The first step in controlling Modul8 with OSC is to install the supplied module Lemur.m8m in the Modules folder that comes with your Modul8 installation. Load the Jzml project on your Lemur from the JazzEditor. Now we’ll setup the Lemur so that it sends out OSC messages to the right port. Head over to the JazzEditor software and hit the Settings button on the upper-right toolbar. Now hop on to the OSC tab.
In the dialog that appears on your screen, you may set several target IP for the Lemur messages. We’ll only worry about Target 0 here, this should be your computer’s IP. Click the My IP button to set it automatically. The Target Port is the port we mentionned above : set it to 8002, the default port Modul8 will use for incoming messages.
You may now launch Modul8 and activate the Lemur module from the Modules menu. Leave the port value to default 8002, and enter your Lemur’s IP so that Modul8 knows where to send its feedback (this example makes use of bidirectional control between yhe Lemur and Modul8). Now hit the Connect button: this is it !
On the main interface, you can set the alphas of all the layers in your set, crossfade between Group A and B, switch to different sets of layers. The other interfaces let you select a particular layer form the green switches, and modify its parameters such as position, rotation, color, scale, transformation, and so on.
The last interface lets you change a layer’s parameters from a step sequencer (upper part) : choose one of different targets with the radio switches and hit start. The sequencer on the bottom lets you sequence global Flash and Invert effects. The Seq button launches both sequencers at the tempo defined by the horizontal fader.
