Several devices listening to the same udp port?

February 16, 2013 | 10:53 am

so I’m building a series of patches that speak OSC in a clever way. Right now I’m using [udpreceive 8000] for each patch, but the problem is that I would get the typical "there’s already something bound to port 8000" when opening a second instance.

I’d like the equivalent of having several [udpreceive 8000], except without locking down the port number. Does that make sense?

cheers.

I’m using the same udpreceive port in multiple patcher/device instances without any problem.

Can you give an example to reproduce the binding conflict?

hm.. Got maxforlive? sounds like you do – Open and edit a maxforlive patch with udpreceive in it, and comms to the patch will break. The multitude of open/closed/loaded patches means it’s kind of hard to provide a step-by-step…
