How OSC timestamp can be used?

Hello all!

I have read a lot of text about Open Sound Control, but I can’t imagine, how OSC timestamp can be used. Does anyone used it in their projects?

I have. I’ve done a looper-type system that timestamps incoming OSC, and then lets you record and play it back in time.

Did you use any cnmat externals? Did you send out timestamped osc bundles?

hey dude, sorry I didn’t reply. No, I don’t send out the osc bundles at all, I use it to store later on for scrubbing through the incoming data.

Hey, thanks for coming back to this,
What I meant is: did you make something custom or stick to OSC specifications and did you use the CNMAT/odot stuff?
Why did you decide to timestamp things on the receive side?

I’m specifically avoiding cnmat/odot. Don’t need it, and I think it most times just complicates things.

Mine is a somewhat advanced multi-lemur setup, but I have very little need for sophisticated osc reception to my devices.

What I do is when I’m recording OSC I take the current song position (well, clock, essentially) into a coll, along with whatever OSC I’m working with, and then I can loop it back.

I see. thanks.
