Read from many TC-08

Post by gepponline » Tue Nov 30, 2010 3:37 pm

Hi another problem...
i have 4 TC-08 and i like to read all of them.
I found no function to indicate from which one i'm going to read samples and nothing that indicates to me which i'm reading.


Can anyone help me?

You need to use usb_tc08_get_unit_info to read back the unit information including the serial number of each of 4 units, to determine which handle belongs to each unit.

I can read from the "usb_tc08_get_formatted_info" the info of the TC-08, but HOW can I open more than one unit.
At the monet i use these steps:
1) open unit (i have 2 units connected but only one is going to be opened)
2) get formatted input
3) close unit


This sequence is wrong 'cause i have to disconnect unit every time i read info to make it read it the next time.
What i have to do?

You will need to call Open_unit twice, to allocate a handle for each unit.

These handles are then used on all subsequent calls to control the units they correspond to.

Use the get_formatted_info function to get back the unit serial number corresponding to the handle passed.
