Hey guys. I'm more or less a beginner with pd and am trying to get along with sysex-output-messages to control my akai fire via pd.
While I was able to light up the pads and buttons via sysex (just hex data converted to decimals and then straight to midiout) I can't get the oled-display to display text or bitmaps. I found this article https://blog.segger.com/decoding-the-akai-fire-part-3/ and realised that there is actually a commercial m4l script that manages the whole thing ( https://isotonikstudios.com/product/crossfire/ ). Can anybody enlighten me? I'm gonna build a standalone groovebox with the akai fire and a raspberry pi or a beaglebone and this is the last bit that's missing to start. By the way I've done something similar with a korg nanokontrol (without display) - more information and a short video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9y939Eq3nh/
Apart from that I'd also be happy to gather some information about controlling an oled display from pd in general. All the best!
