Midibox and OSC

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know if it's possible to build a Midibox64, which I'm currently planning to do (if I can get my hands on a GM5x5x5) and make it send the data into the computer via OSC? My friend told me that it would be more low-cost, CPU-wise maybe, but also regarding the multiple channels that are coming in. Does it make sense?

Regardless of all these pro and cons, does anyone know if it's possible to make the Midibox speak with Open Sound Control?

Best regards,

Daniel

There are already available applications which use OSC, such as:

http://svnmios.midibox.org/listing.php?repname=svn.mios32&path=%2Ftrunk%2Fapps%2Fexamples%2Fethernet%2Fosc%2F

and

http://svnmios.midibox.org/listing.php?repname=svn.mios32&path=%2Ftrunk%2Fapps%2Fmisc%2Fusb_osc_midi_cv_proxy%2F

I also started a documentation (for MBSEQ V4, but it's valid for other OSC applications as well):

Note that your friend is wrong, OSC isn't more low-cost (performance and pricewise)

Best Regards, Thorsten.

I think his point was that MIDI isn't very effective at spitting multiple parameters into the computer at once. And then there's the resolution..

But thanks for the links, it looks very promising - at least for a future extension!
