Control Bazik with Touch OSC

Par : bazik — 10 décembre 2014 à 12:11

What is TouchOSC ?

TouchOSC is a mobile app for iOS and Android. You can use it to control compatible softwares via your iPad or your iPhone. Your device become a cool remote for your desktop app.

What can I do with ?

As Bazik supports OSC, it allows you to control Bazik without being in front of your computer. In this tutorial, I’m using an iPhone, but it’s working with an iPad.

Select a color bank, modify parameters, shift, switch, break and play with preset pads. Get a complete control of effects part and active or unactive automation.

How to setup TouchOSC ?

It seems tedious, but it’s worth it !

1. First, be sure your computer and your iPhone are on the same Wifi network. If you don’t have one around you, create it from your computer.

osc_01

2. Please install the TouchOSC app on your device.

3 .Download the special layout below.

bazik_osc_iphone 01

4. Copy this layout on your iPhone with iTunes. Get help on TouchOSC website.

osc_02

5. Launch TouchOSC, then choose this layout.

osc_03

6. Go to Connections / OSC and edit the Host adress.

osc_06

Your Host adress must be your computer adress on the network. To find it, go to your Network preferences and check your IP address. Be sure it’s your IP address in the same network than your device (wireless).

osc_05

7. Now launch Bazik, and open the Options panel.

osc_04

8. Copy the TouchOSC’s “Local IP address”…

osc_07

… and write it into Bazik’s OSC first big field.

osc_08

Now insert Ports Outgoing and Incoming (generally 5000 & 5001) in the small fields.

osc_09

9. Click “setup OSC” and go to the Controls panel. Try to change a parameter in Bazik or in TouchOSC : Now you can control Bazik with your Iphone !

Maybe Bazik is going to prevent you about incoming connexions. Please Allow that, so TouchOSC can send data to Bazik.


Why I can not make it work ?

You don’t have to be a expert, but run TouchOSC requires time and patience. Follow the steps quietly and you will succeed.

When I change something directly in Bazik, the remote is not update, why ?

OSC remote work in both directions. If you change a Fx value directly in Bazik, the remote must be update in realtime. If not, it’s probably a error with the remote adress in Bazik (check step 8).

Can I use TouchOSC in a place without WIFI access ?

Yes, you simply have to create a local network from your Mac and connect your device directly on it.

I have enter each address several times but it does not work, wtf ?

First, be sure your computer and your device are on the same network. And be sure you use the good IP address from your computer in this network.
With TouchOSC, sometimes, the Local IP address need time to be update if you just change your network preferences. Try to relaunch the app and check if the address has changed.
If you have a doubt with your Bazik configuration, try to use TouchOSC with another software and come back when it’s work, so you can understand what is the problem and solve it.

You can find more help on the TouchOSC website.

About Kusmos Live by Kuflex Lab

Par : Marco Savo — 22 juin 2020 à 16:00

During these tough and uncertain times it has been inspiring to see so many audiovisual artists and events coming up with tools and formats to overcome the quarantine restrictions and social distancing.

A few weeks back the guys from Kuflex Lab reached out to showcase their latest tool that stands out among all the virtual/hybrid solutions we have seen so far. Kusmos Live allows to turn online concerts into interactive digital shows. Pretty neat uh?

Kusmos - Kuflex Lab - Audiovisual Interactive Tool

Let’s dive in and explore how it works. Down to the nitty-nerdy-gritty Kusmos is a custom VJ software written on openFrameworks + VDMX5 + Syphon.

In spring 2020 Kuflex studio began an experimental project Kusmos Live. The purpose of the experiment was to upgrade the Kusmos system in order to create a interactive online home shows.

In 2018-2019 the Russian audiovisual studio experimented with the innovative tool together with SILA SVETA studio on the Therr Maitz concert, Caprices Festival 2018, Nina Kraviz experimental performance at Coachella 2019.

OK, really cool but how exactly does interactivity work? We gave some feedback to Kuflex lab with a few tricky questions to better understand the whole potential of this new audiovisual tool.

KUFLEX: The Tracker program receives depth-sensor data, calibrates a point cloud as we need it (we can rotate the cloud, cut off everything you don’t need keeping only the data of the artist oneself and merge point clouds from two sensors) and sends it to the renderer (UE4 scene).

Scene functions build a 3D model using the data provided by the Tracker and then we can layer all kinds of features with effects on the model and also transform and distort it according to the artistic concept. We also captured video from the laptop’s webcam and sometimes showed its picture. 3D scene acting as the artist surrounding, a set of virtual cameras for capturing from different viewpoints and visual effects were set up in advance in the Unreal Engine. Then the OBS program captures the video of the launched scene and sends it to the video streaming server.

Kusmos Live - audiovisual tool

During our second live experiment we tested some new features for the viewers interactive communication with the stream. While Leksha (Smolensk, Russia) was playing his ambient-set, a VJ (Moscow, Russia) was controlling visual effects with the use of commands via YouTube chat in real-time mode. Our team has implemented this function between the concerts and decided not to tell the viewers about it.

During the stream, noticing weird messages in the chat, some of the viewers started to realize that they could not only send a message to the chat but to even affect visualization. In the end the concert has turned into a digital quest. Some viewers picked up effect control by sending particular commands to the chat. We have yet to comprehend how to develop this function in the future.

 AVC: We think it’s a really interesting and innovative project responding to the challenges of the pandemic. In terms of appeal for VJs there is the risk of potentially being extremely limited for the audiovisual artists creativity, and the aesthetic I guess would always be the same.

It would be key for the tool to have a wider range of possibilities of customization for the artists otherwise they might get tired soon. I guess they all want to leave their unique mark in the scene.

KUFLEX: Kusmos is a universal software tool, with the possibility of variability of visual and interactive solutions. As a rule, our team creates a virtual stage specifically for the performance of the musician. Of course, we want to upgrade the program creating a database with different scenes, effects. In this case, the user will be able to construct the scene himself and combine the effects for his live/stream. 

AVC: It’s a bit unusual to keep promoting the idea of “God is DJ”. Is the DJ persona so relevant the viewer wants to watch during the entire show in a virtual environment?

KUFLEX: Regarding Kusmos Live project, the Kuflex team is collaborating with various musicians. We wanted to support the performers. So this approach determined the emphasis on the figure of the musician on the virtual stage, under whose musical personality, sound we come up with a visual solution. We do not just shoot a video with a musician, as is often done in broadcasts, but create a digital avatar that changes depending on the script, music and VJ control.

At the same time, Kusmos Live is primarily a show, a kind of mix of live performance, a computer game and fantastic movie. The virtual camera can fly through digital space, we can switch to different visual elements of the scene and include additional visual effects to the music.

Kusmos Live - Audiovisual Tool

We try to achieve the effect of real interaction with the viewer as well. Our team is developing a function of interaction through chat – viewers’ comments fall into the scene, they can affect the content through certain chat commands. But Kusmos can be used by artists of other genres. In the near future we want to try to create a dance performance. Now we are discussing this idea with one Russian choreographer.

We will explore the topic of distances – where physical space ends, digital begins, the relationship of body and sound. Both dance and music will take place in live format.

Technically, the performer will find himself in different areas of camera scanning, on the screen we will observe how his digital avatar changes. Again, it will all be like shooting a movie in one shot and in real time!

360 Visual Festival - audiovisual event
AVC: We truly appreciate the viewers becoming active, participating and communicating with the stream. That creates a collective experience. Could people really tell if this was a live performance or not? It feels like the interaction should be more meaningful somehow, with a bigger impact to the overall audiovisual artwork.

KUFLEX: Our team worked on a concert from different cities. We thought about how best to organise remote control of virtual cameras and effects. And suddenly our creative director had an idea to manage content through Youtube chat. During the broadcast, he wrote commands like cam1 (switching camera 1), stars ( the star effect was launched).

We intentionally did not talk about this function in advance to get the quest. As a result, some viewers guessed and began to help in managing the scene. We explore different possibilities about other ways of interaction.

In the future we want to create a client application for connecting to the broadcast via a mobile phone, desktop PC screen or VR. We intend to develop Kusmos as an art tool. Our team believes in a power of collective interaction. We want to give a palette of visual solutions, effects. Let’s all together create beauty here and now! This idea is a sincere inspiration for us. 

AVC:  We would like to know more about how the collaboration you have done with Leksha where the viewers were controlling visual effects with the use of commands via YouTube chat in real-time mode.” How does the input of data modify the visuals? is it like a live coding or common human language and how it is related to the VR software?

kusmos live - kuflex and leksha - audiovisual artists

KUFLEX: Usually in an offline format, we work like this: musicians play music, and VJ manages visual content live using MIDI controllers. Some effects are linked to the amplitude of the sound. But in a situation where we did not have the opportunity to be onsite will all team, we decided to make control through chat commands.

We wrote a special function for our software that receives data from chat on YouTube using the Google API. We came up with several commands, for example: cam1, cam2, skin1, skin2, electric noise, lasers and the like. And when someone in the chat wrote one of these words, then a certain visual effect or a corresponding camera was included in our program.

In general, we have an idea to expand the number of commands and their appearance, so that it looks more like live coding. For example, add numerical arguments to the commands, which will additionally specify the parameters of a particular visual effect.

As for virtual reality, we have plans to create our own application for viewers who can watch live broadcasts using VR devices, thus more deeply immersing themselves in the atmosphere of the digital scene and additionally receive personal effects. 

Kusmos Live - audiovisual tool
 AVC: Fascinating this idea of “universal tool” for content in real time and interactive show. We think it’s important now to dig more into the idea of how it can involve more people in the creative process. It opens new ways of investigation on how to make every audiovisual experience unique, not only in terms of the aesthetics of the piece but also regarding the narrative.

KUFLEX: Yes, this is the main object of research for us. Usually, a limited number of people can come to the offline exhibition. So we want to overcome any space frames. With Kusmos we don’t have any restrictions online! We can find ourselves in amazing digital worlds that are impossible in the physical world.

Now that Kuflex Lab and its creation Kusmos entered our radar we will most definitely keep following their progression, as always supporting innovation and creativity in the audiovisual art world.

Installer manuellement une app’ iOS sur un Mac M1

Par : Pierre Dandumont — 6 janvier 2021 à 08:00

Si vous avez un Mac M1 (ou un DTK), vous avez peut-être envie d’installer une application iOS qui n’est pas disponible sur le Mac App Store. Et il y a différentes solutions pour ça.

La solution de base avec un Mac M1 (pas le DTK, un peu particulier) est évidemment de passer par le Mac App Store. Si vous faites une recherche, il vous proposera les applications pour Mac (le choix par défaut, normalement le plus adapté) mais aussi les applications pour iPhone et iPad. Par ce biais, il n’y a rien de particulier à faire, tout va s’installer.

Le Mac App Store propose des applications iOS

Passer outre les limites d’Apple

Premier problème, certains développeur ne veulent pas que leurs applications soient lancées sur un Mac. Leurs raisons peuvent êtres bonnes, mais si vous voulez vraiment passer outre, il y a des solutions simples. J’ai essayé avec iMobie M1 App Checker, et ça fonctionne bien. Le programme est gratuit et permet de télécharger l’IPA (le fichier d’installation) d’une applications iOS.

Une fois lancé, il faut choisir iPhone App, se connecter à votre compte Apple (je ne garantis pas que le logiciel ne va pas récupérer les données, ils indiquent que non) et chercher une app’. Par exemple Instagram. Il devrait vous proposer l’application, et la possibilité de télécharger le fichier IPA.

Une fois que c’est fait, il apparaîtra dans la bibliothèque et vous pourrez le sauvegarder.

Deux applications indisponibles

Avec un Mac M1, il suffit ensuite de lancer l’IPA pour l’installer l’application et c’est terminé.

Installation en cours

Instagram… sur Mac

Cette solution marche globalement bien, mais il y a quelques défauts. D’abord, certaines applications n’apparaissent pas, par exemple celles supprimées de l’App Store ou celles qui sont payantes (si j’ai bien compris). Ensuite, certaines ne fonctionnent pas, soit parce qu’il y a vraiment un souci de compatibilité, soit – comme pour Netflix – parce que l’application a été pensée pour planter sur un Mac M1.

Une solution plus compliquée, mais plus efficace

Cette solution passe par un programme payant (iMazing) qui va permettre de récupérer les applications directement sur votre appareil iOS (si vous en avez un). Du coup, ça fonctionne avec les applications payantes ou disparues de l’App Store tant que vous pouvez la télécharger sur l’appareil. La première étape consiste à connecter l’appareil au Mac (en Lightning ou en USB-C).

Dans iMazing, choisissez Continuer l’essai.

Dans la barre de gauche, choisissez l’appareil iOS, puis en bas à gauche, l’option qui permet d’accéder aux applications. Vous devrez aller faire un tour dans les options de macOS pour donner l’accès.

Dans la colonne de droite, choisissez Gérer les apps.

Ensuite, allez dans l’onglet Bibliothèque.

Maintenant, sélectionnez une application et cliquez sur l’icône de téléchargement. L’application va se connecter chez Apple et télécharger l’application. Ensuite, il suffit de faire un clic droit et de choisir Exporter .IPA. La suite est la même que plus haut : il suffit d’installer l’IPA.

Doom est un mauvais exemple, vu les contrôles

Il existe sûrement d’autres méthodes, mais les deux présentées ici sont (assez) simples et devraient permettre de récupérer la majorité des applications.

EyeTV Mobile, la TNT sur iPad et iPhone

Par : Pierre Dandumont — 12 février 2021 à 08:00

Dans le cadre d’un projet pour ce blog, je me suis procuré un tuner TNT pour appareil iOS (en Lightning) et j’ai eu la surprise de recevoir, en même temps, la version en connecteur 30 broches. Du coup, j’ai testé.

Pour commencer, comme d’habitude depuis quelques années, Geniatech (qui avait racheté EyeTV à Elgato) fait vraiment un mauvais boulot. Déjà, sur la page du produit, il est indiqué que les chaînes en HD ne sont pas supportées. C’est un problème classique chez eux, mais – on va le voir – ça marche. De toute façon, le problème est généralement artificiel : dans l’absolu, le tuner lui-même n’influe pas sur la capacité à gérer la HD (ou pas), c’est les possibilités de décodage de l’appareil qui le font. Et les appareils iOS permettent évidemment de décoder du H.264…

Les deux tuners

Physiquement, les deux tuners sont assez proches. C’est compact, avec un connecteur MCX et quelques adaptateurs. J’ai eu une antenne à fixer directement sur le tuner, une antenne à fixer en intérieur avec un câble et un adaptateur pour une prise antenne coaxiale. J’ai aussi eu une petite antenne en rab’, mais ce n’est pas le bon format. En France, dans la majorité des cas, l’antenne portable (ou d’intérieur) ne suffira pas pour une réception correcte, sauf pour ceux qui habitent dans un lieu proche d’un émetteur (j’ai fait mes tests avec l’adaptateur coaxial). La version Lightning dispose d’une prise micro USB femelle pour la batterie, qui permet d’éviter de vider celle de l’appareil iOS.

La partie logicielle est… bizarre. Il y a EyeTV Mobile, qui a été mis à jour assez récemment (après quelques années sans support) et EyeTV Mobile – Watch Live TV. Après quelques essais, la première application fonctionne, la seconde, qui a une icône aux couleurs du drapeau américain, détecte le tuner, mais pas les chaînes. J’ai trouvé la raison plus tard : il existe une version US du tuner, pour la norme ATSC M/H (la TV mobile).

Il demande son app’


Il y a plusieurs EyeTV Mobile…

J’ai commencé à tester sur un iPad Pro sous iOS 14, sans succès. J’ai sorti un autre iPad Pro (sous iOS 13) avec le même problème. Puis j’ai tenté avec un iPhone 5 (sous iOS 10) et… ça a fonctionné. Et dans le même temps, l’application a mis à jour le firmware du tuner. Contrairement à ce que dit Geniatech (et contrairement au torrent de mauvaises notes), la TNT HD fonctionne… plus ou moins. Sur iPhone 5, ça saccade énormément et j’ai l’impression (sans pouvoirn le vérifier) que l’application décode la vidéo sur le CPU, comme EyeTV sur Mac. Et avec l’A6 de l’iPhone, c’est un peu léger pour du 1080i.

Un message pas mal vu


Il n’est pas détecté


L’application est instable

Assez bizarrement, une fois que le tuner a accepté de fonctionner sur iPhone 5, il a été reconnu correctement sur l’iPad Pro. Et avec l’A9X, pas de soucis : on peut décoder la TNT proprement.

Ca marche


Vraiment


Mais l’image saccade


De retour sur l’iPad, c’est bon


Du 1080i

Dans les autres trucs à savoir, c’est que le tuner en version dock (30 broches) marche sur les appareils modernes avec un adaptateur Lightning et qu’iOS ne semble pas faire de différence entre les deux.

Le modèle dock fonctionne en Lightning

J’ai aussi testé avec un iPhone 4S (sous iOS 6) et il ne trouve pas toutes les chaînes, et n’accepte d’afficher que celles en SD, donc LCI et France Info, repassé en SD depuis quelques jours.

LCI fonctionne


Pas de HD


Ça fait un peu rétro


En intérieur avec l’antenne du toit, pas de soucis

On reparlera normalement des tuners quand j’aurais pu lancer mon petit projet.

Des prototypes d’iPhone EDGE

Par : Pierre Dandumont — 24 février 2021 à 08:00

Vu sur Twitter (encore) quelques images de prototypes d’iPhone de première génération (EDGE).

Si un des modèles ne semble pas fonctionnel, les deux autres sont sous l’OS de test. On peut surtout noter qu’il y a peu d’inscriptions sur les coques, un des iPhone n’a même aucune informations sur la coque (comme les iPhone récents).
