iPad TouchOSC :: DJ / Producer Video Tutorial 4-Part Series

The vast potential of the iPad in the world of music production and performance is quite an amazing thing. The flexibility to transport a completely customizable controller, that is light and compact, anywhere you want, plus a wireless connection to your computer, make it one of the most exciting developments in recent memory.

In the world of music technology, there are new controllers being made all the time, each one seemingly cooler than the last. But offset this with the constant rate at which new plug-ins are being released, and it seems that as cool as these controllers are, there’s just no way the hardware can keep up with the software.

With the iPad that has all changed.

The ability to program your own controller interface is huge, a game changer. For those who checked out Tony’s written review of TouchOSC, you already have an understanding of how powerful this application is.

Now, we are proud to release the first TouchOSC video tutorial series available, fresh from your friends here at Dubspot. Learn how to harness the power of one of the coolest toys a musician can have. Use this modern marvel to DJ, produce, and control a live performance from anywhere in the room. Watch the videos, and you’ll be doing it in no time. Enjoy!

It should probably be said that TouchOSC is available for the iPhone as well. That, and you don’t need OSCulator, you can use Max4Live or PureData…

Great Tutorial,
I followed tutorial part 2 of 4,In my case Osculator says that 8000 is already in use. I tried the setup several times; I also saw the little square’s get yellow; saw the options turn up in Ableton; the only thing that will not work is controlling your template in Ableton.
I have tried a template from another source in an earlier stage.
I got that to work over my normal wifi network; but as soon as I tried to make it work over a direct network connection with my Apple that didn’t work either.
I think (hope) that I’m doing something wrong; but I can’t find what.
Does somebody have a suggestion for me?

Hi guys!!!!
First of all congratulations for your work…. Now we have a reason to use the iPad.
I wanna ask you how to create on/off buttons and some tab to have kind of a first set of display and other secundary display for other objects and sliders?
I ask you this because as a vj, we sometimes need to turn off and on layers or just make that point freeze until we work it again.

Thanks

Thanks for the tutorial guys !

When it comes to tapping “sync”, i get this message :

“To sync the current layout to your device

1) Make sure your iPod/iPhone is connected to the same WiFi network as this computer”

2) Open TouchOSC and go to Layount > Add

3) Select this machines’ name from the list to download the layout

Do you know where this could come from ?
