Input from multiple iOS devices

January 23, 2011 | 5:27 pm

Is there a way in Max to receive and respond to multiple wireless iOS devices (iPhone and iPod Touch) as controllers? I’d like to develop a patch that tracks the input of about 10 iOS users at once. Do any of the existing OSC control app’s allow this, or perhaps could something be developed for Airport Extreme?

I’d appreciate any ideas on how to approach this. I’ve searched the forum for info this, but could not find anything that looked useful.

TouchOSC will do this.

yes I think you just need each iOS device to send to a different port (same IP for host machine). You’d need as many udpreceive objects as you have controllers, each with the corresponding port.

I think. :)

with the amazing app c74 you can do it too.
it is not only a layer with buttons to control max/msp, but a bridge between your iphone/ipodtouch and max/msp that take advantage of all sensors and capabilities of your device (accelerometer, compass, gps, proximity and microphone). and it´s been updated recently with wonderful adds! (i just love this app).

Thanks very much for your suggestions on this. I plan to try both c74 and touchOSC.

Best regards,
