Summary: How to read data from controllers and sensors, and to control other applications, using the Open Sound Control (OSC) communications protocol.

This session is designed for Isadora users of all levels.


For this  session we dig deep into Open Sound Control (OSC), a protocol that allows Isadora devices and other programs to communicate with each other for real-time interactive control. You'll learn how to receive OSC and use it to control your patches, how to control other applications by sending them OSC messages they understand, how to create a custom layout for the incredibly useful control surface app TouchOSC.

We'll be using the OSC enabled apps TouchOSC (iOS/Android) and GyrOSC (iOS only) and FaceOSC (Mac/Win) during the demonstration. (TouchOSC and GyrOSC are not free, but I can highly recommend both for anyone seeking ways to sense a person's movement and orientation using a device.)
