Bome MIDI Translator Pro for Camera Tethering

This page is part of the av_studio collection.

I previously discussed how important camera tethering was. I also discussed my decision to purchase two Panasonic Lumix S5 camera bodies along with two prime lenses. While I await the arrival of the camera equipment, here is a first attempt at a Bome MIDI Translator Pro project, which would act as a master application, driving Pro Tools, OBS Studio and eventually the Panasonic Lumix Tethering program.

At present, the project file:

  1. Focuses on OBS Studio
  2. Starts OBS Studio recording using Ctrl-Shift-Z, a custom keystroke that I defined.
  3. Focuses on Pro Tools
  4. Rewinds Pro Tools to the start of the project
  5. Starts Pro Tools recording

Here is the project file:

; ------- Bome MIDI Translator: signed project file
; ------- You can modify this file as you like, but that will invalidate the
; ------- signature so that it cannot be opened in the BomeBox or MT Player anymore.
