a small update for OTC , so bump to v1.5
- fix some startup issue
- stereo input for modes to use
(its a smaller update than I’d planned, but thought it was better to release, than sit on it waiting for me to have more time to do the extra development id planned esp. due to the startup fix, which might be very valuable to some)
OTC_Mother v1.5 : https://patchstorage.com/otc-etc-for-organelle-application/
no changes have been made to OTC_Installer, nor OTC_Web, so these so not need reinstalling.
to install OTC, please read this thread
important note : C&G have moved the ETC modes and manual to:
FAQ, part 2 (continued from other post, check that too )
- will this work on the SDCard?
yes, I run OTC off the sdcard, just place modes in /sdcard/Modes
- I cannot find modes, where are they?
see new links above, etc.io no longer exists.
- Im using a new USB card do I need to reinstall?
OTC_Installer installs to the internal SD card, so you do not need to re-install if you are using a different usb stick, only if you re-flash the OS image
- which Organelle OS is supported?
Organelle 3.0+ , but Id always recommend the latest, as that it what I test with.
- it doesn’t work, what should I do?
first read the other OTC post linked above, I spent a lot of time adding all sorts of information about potential issues, and what to try.
also that posts details, what to do, and what i need if you want to report an issue.
lastly read the notes below about testing… you can see how I ensure OTC works on my Organelles
place any support questions etc in this thread.
(again, please remember OTC is not supported by C&G)
it is not just a matter of installing OTC_Mother.zop, you need other things
please read that post thoroughly, before posting questions here, its saves us all time
I found whilst testing very occasionally OTC would fail to start, after investigation this turned out to be a bug in pygame for which I found a workaround.
I know some users had issues with OTC starting up on their Organelle’s I cannot promise this fixes it, it may or may not be related to your issue - unfortunately, we never got to a good explanation as to why OTC worked for most, but for a few it didn’t - so without the cause its impossible to know if this is a fix or not. all you can do is try it
btw: generally I find its a good idea to have hdmi display connected and powered on before you start the Organelle - it seems to be a bit more ‘stable’ for me.
so the ETC is hardware limited to mono input, but the Organelle is not
so modes now have the following available in OTC
etc.audio_in etc.audio_left etc.audio_right
etc.audio_in, is retained for compatibility with ETC, and is an average of left and right.
but now we have left and right too (obviously using these, will make your modes incompatible with ETC)
what I like about these, is it means your modes can reflect the space of your sound…
so when you pan a sound from right to left, your image can move with it, I found it really helps tie the visuals to the sound.
