Supporting D & R Airlite

Post by WoCo1234 » 12 Jul 2015 08:17

Hi there,

Propp Frexx is a great program, compliments.

I was under the impressing that this broadcast mixer was already supported, but that is his big brother. It has a lot of the same features as the airence. Do you know if its possible to use the airence settings? (not sure on what port the airence works.)

If you can tell me how I can test/program it please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

No, the D&R Airlite has its own API and interface. I already got the API from A&R, but unfortunately (as it is pretty new) D&R didn't provide any documentation nor simulator with it.
So I am afraid it will take some more days until it is implemented.

A first implementation of the D&R Airlite GPIO interface has been implemented into the new and forthcoming v4.0 version!
You can download it here:
http://www.proppfrexx.radio42.com/downl ... te4000.zip

(more details about v4.0 can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1347)

Note, that this new v4.0 version now comes with a new “ProppFrexx GPIOClient.exe” application – which will be launched automatically if enabled (see general settings, section ‘GPIO/Remoting’).
For testing you might also start the “ProppFrexx GPIOClient.exe” application by its own (without starting ProppFrexx ONAIR).

When you start “ProppFrexx GPIOClient.exe” you can go to the D&R Airlite tab and then click on the 'Monitor...' button to test the settings...let me know if that works fine.


The D&R Airlite comes with the following additional (new) control-commands (see the User Manual for details):
EXEC_SEND_DRAIRLITE_SETLED <lednr>|<color>
EXEC_SEND_DRAIRLITE_SETLEDBLINK <lednr>|<colorOn>|<colorOff>|<speed>
EXEC_SEND_DRAIRLITE_SETTRACKSTATE <modulenr>|<state>

The lednr/modulenr must be between 1 and 16 (or 256 for all); color is 0=NONE, 1=RED, 2=GREEN; speed is 0=SLOW, 1=NORMAL, 2=FAST; the state is 0=STOPPED, 1=PLAYING, 2=ENDING.


The D&R Airlite mapping uses a module/track ID to identify the button/action being used:
1= Module1, Gpo1, OnAir1, CtrlSwitch-1A
2= Module2, Gpo2, OnAir2, CtrlSwitch-2A
3=Module3, CtrlSwitch-3A
...
8= Module8, CtrlSwitch-8A
9=Aux, CtrlSwitch-1B
10=Nonstop, CtrlSwitch-2B
11=OnAir, CtrlSwitch-3B
...
16=CtrlSwitch-8B
Actions, that do not have any module assigned use an ID value of 1.
