Hi Thomas,I'm having a hard time following how the system is setup. Can you describe what you're trying to do, and what components are talking to what?I also have no knowledge of Horizon or Isadora, so that's also confusing me.Simon

I was working together with Gunther Seiser from Arge Kultur Salzburg on controling Isadora over OLA-osc - that works perfect
Gunther was working until now with Lanbox + Isadora and he wrote a perfect Isadora Program + TouchOSC-Layout, to contol the Lanbox from the ladder. He is very interested in Horizon + Ola and we started to think, how it could be possible to use this TouchOSC-Layout streight in OLA without Isadora.
He knows python, so we started to work on it.
the start is promising, but its not working as it should be
the fact is that touchOSC only uses one osc address - /1/fader1. Hence, the python programme must remeber which canal it actually is dealing with. And, therefore, it is not possible that Ola and Touch are communicate directly with each other.
The way looks thus: /1/fader1 to python
According to the canal variable the Dmx value has to be changed with /touch2osc.
What we have to find out in python: how we can send the correct Dmx value to the touchOSC when we change the channel.
maybe you or somebody else, who knows python can help us
I think evrything is described in the file riggingtool info.txt
I added also the isadora file horizon-ola-osc.izz, if somebody wants to check

OSC has been supported in OLA since at least 0.8.32.

Next step for me is to set up the PI as a WIFI router - so you dont have to carry a router with you, when you are on tour.
