Data-tracks allow you to send data from Millumin to other applications or devices.
 It works both in the dashboard and in timelines.


First of all, a data-track is displayed in the dashboard, in the same fashion as layers :

To create one, click the triangle icon on the bottom-left corner of the dashboard :

Then you can configure the data-track to prepare the kind of signal you want to send. By default, Millumin configure the data-track to send MIDI data :

If you want to test your data-track, press the send test button to send a default MIDI signal. You can also check what signals are sent via the Monitor .

To finish, you need to enter commands in the dashboard, so Millumin will send the data everytime a column is launched :

The available commands depends on the mode of the data-track. Examples are displayed in the command templates lines :

Continuous Signal

By default, the method of the data-track is set to command, but you can change it for continuous signal :

Indeed, while commands are executed once when the column is launched, the continuous signals follow the column’s transitions. It is like sending the same signal, but you can make vary smoothly the value of the signal everytime you launch a column :

And in timeline, you can animate the signal over time. This can be handy to make evolve some parameter for another application :


The mode of the data-track is the kind of signal that will be sent :

Each mode has its own properties to be configured, but the principle is exactly the same the one described for MIDI.

In Timelines

You can also create data-tracks in timelines. This is exactly the same as in the dashboard, except that flags will be used :

Of course, if you set the method as continuous signal, you will be able to use keyframes instead :

Useful String Commands

Many devices and services can be controlled via a simple string sent via TCP, thus via a Millumin data-track.
 Here are some templates.

Barco HDX Series projector

Use TCP and port 43680 (documentation).

  • Open Shutter
  • Close Shutter
  • Lamp On
  • Lamp Off

Barco E2

Use TCP and port 9876 (see this post on the forum).

  • Recall a Preset
    <System id="0" GUID="123456789abc-123456" OPID="-1">
           <PresetMgr id="0">

Christie HS Series projector

Use TCP and port 3002 (documentation).

  • Open Shutter
     (SHU 0)
  • Close Shutter
     (SHU 1)
  • Power Off
     (PWR 0)
  • Power On
     (PWR 1)
