Level meters on touch osc

I have created level meter widgets In GP to monitor the levels of my backing tracks and these are working fine.

I also have an android tablet which fits on a mic stand on which I have touch OSC installed with buttons to select previous/next song and also the play from start and Start/Stop functions on the Audio player

The template also has a label which shows the selected song.

Is there any way I can get touch OSC to show my level meters or would I need something more sophisticated like Lemur

I have created 2 fader controls and tried to link them to the meter widgets using /“fadername”/GetValue and setting the meter widget to OSC name “fadername” but this does not seem to work

I suppose you used some kind of GP Mixer plugin for this?
If yes, I think there is no way to do what you want to do as the levels/meters information from these plugins are not “real parameters” like any other plugin parameters, but are parameters dedicated to the meter widgets which are themselves special widgets dedicated to display levels/meter information.

Yes I used the level gain plugin and mapped the meter widgets to the intensity parameter on these

I just came across the same question, trying to sync meters of the internal Audio Mixer to be shown on my TouchOSC remote.
Is there a way to do this meanwhile?

The most obvious path to send OSC data is via widgets, however the GP meter widgets are a special type and you can’t enable them to send OSC data.

The best way I have seen to do this will cost you: Blue Cat DP Meter Pro

It can pass the meter data to widgets (which can then send OSC), and it can send meter data via MIDI (which can then use the special Midi Out OSC block to send this as OSC).

There would obviously be a lot of data being sent out if you were monitoring multiple channels, so it might not be a practical solution.

This is 3 channels from EZdrummer. OSC data is sent via GP widgets that are mapped to DP Meter Pro parameters.

Wow, that is a cool workaround.
I will try and experiement with that.

Many thanks for sharing. :grinning:

Has anybody tried it? Or am I the first one to stress test it? I am looking forward to monitoring 64 channels simultaneously =) achievable?

Difficult to answer your question… Tried what exactly?

I suppose you want to view the levels of 64 channels on a device receiving this information via OSC? If it’s possible for 3 channels, why wouldn’t it be for 64? The problem will be in clearly reading 64 channels on a tablet…
