Atlas can output to up to 5 network interfaces, IP Addresses and ports for a given External Device. Select the "+" button next to the port text field to add additional network interfaces per device.

Default String

Defines the default string presented for an external device when first added to the cuestack.


Defines the OSC string that Atlas will send to the external device when the Atlas workspace is panicked. Leaving blank means Atlas will send no command upon panic.


Atlas holds a list of predefined OSC Templates for manufacturers OSC integration. Selecting one of these templates will populate the OSC string with appropriate strings for the selected manufacturers device.

If the device you want to require is not listed it is very easy to add your own control strings for your chosen hardware. "New Template" will allow you to add your own commands to the device.

If there is a common device you'd like to see added to the "templates" please email us with a reference to those commands on support@flamingosoftware.co.uk
