General / Inspiration needed - how to make a MIDI light switch
« Last post by Adam on Today at 12:28:44 AM »
I use CueLux mostly for theatre lighting, frequently an on-stage character will do something like turn a light switch on, often using a real switch that is not connected to anything.  Getting the timing right and watching the actors finger on the switch is often really difficult and often results in less than perfect timing so I've been trying to think of a way to make the 'fake' light switch trigger a CueLux cue or go button via MIDI.

Has anyone done anything like this before?  What hardware did you use?  Any tips on how I could achieve this?

Thanks Julien,

Will give it a try.

Would be good to figure out what was wrong though and get the codes so I can start learning some of this stuff.

I had a look at your file and found some problems with "" that were not the right kind..
I fixed it and now I can se the minimal in the list.
In my previous post you can click on the link to download a document wit the list of all the midi commander.
This time everything should be working fine. ;)

Hi Julien,

Tried that but for some reason when I put the code in it won't see the midimap file.

Have attached my file.

Probably something obvious.

Is there a list of commands for Cuelux I can download? It would make it easier if I knew what commands do which buttons.
 
Thanks

Here I some code I have just tested and it is working.

                <action>
                    <trigger type=“Midi” specifier=“Down”>Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 56</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                          <task type=“Selection” feature=“Clear” function =“Set”/>
                    </tasks>
                </action>
                <action>
                    <trigger type=“Midi” specifier=“Down”>Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 57</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                        <task type=“Selection” feature=“Previous” function =“Set”/>
                    </tasks>
                </action>
                <action>
                    <trigger type=“Midi” specifier=“Down”>Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 58</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                        <task type=“Selection” feature=“Next” function =“Set”/>
                    </tasks>
                </action>
                <action>
                    <trigger type=“Midi” specifier=“Down”>Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 59</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                        <task type=“Selection” feature=“All” function =“Set”/>
                    </tasks>
                </action>
                <action>
                    <trigger type=“Midi” specifier=“Change”>Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 60</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                        <task type=“Special” function=“Set” feature=“Clear Programmer” />
                    </tasks>
                </action>
First action, clear the selection, second action select previous fixture, 3rd action select next fixture, 4th action select all fixtures, 5th action clear the programmer.
You just need to change the index value to fit the buttons you want to use.

I don't know if you are using it, but there is a midi api document for cuelux that may help you.
You can find it here: https://forum.visualproductions.nl/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=7096.0;attach=3719

Tried a few things, still no luck.

Presumably this is the action that is run by button '82'

                <action>
                    <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Change">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 82</trigger>
                    <tasks>
                        <task type="Special" feature="All" function ="Control"/>
                    </tasks>
                </action>


What I need is the code to enter to make it press the buttons on screenshot.

Got it, fixed that. Found I had the code in twice.

Just need to get the Select and Clear working now.

Thanks

In "Bootsy van der Zande" previous post ( June 27th 2022), at the bottom of the message there is an "akai.xml" file you can download,
