thanks for the info. I still could not find amy type of procedure on which steps yo select to make it work. I'm experimenting but not getting anywhere

is it possible to make the plugin more simplify like the obs-midi 0.9.3 ALPHA - 3.66. it's just much easier to understand, the BETA plugin I'm lost on how to setup my controller.. Binding?

When I am creating an action for custom filter settings, how do I determine the filer setting I want assigned? All I can choose is the source and filter, but nothing about which value in the filter.

nhielost updated obs-midi-mg with a new update entry:

obs-midi-mg v3.0.0 Beta 2

obs-midi-mg v3.0.0 Beta 2 is now available.​

Here are some refreshments to the 3.0.0 beta. Please review the old changes as well as these changes, and as always leave any questions, suggestions, or issues you may have in the OBS forum.

Additions:​

  • More UI navigation and structure changes!
    • The UI has been revamped again to decrease complicated UI movement...

Read the rest of this update entry...

Amazing update! So much more convenient and intuitive.

I'm still have issues targeting which setting in the custom filter settings I want to map. It could be user error, but nothing is popping up prompting me to select a setting. I am on Macos and Obs Midi 3.0 Beta 2.

Sorry to bug, normally wouldn't do this but I have a performance using OBS next week. Can any one tell me if there is something I should be doing differently?

I'm trying to make a SmartPad on my Rodecaster Pro II toggle a video source in a scene on and off. I have set the binding in the midi plugin to toggle the video source, and on the Rodecaster I set the button to Latching so that when I press the button it lights up, and then when I press it again the light goes out. I want that button to toggle the video source on when pressed, then off again when pressed again. But it won't work. See the screen caps for settings details.

The button will only work if I set the State to "Show" instead of "Toggle", but then I have no way of toggling it off unless I use another button to turn it off, but, I was hoping to be able to toggle this video source on and off with the same SmartPad button. Is there a way I can do this? Thanks!

OK installed and opened and I am greeted by Bindings, Devices, Messages, Actions and Preferences.
I want to bind a key on my arturia key step to transition to a certain scene in obs.
I go to devices and my arturia is there, good good good.
I go to bindings and add a new one, select the device (only one).
then there's "Messages". Why would I want to send anyone a message? is it an e-mail? is it sms? message in chat on twitch?
then I go to add an action. I can choose from 3 buttons. an = button. a "MIDI" button and an "adjust?" button. first one has a digit value, second 2 digit value, third also 2 numbers but in a different layout.
What do any of these mean? I just wanna bind a button to something in OBS. Does one need to finish sound engineering for that?
Is there a tutorial for this anywhere that's not from 4 years ago with old interface?

In case you were still having issues with this, set up the pad on your Rodecaster like this (use Momentary, not latching):

And set up the midi in the OSB plugin like this:
OBS_MIDI.png


Let the mapping in the plugin handle the toggling of the camera.

It is confusing but it unfortunately is the terminology that is used around the MIDI standard.

A "message" is an easier way to say "MIDI message". Think of it as a single chunk of communication between your device and your PC - for example you push a button on your MIDI controller and it sends a MIDI message to your PC.

We differentiate between Input and Output MIDI messages. Input is as described above - message sent from your device to your PC as a result of a button press, or a slider being changed, or a potentiometer being rotated. Every single interaction with your MIDI device like that produces a message. Output, on the other hand, is sent from your PC to your device. Something happens on your PC (as an example, you switch a scene in OBS) and that will send a message to your MIDI device to make it react in some way.

As a quick example of both of these: I pick a button on my Akai APC Mini device, and I want it to mute my microphone audio source in OBS. The button on the APC Mini also has a light in it, so I also want the button to light up to tell me that my mic is muted and to turn the light off when it is unmuted. In obs-midi-mg it would look as three separate messages bindings:
- Input message from my button to trigger "Toggle Source Mute" action in OBS
- Output message from my Mic Audio Source being muted in OBS to light up the button light on APC Mini
- Output message from my Mic Audio Source being UNmuted in OBS to turn off the button light on APC Mini

As for obs-midi-mg technicalities and what each action means, the difference between =, MIDI and "Adjust" - all of these are available in obs-midi-mg docs: https://github.com/nhielost/obs-midi-mg/blob/master/docs/operations.md

Last but not least - because there's as many types, models and makes of MIDI devices as you can possibly imagine, each of them will have a different way of addressing messages (those are the "Channel" and "Note #" on the Message area). For that, neither me, nor obs-midi-mg devs or anyone here can help you. You have to find specs for your MIDI device, read what they mean, how the buttons are addressed and direct obs-midi-mg accordingly. For my APC Mini I found this diagram: https://www.bome.com/wp-content/uploads/cma_attachments/1494878547803_APC-Mini.png and used it to "program" obs-midi-mg and APC Mini according to my preferences. Also remember that "Listen Once..." button is there to help you figure out at least the Input message part easily.

Good luck!

Totally excited about this:
"Media Sources time actions will now update based on the length of the source being played"

I'm gonna check it out right now!!!! :)

Returning to comment on this tweak:
"Media Sources time actions will now update based on the length of the source being played"
It does update and this is awesome! I did notice that for some reason, the max value doesn't correspond to the end time of the video but more like within maybe 10% (???) of the end. No matter, it overcomes the issued of scrubbing past the end of the video which is a really nice tweak. Love to see how the developer is improving this utility!

Returning once more to the topic of the tweak:
"Media Sources time actions will now update based on the length of the source being played"
This does seem to be working correctly for most videos. I think maybe it's not a bug but maybe has to do with encoding or key frames or something like that.

Anyway, huge improvement!!!!!

Using a diy Arduino controller. Misterdeck with the FkeysMIDI.ino if anyone is familiar. Link https://www.printables.com/model/134529-misterdeck. I can see my sliders changing the values in the setup page but nothing is changing in obs. Anyone able to help? I can post screenshots if needed just let me know! Thanks for the work, I appreciate it immensely. User error is my guess, typical lol.

I'm on a Mac M2 ARM. I tried the v3.0.0 beta 2 and OBS just crashes upon launch. I tried deleting the json file, but it still crashes instantly.

I'm including the Problem Detail and System Configuration issued for the Apple report and you can see the obs-midi-mg appearing just at the top of the log. I'm not sure how to read this, but maybe it is helpful for you. I've attached the full crash log as well.

Great plugin!

Feature Suggestions:
• Would love to see folders and organization options because my bindings are really piling up and I'm only on a ~40 key MIDI controller.
• Multiple actions per button would help in two ways, #1 obviously for doing more than one thing on a button press and #2 for doing 2 different actions on different filters/sources based on velocity rather than just the ability to toggle one thing off and on.
• Multiple buttons per binding would really be helpful so you could use an end key like a "Shift" to double your options and make extra use out of the quickly identifiable keys.

Question:
I need help understanding the Toggle mode for Velocity since it doesn't add a second action, can anyone show me an example of use?

I thought I was the only one this has been happening too.. lol. I haven't heard from no-one to troubleshoot the problem, hopefully they can have this fix
