Hook up multiple devices using max and touchOSC

    Jun 07 2011 | 6:56 pm
    Hey all! Let’s say i want to hook up 10 iPhones to 1 computer, using touchOSC on all the phones, sending osc data from each of the devices, and receiving oscdata on each of the devices (through a computer using max/MSP).
    I know how to hook everything up, and how to use the udpsend/receive stuff, but it takes forever to enter all the ip-adresses.
    Is there an easy way to get everything to work together - not having to enter all the ip-adresses in max+on all the iphones?
    I hope to hear from you guys! Thanks a lot!

      I never enter IP addresses on the computer or iDevice, I just use the hostname e.g. 'your-mac.local' or 'your-iphone.local'. That usually saves some time!

      is there anyway to set up a udpsend object to accept a blank input, so that the user, in a standalone patch, can enter the ip address themselves. then udpsend will then set its send path to that ip?

      udpsend accepts the message 'host' followed by either a hostname or ip address so prepend-ing the user's input with should work or use a message box with 'host $1'.

      hi, yes it does work and i have got that far - but how would i create a standalone - where that message box can be filled in by the user and then banged to the udpsend object to update it.... is it about selecting what is locked and unlocked in the standalone?
