Custom Companion Build for Yamaha and A&H

I have created a custom Companion build that includes my latest modules:

  • Yamaha-MIDI: a module to control the Yamaha CL/QL using MIDI over TCP.
  • Yamaha-RCP: a module to control Yamaha CL/QL, TF and Rivage consoles using the RCP protocol.
  • Allen-Heath-dLive-iLive: a module to control the Allen & Heath dLive and iLive consoles via direct TCP commands in addition to MIDI commands.

Please register on these forums for access to the forum and download links.

You’ll need to hit trust level 1 before you can get to the Builds forum to download!

HINT: Read some posts and threads. It’s a great way to learn more about what the companion modules do as well as get your trust level raised.

Registration is free, and registration is only to allow me to see what sort of popularity these builds get. I won’t be sending any spam, I promise!

A custom build of companion 2.4.0, dated Nov 8, 2022

Includes the new “v2” UI for companion and action “browser”!

Contents:

A MIDI module for the Yamaha CL/QL line…

If you’re using it with a console, just de-select “Use Editor” in config and set the IP address to the IP address of your CL/QL console.
Seems Companion needs re-starting sometimes to get things working, not really sure what that’s about yet.

Yamaha CL/QL, Rivage and TF module using the RCP protocol.

I have re-written this Companion RCP module from scratch. Had to teach myself JavaScript, figure out how to write a module for companion (with little documentation), and work out how to use GitHub. Not to mention learn how RCP works. Whew!
Post your experiences, bugs, suggestions, etc. in a new thread, please. (This one is locked to keep things clean)

Before installing, EXPORT YOUR EXISTING SETUP - I don’t want to be responsible for you losing your config!
