Touch OSC midi mapping anyone?

Hoping there are some like minded people who want to use touch osc with the new midi mapping.

Here is the skin I made which basically is a copy of a sp1

it's all kinds of a mess trying to get it to work right though.

Basically I gave all the buttons their own numbers but haven't messed around with the other options in the osc editor so hoping people can help with what I want to do and the problems I'm having.

 

First off, the on/off for the fx buttons works but don't stay lit when I press them. If I use my mouse on my laptop to turn them on then they come on my ipad though.

The pads at the bottom will stay on once pressed and stay on even though I'm not pressing them anymore. I think it's because the midi says it's a pad but I made them in osc as buttons because there is no pad option.

Finally I would obviously like a modifier for the pads to use them for hot cues, fx pad, slicer and beat jump but I can't figure a way to make that happen.

And oh yeah, where is the midi control for the cfx on/off?

I tried this works great except when i open "Bridge" for OSC and map some stuff from my phone to Rekordbox, the cues start acting really weird if I trigger them from the keyboard also

for example, I mapped 3 cues on TouchOSC on my phone, they work great, then i hit the same 3 cues using my keyboard on my mac 1,2 and 3 and 2 triggers and then restarts the track, then if I quit the bridge app Rekordbox goes back to normal and at times just completes crashes

After a few hours of playing with it and googling what little is out there it seems there is no way to modify buttons so that the same 8 pads can be used for hot cues/pad fx/slicer/beat jump which is a shame, but still so much can be done it's still amazing. Here is a pic of my new skin

Dials on top are for the fx on deck 1 and 2 with single or multi toggle and on/off for each

CFX is only dry/wet, can't figure out where the on/off is for it

4 hot cue buttons with red delete buttons above each

buttons to show the pad selection, not very useful but left over from original

and the 8 pads for the PAD FX

 

What I've found is the software seems to be a little picky about the order you assign midi commands. Found the best way is to add a function for deck 1 and duplicate for deck 2 or sometimes they don't work.

By the way since we can export if anybody wants the files let me know, hopefully we can add to each other's work and get something going. I'm using this with my cdj 350's and djm250s to give me about another $1000 worth of value. Pioneer has my love for opening this up for us.

THANK YOU, looks perfect on an iPad mini, i love it. I wonder if you can set it so the buttons are backlit all the time so they stand out more

The link for the midi file is

http://www.filedropper.com/touchoscbridge

just load that and you should have all the functions I said for deck 1 and 2, gives you an idea of how simple it is for basic control. Depending on how you mix it should be enough.

 

Don't think there is a way to back light the buttons all the time but I haven't l played around with it much. You can download the touchosc editor and give it a go though.

Really like the the bottom one, looking good. I haven't tried scrolling, wonder if you could use a fader in the middle position.

all is coming along, just hate that sometimes the buttons stay lit when you select a page like FXMODE1 or 2, 2 will stay lit on the iPad even though u select 1, 1 and 2 switch back and forth in Rekordbox but random lights stay on or off in the iPad app
