Topic: MIDI Remote 1.7 with support for OctaMic XTC

Hello,

the OctaMic XTC can now be remote controlled by our own free Windows/Mac software, MIDI Remote. All functions of the OctaMic XTC can be remote controlled over MIDI or MIDI over MADI. Level meters of the 8 input channels are directly visible on screen. The routing of all the I/Os can be done easily in an extra Options panel, extending the bottom of the window.

To successfully use MIDI Remote we had to extend the XTC's MIDI protocol. Therefore the XTC needs an update of its firmware to version 36/25 (shipped units have 35/21). The update is easy with these tools:

https://archiv.rme-audio.de/download/fu … ce_mac.zip

Mac users simply connect the unit and start the flash tool. Win users need to install the driver of the MADIface first (also called Flash Enabler), found here:

Have fun!

Re: MIDI Remote 1.7 with support for OctaMic XTC

Working, thanks. Minor correction: on the Phone's settings SRC it says "gain group select 9" instead of "SRC phones 1/2", and on "balance" "phantom power input 9".

edit: but it doesn't seem to be possible to control both with TM FX and MR, TM just crashes then.

We never said that is possible. And it makes no sense either.

even worse: with TM FX XTC enabled one gets ghost switchings all over enabling MR

Version 1.7 has now been released on our website for Mac and Windows. Please note that simultaneous operation of the XTC via MIDI Remote and TM FX Aux Devices is not possible.

Re: MIDI Remote 1.7 with support for OctaMic XTC

excellent! just been checking  this out, would it be possible for an update to support higher res screens (e.g surface pro)
Totalmix for example has an option to increase to 200%

Midi remote appears absolutely tiny on a big resolution

e.g totalmix with midi remote on a surface pro screen

another feature request (maybe impossible but just have to ask) - would it be possible to integrate this into totalmix? (when octamic xtc is enabled as a device)

thanks!

Will there be a 64bit version for Catalina in the future?
I'm planing to buy a 16" MacBook Pro and  for using Micstasy it would be nice to remote control it as I'm used to do.
