i renamed the ReaperOSC file before i started making changes.. what's odd is when i use 1/Volume@ the bindings work across all channels.. but when i specify 1/Volume5 next to TRACK_VOLUME to try and limit it to just channel 5 Reaper updates channel 5 in Totalmix on bootup but after that there is no further bidirectional control between the two faders ? you move them manually and nothing changes.. seems the only way that works is when using the @ wildcard ?

  • Posted by Justin on December 13 2020, 1:31pm:
    Without the @ it applies to the "currently-selected" track which is defined by messages sent by DEVICE_TRACK_SELECT

    just noticed when i add 1/Volume5 for TRACK_VOLUME Reapers master fader controls channel 5 in Totalmix.. If i add 1/Volume4 the master then controls 4&5..everything is tied to master fader.. @ works well for all channels but it would mess with my workflow on some other things, i mainly just want to bind 4 or 5 specific channels together.. maybe OSCii bot would be good afterall ? i'll keep applying myself with that.. thanks for the help.
