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
Thank you from Gailey for your answer ! ;-)I currently have the same kind of question, but concerning the Eos that I would like to control in OSC.There is a dongle in the education pack, so a license. So why wouldn't it work?
For eos it should work fine.
hog differenciates between the small dongle version and the big dongle version. for eos the only difference between the two is how many addresses you can control, hog not only uses it to determine how many universes you're allowed to send, but also if you get OSC control.
