I am looking into purchasing the ETCnomad student package, but I would like to have some physical faders to control the software (ideally Hog4PC).
As I understood, and correct me if I'm wrong, MIDI control is not supported in the student version, which leads me to several questions:
- Is there a work-around to use a MIDI-controller with the ETCnomad Student Package?
- Is there a work-around to have physical faders for the ETCnomad Student Package using #lighthack and OSC? Does this also work for the Hog software?
- If the answer to above questions is no; how much would it be to upgrade the student edition to have MIDI control supported?
I already contacted Customer Support with these questions, but unfortunately without any response, I am hoping to get some more answers on this forum :)
Thank you all for your input!
- MIDI control is generally supported, you can use with an USB MIDI interface.- I started a #lighthack faderwing project with 6 faders and 12 buttons, have a look to https://github.com/sstaub/lighthackbut I don't know if it works with a Hog, because I don't know about the OSC capabilities of the hog software.
Hog will only support fader control via MIDI/OSC with an unlocked ETCnomad key, which unfortunately the ETC student package does not come with. You will need to upgrade to the unlocked ETCnomad key. To get a price for the unlocked ETCnomad key, you will need to contact a local dealer, which you can do at this link https://www.highend.com/about/contact-us#dealer
