OSC control /eos/fader/ with ticks up/down, rather than a float value?


Is there a way, that I haven't been able to find, to control a fader via OSC with ticks up/down, rather than a 0.0-1.0 float value? Similar to how wheels and encoders can be controlled?

The thought behind this is to have a joystick control the faders level up or down without the need for the OSC sender to know the faders current position.

The assumption here is that there is a cuelist on the fader and the fader is behaving like a master (default settings, proportional master).

I haven't been able to even find a simple workaround for this, like a command line command, macro or MS command..

PS. I haven't understood how the /eos/fader/ commands: min, level, +%, -% are supposed to work. These feel like channel control functions, but I don't get what they have to do with faders.
When controlling a fader that is a sub, commands I found to work are: out, home, full, max.


  • No, this is not intended with fader for a simple reason, each tick represents a bit in a parameter value (DMX data). So what should a tick represent for a fader value? But you can program this with an hardware environment like Arduino.

  • Ah,

    That is the part I forgot to mention. The amount of the tick would be the argument as a float from -1.0 to 1.0 in the OSC message. As the fader is already normalized to a float between 0.0 and 1.0 (at least when there is a cuelist on the fader). The amount of ticks defined in the OSC message would move the fader down or up. 3 decimal precision on the float should be enough, I think that is what the fader is outputting as it's level on OSC.
