TouchOSC template generator from Jamoma

These tools generate default templates for the touchosc controller software for iPad [http://hexler.net/software/touchosc] from the parameter declaration of a Jamoma module [http://jamoma.org] in a Max/MSP patch.

touchosc-from-jamoma-v0.1

For each parameter declared in a Jamoma module in a Max/MSP patch, a slider and a label is created that have the correct names, datatypes, and OSC string.  That way, everything is already there, and you only have to move things around to create your layout.

Three rows of sliders (maximum of 54) will be created in alphabetical order, and as a goodie, with each change of first letter, the slider colour will be cycled in order to group sliders by function. See below for an example generated layout:

(BTW: the label text encoding is base64, halfway correctly encoded by the patch.)

These patches are released as they are, mainly to show that it is possible, and because it was useful for me.  It might not apply to your needs and you’ll have to tweak the patches a lot.

You also need FTM&Co. from http://ftm.ircam.fr/.
