What’s OsiMIDI?

OsiMIDI is a software that allows the use of an economical USB MIDI controller directly connected to a USB port of your PC, in order to control the Avolites Titan One software.

Avolites Titan is a software leader in the lighting sector, developed by the company Avolites. Titan One is the most economical hardware for use with the Avolites PC Titan Suite. It is a USB dongle that provides a DMX port to your PC, with the disadvantage that the user must control the software with the mouse, keyboard or touch screen.

OsiMIDI was created to complement the Titan One hardware, to allow control of the Avolites software using an economical USB MIDI controller.

Thus, OsiMIDI makes possible a cheap lighting control solution, composed of the following elements:

  • OsiMIDI software.
  • Titan One DMX USB dongle and Avolites Titan PC Suite software.
  • A cheap USB MIDI controller. For example: Korg NanoKontrol, Behringer BCF2000, Elation Midicon, or similar. It is possible to use any USB MIDI controller that works with messages of type Control Change for sliders, messages of type Control Change or Note On / Off for buttons, and messages of type Control Change or Note On for wheels (encoders).

OsiMIDI does not supply Avolites Titan PC Suite software or Titan One hardware. You must purchase this hardware and software from an official Avolites distributor. OsiMIDI neither supplies the USB MIDI controller, you must purchase your own.

Avolites Titan and Titan One are registered trademarks of the company Avolites. NanoKontrol is a registered trademark of Korg. BCF2000 is a registered trademark of Behringer. Midicon is a registered trademark of Elation Professional.

Could OsiMIDI functionality be achieved with Avolites Titan MIDI Triggers?

No. Without the help of OsiMIDI, Avolites software cannot be managed by a USB MIDI controller connected directly to a PC:

  • In the case of Titan One, Avolites software does not provide MIDI triggers.
  • In the case of other Avolites hardware (Mobile etc…), it makes no sense to use an economic controller, as the Avolites hardware allows better control. Furthermore, MIDI Triggers only works with devices connected to the MIDI port of Avolites hardware, not with USB MIDI controllers directly connected to a USB port of the PC.

How does it work?

OsiMIDI listens for messages from your MIDI controller, and sends commands to your Avolites Titan One software in order to act on certain controls.

Of course, OsiMIDI does not modify any of the files of Avolites Titan One software. OsiMIDI runs side by side with Avolites Titan One and uses the Microsoft Windows Foundation technology to change the values of controls.

Configurable

OsiMIDI is completely configurable, and allows you to assign the buttons and sliders on Avolites Titan One to correspond with buttons and sliders on your USB MIDI controller.

The following controls on Avolites Titan One are configurable:

  • The 10 sliders.
  • The 10 swop and flash buttons.
  • Back page, go to page, and next page buttons.
  • Other buttons: Record, Go, Clear, Exit..., nearly all buttons on the Titan One's interface are available.
  • Keyboard shortcuts. OsiMIDI can send keystrokes to Titan One to control functions that cannot be handled with buttons.
  • The 3 attribute wheels.
  • Buttons in these workspace windows: Playbacks, Positions, Colours, Groups, and Gobo and Beams.

Configuration is made simple thanks to configurator application. There's no need to enter the values manually, simply select a control on the configurator application, and then move the equivalent control on the controller, the configurator then automatically performs the mapping for you.

If you have multiple controllers, OsiMIDI allows you to store different configurations, and select which one you want to use.

Localization

The language of the application and help can be changed from the configurator application. The application and help are available in English and Spanish.

What controllers can I use?

Any small USB MIDI controller that works sending messages of type Control Change for sliders, and messages of type Control Change or Note On / Off for buttons. For example: Korg controllers such as the NanoKontrol or NanoKontrol2 work perfectly.

About attributes wheels, there are two cases:

  • If your controller has encoders, you can use them to control the wheels. The encoders should operate in relative mode (i.e., send a message repeatedly when rotates, a different message when turning left or right) and send messages of type Control Change or Note On. For example Behringer BCF 2000 (Control Change) and Elation Midicon (Note On) are compatible controllers.
  • If your controller does not have encoders, such as the Korg NanoKontrol, you can use a fader or rotary knob to control the wheels, with the help of an additional button that would allow us to recover the position of the fader or knob without moving the wheel.
