Interface files posted

I’ve posted some of the interface JSON files that come included with Control; they’re a good resource to get an idea how to create interfaces or to modify for your own purposes. They’re located at http://www.charlie-roberts.com/Control/interfaces. As time goes by I’ll be adding more interfaces to this destination for people to download, accordingly, I’ve created the following link shortener to make it easier to type on mobile devices: http://goo.gl/5K4W7. At least, I think that’s easier…
I guess the shortener doesn’t work if you add the interface filenames to it… use the full address.

At some point maybe I can figure out a way to browse folder directories from within Control…


  1. error message: could not load. Please try another URL.

  2. This normally happens if you enter an incorrect URL. If you enter a correct URL but Control can’t parse the file, it won’t give you any error message at all. It just won’t do anything… something I definitely need to fix.

    What URL are you trying to load? Is it on your own machine or is it from the Control website?

  3. Shoot. That goo.gl shortener doesn’t work if you add the interface filenames to it. You’ll have to manually type it all out, for example:

    Sorry for the confusion.

  5. I’ll also point out that, for the moment, the files in the interfaces folder are already included with Control with the exception of the template.js file. Template.js is a good starting point for creating your own interfaces. The other files are just there as examples of how the JSON definitions and scripting work.

  6. I somehow cannot see any destination. I tried everything: manually typing my IP, setting up a network on the MBP, opening Ableton, Pure Data, QLab… I never see any destination. When I type in the IP of the laptop manually I get a blue picture with a white questionmark in front of it when I want to edit it.

    I just DLed Control on a 3G with most recent iOS4 and a MBP with the most recent OS X 10.6.6.

    What should I do..?

  7. Where can you not see the destination? It sounds like it’s showing up in the Destinations menu if you can edit it… are you trying to use MIDI or OSC? If you’re trying to use MIDI, make sure you’ve started up the wireless MIDI settings in Audio/MIDI setup… see the Quickstart for details.
