    Control of Midas M32 from Crestron

    I'm a newbie to the forum so hello!

    I'm currently engaged as a Crestron programmer to install and commission an M32 into a university auditorium in London, with control from a Crestron processor via UDP and I'm having real problems structuring the commands. Hopefully someone will know how I can ger around this...

    I simply need to load and run show cues (three of them, numbered 1 - 3) and all the commands I send to it return the same error message about the length od the message being wrong and should be a multiple of four.

    Is there someone out there who could just tell me what the string should be from start to finish and now many null characters there should be?

    Many thanks everyone!

    Hi Andrew,

    Welcome to the forum. This is fully documented in Patrick's X32 OSC protocol (https://sites.google.com/site/patrickmaillot/x32). The actual OSC commands to load cues 1-3 would be
    /-action/gocue ,i 0
    /-action/gocue ,i 1
    /-action/gocue ,i 2

    The 4 bit null padding and the big endian format of the values are explained in Patrick's doc on pages 8-12

    Actually Andrew, all thanks goes to Patrick, for all his efforts in documenting the OSC protocol for us. Without his efforts, we'd all be "dead in the water", so to speak.
