Thread: Requesting user's opinion on documentation!

  1. #11
    I would like some information about the "Enable Combine" Event

  2. #12
    Some examples of how the MIDI events work would be nice. At first I though 'pitch' meant pitchbend in this context. Perhaps 'note' would be better than 'pitch' to avoid any confusion. Still in this context, I'm not sure what 'voice' mean (even after reading you previous comment ;-)...

  3. #13
    Yes, that feature should be documented somehow.
    The voice parameter enable you to play notes polyphonically.
    Each note is identified by a voice number.

    I think however that the names are appropriate.
    Pitch and Voice are common terms in MIDI jargon.

    Thank you for your suggestions, I will try to document the Voice parameter in a better way.

    Your chosen terms are probably the right ones. It's just me who gets confused easily... ;-) A bit of documentation on the MIDI aspects would be nice though.

    i'd like to "third" the request for downloadable documentation. doesn't have to be pdf, could be html. i was just in the situation where i was on a long train ride and working on some programming, but got stuck because i couldn't access the documentation. there are lots of situations like that, the last thing you want is to be on stage somewhere and have a problem just before the show starts, and you can't figure it out because you have no internet connection...

    thanks!

    I will include the documentation as part of the application and update it with the missing bits for the next release (2.11).

    I'm sure this has been asked for before, but I'd like to ask again for a downloadable manual and tutorial guide, to take someone from absolute beginner to OSCulator expert. Lots of examples, lots of downloadable templates to fiddle with, with everything explained.

    I have gone through the documentation, and to be honest, I found it a bit of a struggle to find the answers to simple questions there, particularly in terms of integration with TouchOSC surfaces one may have designed.

    I know this is a massive undertaking, but in terms of teaching this stuff (I do this a lot!) there just isn't the simple, understandable information out there on OSC and this would be a great place to start with such a great piece of software!

    Hi Phinland,

    This is exactly what I have started to do a month ago, at least I'm trying my best to rewrite the user manual
    You can already download an initial edition of the PDF manual here:
    http://www.osculator.net/forum/threa...ator-2.11-beta

    It is not complete, but when it will, OSCulator 2.11 will be released.

    The difficulty is that OSCulator is a "general purpose" software in some sense, and I can't be specific to TouchOSC, or any software. Regarding TouchOSC, there are already a lot of examples in the Sample Library, and each example is commented in the accompanying Notepad window.

    I hope this answers your request.

    Best Regards,
    Camille

    Hi Cam, Thanks as always for your input. To reiterate our email exchange, I think the new beta manual is a massive step forward. A really great pair of additions would be the functions appendix and some incremental worked example projects, moving from absolute MIDI/OSC/OSCulator beginner to expert in several increasingly complex stages. Cheers!
