CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD (beta software, please exercise care, no warranties expressed or implied, and you’ll need the readme file to get it working)
requirements: a homebrew-capable ds (which can connect to your computer over wifi), compatible audio workstation software (like ‘reaper‘) and dsmi correctly set up on your computer. more details in the download link.
tested on: reaper; (primary testing platform, works great), samplitude V8 SE (works but no VU display).
does not work with pro tools or logic yet, but support is planned
the following subset of the mcu protocol is supported:
- fader send, receive
- vu display
- track select, mute, arm and solo (w/ feedback)
- bank up/down
- more coming soon…
possible applications include: a wireless rec/arm remote or end-user monitor mix interface for tracking, touch-sensitive automation recorder during mixdown, multi-user mixing, ‘left-hand’ level control while tweaking VSTs…
lots more planned, more info soon.
some user interface elements have been taken from Reaper – BIG THANKS to White Tie and the Reaper posse for granting permission for use of this and helping out with design/layout. cheers again to tobw for the dsmi library. also uses palib and devkitpro/libnds, yay.
