Repeater iPad Touch OSC template

I have been working on a Touch OSC template for the my gear,for use with the missing link, here is is:

The page for the Repeater looks like this…

There are some refinements to be made and Im planing a second page now with ideas for track slip things. Like what happens if you double press a track reverse… well that track is now out of synch, so I need to have a way to put it back to normal. Plus I cant figure our ouw to divide the track slips numbers into sensible time divisions…

Basically on the left hand side is the transport controls. At the top, the global controls, and at the bottom left individual track controls (something that was very hard to get to in the hardware.. a two handed key combo!)
Moving round in a clockwise fashion…
Bottom middle is the mixer controls, with pan, and to the bottom right is the pitch sliders for each track, you can freely wiggle theses and they are quantised to semitones.
The section above in the middle and to the right is the Chord Pre-set section. This takes some explaining. It only really makes sense if I describe it thus. IF you record a single droning note onto ALL FOUR channels (or or REsample one track 3 times) then, by pressing one of these buttons you will get THAT chord. The labeling of the chords MAY not be musically correct, I discussed this at length with Rick, but never quite was sure if this was correct. Basically, if you press the button that says v (small v) you get a minor chord, a fifth away from the root (the drone note you entered) a V is major. Of course the application of this section is somewhat limited to one effect (that is my sig sound really) but think what you can do if you play 4 tracks (on the same not) but very differently, 1 drone, 1 rythmic chug, 1 wild frenzy and a minimal twinckle.. then when you change chords, the rythyms are retained but the chords play.

Ill try to make some audio example soon…

BTW its assuming you are using channel 1 on the Repeater.

Then on to the EDP:

This show the page for ONE of my 2 EDPS (no I dont have 9.. thats just a remainder as to which FCB1010 bank is the main control) This page has all the hidden nice things on EDP.

Has a few controls from BOTH.. this is for quick and nifty finger tapping, like quicky undo-ing on both machines or quicki Sus-ing.

Then I have one page for the GR55 guitar synth, that just exposes all the programmable CCs. Havent used this so much, but extremely good for soundscape stuff…
