View Full Version : MIDI Control for LiveText

12-21-2014, 05:02 PM
I've put together a whitepaper that explains how to control LiveText via MIDI from an iPad using TouchOSC. You can download it from http://bit.ly/kanesworld


Let me know if you run into any issues. It also helps to read the whitepaper on 'iPad MIDI Control of TriCaster' as some of that information will apply to this paper as well.

Nice work there Kane.

Is this for LiveText on a Tricaster or stand alone versions?

Standalone LiveText, as the built in LiveText (aka Graphics) can't be used at the same time while TriCaster is running in 'Live'.

The tools I'm using to make the work are taking MIDI commands and converting it into a keyboard presses. So it could be make to control just about anything as long as it has keyboard shortcuts to do what you want. For example you could have it pressing the next or previous keys for a PowerPoint presentation if you wanted to.

Hi Kane,

Is there a way to use the downloads to control the Livetext Computer with a midi board connected to the Tricaster? Adding an iPad is probably not allowed in my budget.

Not really, in fact this document is a bit out of date in that you could now use TouchOSC with the MIDI bridge software to send keyboard shortcuts without having to do the entire workflow in this document. It wouldn't be limited to iPad anyone either, you could use an Android tablet with the MIDI bridge software.

Thanks. This makes it interesting for me.
