udpreceive, OSC and the Lemur

    Nov 07 2006 | 8:08 pm
    Hello all,
    I'm looking for the kindly help one needs when they feel that are clearly missing the obvious. I'm testing OSC use with the Lemur communicating through udpreceive, and I am sending information which Max is reading. However, I'm having problems with the content of that information.
    I'm using a Fader controller on the Lemur, and everything I try produces "error: number: doesn't understand [tecxt string of the address from the Lemur Fader]." Whether I use Custom Address and edit the address, or the default, I keep producing error messages and cannot get x data correctly into Max, the text strings keep screwing up the numbers. I'm sure I'm missing some address syntax, but can't find it. Anyone know the solution to this problem?

      An OSC message is usually presented as a string address (such as
      "myfader/x") followed by a list of values. A number box will not know
      what to do with this address string, so you will need strip it off. I
      recommend using the [route] object, or CNMAT's osc-route to accomplish this.

      Thanks Andrew, I had just discovered that for myself. Like I said, an obvious mistake that I kept looking at but couldn't see!
      Thanks again,
