iProgramCard USB MIDI control from Max
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Buchla, EMS & Serge  
Author iProgramCard USB MIDI control from Max
darrenji
For anyone who's interested in controlling the iProgramCard from Max via USB MIDI instead of WiFi, I just built an external that does the necessary OSC message format translation. Right now it's MacOS and 32-bit only, but I could do a 64-bit build if anyone needs it. The external and test patch are attached, as well as the previous Max Easel control patch for reference.

cheers,
Darren

If you use Max/MSP and this external object, you can just connect the iProgram Card to your computer via a USB mini cable and avoid the iPad app altogether.

yes it's cool , but for me it 's interesting to use the ipad and iprogram card without computer.

Please can you port the MIDI external for PC??

Thanks!

Thanks darrenji! I've been using the music easel max patch with OSC and it's a lot of fun. I'm trying to use the midi external, but I'm having a problem. I have it connected via a USB midi cable, but the midiout object doesn't recognize it as a possible output destination. Any advice?

Is the iProgram Card showing up in the Audio MIDI setup? (Or some equivalent if you're using windows)

You might need to follow the steps in the manual to load the MIDI firmware on the USB MCU. There's a chance it shipped with the USB serial firmware on that chip.

It's on page 11 of this document.

Feel free to PM me if you've got other questions and/or that doesn't work.

Thanks for your helpful response, drillionaire. I started to look into the firmware update, but then I realized that I was using the micro usb port, rather than the mini usb port. I found a mini usb cable, and now it works great! As I had hoped, it is better than OSC when sending polyphonic streams of data, so this is really quite useful! Any ideas on what the micro usb port is for?

Thanks again nanners

hmmm... no iProgramCard firmware in the download section at Buchla.com hmmm.....

The micro USB port is for uploading firmware to the AVR32 chip that deals with communication between the WiFi chipset and the ATMega.

I've attached the latest firmware.

Thanks Drillionarie!
I`m not sure what firmware rev. my iprogram card havr. Is there something new or fixed in this firmware? a kind of changelog??? Mine seem to keep disconnecting from some WiFI APs without reason.

I'm not sure about a changelog. This is the firmware that's been shipping since 2014.
