thats from a while ago, so not quite sure of the context, but…
otc always had the cc control over the knobs as described in the etc manual
what I added in OTC 1.2, was for a modes to see all CC, this means you can use a larger controller to control many different parameters (rather than just the 4 on the mode)
so yeah, can control the 4 mode parameters via CC (like etc), or create modes which have many more ‘parameters’
anyway a bit of an OTC status update for everyone
I’ve got a new OTC (1.5) in development, which currently has:
- a fix the issue that some users have had, where OTC seems to get stuck during startup.
- stereo audio input
however, I got a bit stuck on this as i realised that by adding more features, Im potentially diverging from etc hardware, making OTC superset.
i.e. all ETC modes will work on OTC, but OTC patches using ‘extended’ features will not work on ETC.
But I’m a bit unsure about this…
I liked the idea users could try out ETC on their Organelle, then if they decided they needed a dedicated box, they could buy an ETC.
but perhaps it doesn’t matter, i guess, if you start using OTC a lot, then you could just buy another Organelle. same price, and you get to choose to use it as a video box, or a synth.
(there is a coding decision here, concerned with, are the OTC improvements/changes ever going to be ported back to the ETC… if so, then extending the use of the OSD rather than using the Organelles lcd is perhaps preferable)
anyway, thats why OTC 1.5 has not been released yet… that, Ive been considering a few other improvements…
anyway I hope everyone is still having fun with OTC, there is more on the horizon
