Are there any working OSCIIbot examples out there ?
All of these useful examples are on the Reaper forum or close to it

- Peavey StudioMix control surface from Banned
- AKAI MIDIMIX control surface from goldenarpharazon
- original example script from Justin (from Midi2OSC - see previous answer)
- simple examples are bundled with the OSCII-bot install zip file itself

.g. BCF2000 like in the other thread.

Here I need a different thing: having OSCIIBot attach via OSC to an external device, while communicating with Reaper (i.e. JSFX programs) on the same box via Midi.
The examples happen to be with Reaper. But OSCII-bot is a bridge that will translate between OSC and Midi for anything at all, without any dependence on Reaper, or the OSC functionality in Reaper.

The OSCII-bot EEL2 allows file I/O which could be used to create a separate config file if that's preferable. OSCII-bot also allows a basic GUI to be created.

- in certain intervals send "register" requests to the mixer to make it send out the values of these parameter whenever they get changed by different sites.
If these parameters or requests are OSC you can assemble and send, or receive and parse any OSC string you wish or need in OSCII-bot EEL2

Be interested to see this Python code please too, since it may be extensible to also handle OSC translation into Midi SysEX which OSCII-bot does not handle. Thanks.
