Devices

To use interactions or data-tracks, you may need to configure your devices.
 To do so, open the device-panel by pressing CMD+K.


MIDI

This tab allows you to enable or disable the MIDI sources and destinations :


It also features settings to receive MIDI Show Control (MSC) :

  • GO without a Q-number : it goes to the next column or play the timeline
  • GO with a Q-number : it launches the Nth column on the current board (or a the column whose title is beginning with Q-number)
  • GO with a Q-number and a Q-list : it launches the Nth column on the Nth board
  • STOP : it stops the board or pauses the timeline

OSC

OSC is a protocol to control Millumin or send data to another application. It is widely supported by softwares, and as it uses the network, it can communicate with another computer.


The input port is a very important setting, as this is the port that Millumin uses to receive OSC data from other application.

The API feedback option allows Millumin to sends OSC data to other applications, via the listed OSC servers below. Indeed, Millumin will automatically send OSC feedback when a column is launched, the opacity of a layer changes, … More info in this article : OSC API

The OSC servers can also be used in data-track to send special OSC, see dedicated article : Data-track

DMX

In this tab, you can configure or create various devices to receive or send DMX data.
 There are 3 protocols to do so : Artnet, sACN and USB DMX.


Artnet

Enable and choose this interface :


Millumin supports various Artnet devices, such as :


For info, Millumin is suitable for Artnet V1 and V2, not V3 or V4.
 By default, Artnet works in broadcast mode, but you can set it as unicast for more control over it :


sACN

This is a protocol similar to Artnet, but please note that the first universe is 1 (for Artnet it is zero).
 Enable and choose this interface :


USB DMX

Click the + button to add such a device, then select the serial in the list :


Millumin supports various DMX USB devices. It has been tested with the following :


Open-DMX USB

These devices (such as Enttec Open DMX USB) are not directly supported on Apple M1/M2 architectures, but you can run Millumin via Rosetta to do so.
 Also, they create a conflict with standard USB DMX devices, so you need to activate the Special Open-DMX mode the from the gear icon :

Please note that we do not recommend Open-DMX USB devices, as they are non standard.

Electronic

This tab allows you to configure Arduino™ or Teensy electronic devices :


Millumin supports most common models for these devices :

Once configured, you can program the device in Millumin without coding anything.

Timecode

Please refer to this dedicated article to learn more about timecode : Timecodes

Network

This tab manages all devices related to network (except OSC, Artnet and sACN that have their own tab) :


Each kind of device has its purpose and its own properties :

Other

This last tab shows various devices, especially the ones activated by the addons.
