[Csnd] Wiimotes

jpff
Slightly off topic but this week I returned to my wiimotes as a controller for csound.  I renewed the batteries -- they were dead after quite a long time unused -- but  I have failed to get it to turn on.  Does it need a Bluetooth signal to start?  I suspect I had now such device o at the time.

Thanks for any insight.

I don't think it needs a bluetooth signal to
start, you should get some lights when you turn it on.

The four blue lights on the front tell you how much power is left in the batteries - they go solid when you have a connection.  And yes, they connect via BlueTooth.  So you need to pair with the device.

Re: [Csnd] Wiimotes

jpff
Either I have a broken wiimote or trouble with batteries as when I push the on button nothing happens; no lights at all.  And I am not sure about Bluetooth on my laptop.  I think it is on but I do not know how to check.  It seems very different from my previous computer in this area.

Which prompts me to ask about using an OSC control from a tablet, and which if any of the android apps I should try.  There seem many with limited information as to what they do.

Hi John,

I really like the idea behind Open Stage Control (osc.ammd.net). If
you have Chrome installed you can try the online demo at that website.

Otherwise, there's a free app for Android by Charlie Roberts called
Control that works fine.

Cheers.

Re: [Csnd] Wiimotes

jpff
After a significant check on batteries it seems clear that my wiimote is
dead -- no lights when pressing ON or anything else.

I looked at Open Stage Control but it looks too complex for me to
understand.  Could not see what addresses/host/port it used to send OSC
messages and the editing used some language I do not know.  It certainly
looks like a crafted piece of software, but hard to use.

I looked for the free app for Android by Charlie Roberts; it took time to
find and it is not in he play store, so have not tried it.  Documentation
suggests I need to learn JavaScript before getting anywhere.   Oh well!
Was a good idea

Re: [Csnd] Wiimotes

Oh, sorry for the trouble. I should have been more explicit.

Regarding Open Stage Control, if you still want to give it a go: you
have to install the .deb from here
(https://github.com/jean-emmanuel/open-stage-control/releases), launch
it. Set the OSC "send"(to) address and then press Start. Now you'll be
able to access the interfaces through Chrome/ium and you'll get what you
see in the demo. Inside the web browser, right-click on the screen and
left-click on "Add Widget". You'll have a list to choose from all the
possible widgets. Then, on the right side of the screen, at the bottom
of the inspector you'll find the OSC "address" field with something like
"/fader_1". You can also override the "ip:port" pair you set earlier by
using the "target" field. And that's it, just Save them for afterwards
before closing the web browser.

Regarding Control, I might have had to build Control myself, but I don't
remember doing that. Maybe it was in the play store, but now it's
definitely not anymore. If you manage to build it from github
(https://github.com/charlieroberts/Control), then the interfaces are
written in JSON. You've probably already seen this intro
(http://charlie-roberts.com/Control/?page_id=32). Also, here's the JSON
for one with a button and a slider as an example
(http://www.charlie-roberts.com/Control/interfaces/slider.js). It's a
hassle, but at least it's MIT-licensed!

Cheers.
