Has anyone has success in using TouchOSC and perhaps Lemur with the XR18?
I'm shifting the mixing duties from my Macbook/Firewire setup with Reaper to the XR18 for mixing, the Macbook for backing tracks and synths.
In order to control my whole system, I used Lemur (bandmates setup with TouchOSC) to control Reaper via OSC which was very easy to set setup with both Lemur and TouchOSC.
With the XR18, I can only get TouchOSC to send data, which the XR18 receives, but does not send corresponding data back to TouchOSC. Lemur simply doesn't seem to work.
I am trying to build separate AUX sends for each performer, from which, they control a preset of sliders related to their headphone mix. I know the commands to be sent but when using TouchOSC, I can see the slider move on X Edit, but when I move the slider in X Edit, I do not see the response on OSC client.
With Lemur, I'm trying to be a little more sophisticated. I want to continue using the template I have with Reaper (controls song selections), but add an additional OSC interface (OSC1) to send mixing commands to the XR18.
I wouldn't claim to be an OSC expert, but I've worked with it and Reaper for several years now with several OSC clients, so I've run into the usual networking and data structure issues.
The XR18 is stumping me...I can't get TouchOSC to receive data, nothing from Lemur.
Any luck with your own OSC attempts using these clients?

I managed to get it working with PD

Ideally, I'd like to create a relay which bridges TouchOSC (for a custom and concise interface) to the XR18 via Pd. I can send commands from TouchOSC through Pd and see a response on the XR18, but nothing from the XR18 returns.
My setup uses an external router to which both my Mac and XR18 are tethered with static addresses.
I would appreciate it if you would share your Pd file, or explain the process.

That's great that you got it working but what exactly did you get working? Would you be willing to share your .touchosc and .pd files as an example?

That's led me to another idea... What about a TouchOSC relay that could communicate with both the XR18 and TouchOSC. One side of the program would carry on a dialog with the XR18 using UDP port 10024 while the other side of the program would converse with TouchOSC via UDP 8000 and 9000. OSC messages coming from TouchOSC would be relayed to the XR and parameter changes from XR would be relayed to TouchOSC. There could even be a translation layer that allowed for say, a single TouchOSC object to control a number of controls within the XR.
