UPDATE: Osculator app now comes with TouchOSC templates!
Using your iPhone as a Wireless MIDI controller. Find out how we can remotely control Logic Studio with our iPhones.
Alright so first we’ll need to download TouchOSC from the App Store.
So while we download that, lets go over to the desktop and download OSCulator. OSCulator is basically going to make Touch OSC work with Logic.
Make sure your iPhone and desktop are on the same wifi network. In TouchOSC, your desktop name should show up in network list. Make sure the layout you pick matches with the osculator template you want to use.
Once your connected, test out the controllers in TouchOSC and check OSCulator for a solid green connection. Now in Logic, you can use the Controller Assignment window by hitting Cmd+K. When assigning controllers, always make sure to set the value settings with an unsigned format and a scaled mode.
Heres a quick tip for assigning XY pads with Logics Sculpture Morph Pad.
Goto OSCulator and verify which midi CC is set to the XY. Then in Sculpture, go down to the Midi controller assign area and change the MorphXY settings to the OSCulator midi CC’s. Now your the iPhone can smoothy change the shape of sound in Logic
Alright there you have it, you get the idea. Of course you can also set this up as a piano, or a drum machine, lots of other cool stuff, I hope you enjoyed the epsode, I’ll cya next time with another tutorial.
