Traktor Control via Android devices using Touch OSC

It was just before New Years’ Eve 2013. I was due to DJ at Shenanigans and my USB controller was on its last legs.  Necessity drove me to come up with a controller that could allow me the same levels of freedom as before, but on a far more portable platform. There was a lot of work to be done, mostly research.

Eventually, I came up with a rudimentary prototype (using a Sony Miro as an initial platform) which served to both demonstrate that the theory was sound, and this was only the tip of the iceberg.  Further developments led to a second Android device being employed (A Samsung Galaxy Tab 3), and the Miro being replaced by a Galaxy S.

Subsequent investigations will discern whether the MIDI controllers could be modified as a remote input for either laser and/or lighting control – and how we would go about it…
