Using the audio control GUI

How to start and use the audio control GUI example

The audio control GUI is written in Python and should run in all systems that have Python3. However, since it uses tkinter and the native support of tkinter on some platforms is not perfect, there may occur problems. The application is verified to work on Ubuntu 22.04.

It is started with: ./

First connect to an open TCP port on an acl-tcpcontrolpanel by setting the correct IP/hostname and port under “Mixer network address”. Once connected, use the “Add strip” and “Remove strip” buttons to add and remove volume strips. Then map the audio of each strip. Select the “Slot” of the connected (video) source you want to take the audio from. Then select which channel in the source to find the audio (or to find the L channel in case of stereo, the R channel will be assumed to be the next channel) and if the strip should be a mono or stereo strip. The name of the strip can be changed by clicking on it and editing it.

Once everything is set up, the configuration can be saved with the “Save” and “Save as…” buttons. The configuration is stored as a json file.
