OSC to Send

Use this abstraction to send information to any send/receive path in your patch. Designed for quick and easy access via apps such as TouchOSC (http://hexler.net/software/touchosc) or Lemur (http://liine.net/en/products/lemur/), or communication from other applications supporting OSC.

Create an interface object in the app of your choice. Prepend your message with a string of your choosing (e.g. /send/) using OpenSoundControl formatting. Use “custom address” in Lemur or turn “auto” off in the TouchOSC editor to do this.

This string should be included as an argument (without backslashes) when you create the osctosend object. Follow this with the name of your send path…e.g. /send/something [message]

Requires osc-route (http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/patch/4029).

This abstraction was developed as a quick way to expand my current project, Mipilan (http://ardisson.net/gamelan/mipilan) by creating supplementary patches to be opened from the standalone application.
