    Hi Guys,
    I am looking into sending messages in this format over OSC:
    /midi,m
    The important bit is the ,m to set the osc value type to m for midi.
    udpsend doesn't seem to use value types at all and I am having difficulty seeing how to do this with CNMATS OpenSoundControl object.
    So I thought how about using the FullPacket functionality but cannot find out much info on how to build one of these packets.
    Has anyone got any pointers for a poor confused man?
    Thanks
    Andy

      ,m is a "nonstandard argument type." I've never seen it implemented anywhere.
      The OpenSoundControl object converts Max messages into OSC packets, and vice versa. It only handles ints, floats, strings and blobs. Maybe someone at CNMAT can get you the source code for that, if you want to see how the packets are constructed.
