Update: Resolume 7.8 – Control & Monitor Arena, Avenue and Wire via the REST-API

resolume 7.8 update

Resolume v7.8 introduces a major new feature: REST-API and built-in webserver, the most powerful way to monitor and control Avenue, Arena and Wire.  Plus there’s a few squashed bugs with this update as well.

What’s new in Resolume 7.8?

Here’s what Resolume has to say about the update:

With the REST-API and built-in webserver we’re introducing by far the most powerful way to monitor and control Avenue, Arena and Wire. With the REST-API you can get and set any parameter value in the composition and you can even get clip thumbnail images! Communication via the REST-API can be done in almost any programming language, but most importantly in Javascript. This way you can for instance control and monitor your composition and Wire patches via a web-page on a tablet or phone. Checkout this support article for all the details and links to the API documentation.

We have created a few examples that are very useful already. For Arena & Avenue there is a basic clip triggering webpage that is a great companion next to your MIDI controller to trigger your most important clips, you can easily identify them because they show the clip thumbnail and highlight when they are playing just like Avenue & Arena. There is also a basic recreation of the Arena & Avenue interface in a webpage to show that you can control almost anything.

For Wire there is a basic example that shows the input parameters for the current patch so you can preview and control it from any web browser, including your phone.

These examples are bundled with 7.8 and run out of the box but they are also open source projects so you can use them as a starting point for your own custom interfaces.
You enable the REST-API and webserver in the Preferences.
