mix16 Patch

Oct 19 2009 | 8:05 pm


I’m using this patch at the moment with TouchOSC, now I can send data to TouchOSC from Max but when I change the sliders in TouchOSC I get no reponse from Max, but I know Max is receiving as I am using udptester.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I assume that you have gotten the CNMAT objects?

If not, at the above link, get the link labeled "Everything for Max OSX (Mach / Universal Binary)". Unzip the files and then placed them into Max5’s path. If you put them into the "/Applications/Max5/patches/" folder, it should work.

You will want to make sure that the "outgoing" port on TouchOSC is set to the same value as the port set in the
[udpreceive] object in Max.

Also, you’ll want to get the computer’s IP address and make sure that this IP address is in the "Host" setting for TouchOSC.

After getting the IP address to correspond to the "Host" setting, try setting the Port (outgoing) in TouchOSC to something like 8002, and then create a new patcher that looks like this:

[udpreceive 8002]
[print OSC]

When you move a slider in TouchOSC, the Max window should print a message.

If that works, make sure that the Max patch’s receiving port matches TouchOSC’s Port (outgoing).

From your report it looks like you have the Max patch’s sending port matching TouchOSC’s Port (incoming).

Hope this is helpful,

I’ve just downloaded the CNMAT objects now, what are they for?

Also I have all the ports & IP address set properly, I know that I am receiving from TouchOSC to Max by running UDP Tester.

But still the sliders do not change.

Thanks for your help.

I believe the CNMAT objects include [OSCroute]. I’m not sure exactly which other objects are needed, however.

It is strange that it is still not working for you. I have a short tutorial on setting up the iPhone/iPod Touch, TouchOSC and Max/MSP. Several people have reported that it helped them get everything working. If you want to see a copy, send an email to me:

Hi Mitch,

Thanks for your help,

I’ve extracted the CNMAT package, and all seems to be working now, I am able to send and recieve data now.

But it might be useful if you email me the tutorial anyway as I am new to all this.

Hi Mitch,

I Hope you or someone else can help me again,

I have created my own template for TouchOSC, and am now trying to make a patch for it by using some parts of the mix16 patch, the bit I’m getting stuck on is the p page1rec object, I can’t get this bit working?

This is really just a subpatcher called page1rec (page 1 receive). I used the subpatcher just for screen aesthetics and for organization.

Every thing having to do with the messages coming from page one of the TouchOSC program are sent to this subpatcher.
