TouchOSC | Control interface

Updated: Mar 07, 2015

This is an example of what the TouchOSC control surface view looks like.

All of the control elements you see on this page can be arranged and configured freely using the TouchOSC Editor application, which we'll discuss later on, and the layout of this part will probably be very different depending on which TouchOSC layout you decide to load. However, at the very top there are some controls that do stay somewhat the same no matter what layout you have loaded, so let's focus on them:

Most space is being used to display one or more larger, rounded rectangular buttons, one of which is always highlighted. This is TouchOSC's Tab-bar and it allows you to switch between the different pages a layout may provide. The number of these buttons depends on how many pages a layout has, but there is always at least one.

To the right of the Tab-bar there's two small indicators. These indicate that OSC or MIDI messages are being sent (the upper indicator, green) or received (the lower indicator, red).

To the right of these two indicators there's one button labelled with an i symbol, which takes you back to TouchOSC's main configuration screen.
