Update: ProPresentor Control for ETC Consoles

Just wanted to put out a quick update on using ProPresentor with ETC Eos series consoles. Some recent changes to OSCulator have created problems sending OSC commands to the console after receiving MIDI notes out of ProPresentor. Luckily with Eos 2.5 there is now a way to take commands from MIDI notes directly into the console. Here is the information from the ETC forums: 

1. Create a new event list in Tab 11 (Show Control) (Event 1/ Enter)
2. Set the type to be {Network}
3. Set External to {On}
4. <Event> [1] {MIDI String} {Note On} 
5. Pick the note, octave, and channel. You could use Any if the octave or channel may vary.
6. Set the velocity to the target velocity, or set the velocity threshold to the minimum velocity value for it to respond. You could set it to 1, so it would respond to a note with any velocity.
7. Press OK
8. Add the action as Macro 1 (or whatever macro number you want it to fire).

Full instructions can be found in the newest Eos Show Control Supplement starting around page 39.

I've also set up a series of Macros doing pretty much the same thing that OSCulator was doing. The only additional hardware needed is a USB MIDI dongle to plug into your computer and the console.

Also, here is a show file with only the show control events and macros needed to get this working along with updated simple use instructions.
