Is Electra One able to handle OSC ?
Just found out that newest beta of Loopy Pro 1.1 does have now OSC.
Is Electra One able to handle OSC ?
Hello anyone out there?
No idea, never used nor encountered OSC
Hello .There is no ip adresses/network/protocol/port on the E1 . No ethernet ,internet, wifi .
But , The E1 is specialized in controlling midi and do that in a truely original way. That’s already big.
And yes, when i see the E1 i can imagine a future with a V2 with the OSC Protocol integrated . That would be incredible.midi&OSC in one gear . For now, i really enjoy the beast . It’s the most advanced autonomous midi controller i have tested .by far.
PS : if you want an OSC controler , i have the original djazz mutant lemur. An incredible machine . So sad about what they have done of it but the orignal machine is incredible . Perhaps you can find one somewhere ?
The idea is as follows. When there is a multi-client driver available (based on Bome drivers), it will, at some point, implement a TCP/IP server that will act as a OSC server. The actual communication between the OSC server (computer) and the USB controller will stay USB MIDI, providing the OSC messages will be wrapped in MIDI USB packets. It feels like the most rational solution to me. I have done some research on making Electra a USB Network device with TCP server running on it - it does not seem worth doing.
if that happens, let me know. You neve know what wonders it might bring to the table !
. Just full respect .
Just read about OSC, and discovered it’s a UDP/IP protocol over ethernet. Allthough that sounds promising, never forget the ethernet was designed to maximize the chances of arrival of any message (it originates after all from the cold war’s ARPANET with the intention to survive an atomic holocaust if most of its nodes would be lost), and not for minimizing latency. So allthough OSC could allow you to send MIDI like messages over bigger distances, it’ll still suffer from the necessary buffering to ensure all messages will arrive in the right order. Using it for joint real time music playing over big distances, I’m afraid will proof to be very challenging. But in case you have full control over the network path between all parties concerned (which actually means using it in a LAN environment) it can work!
The UDP communication would take place only internally (on the same computer) between Electra’s OSC server and the OSC based software. That should be pretty safe and I guess most of the OSC messages fit single UDP packet.
And that would be super fast as well !
A (no longer maintained) Ableton remote script for the iPad (touchAble by ZeroDebug) was based on OSC.
Touchable was so good . I followed them since the first iteration of touchable . It’s really sad they totaly disappeared . The app is really really cool and had a lot of potential to
You certainly know Clyphx to ( ClyphX Pro | nativeKONTROL | Advanced Ableton Live Control )? Stray did an incredible midi script for Ableton and it support OSC to .
There is also a new midi script that is developped for OSC to : GitHub - ideoforms/AbletonOSC: MIDI remote script to control Ableton Live 11 via Open Sound Control (OSC)
… And it is really promising to !
All works with live 11 and above .
… I imagine thoses scripts with the E1 …
I also like LK by Imaginando Ableton Live & Midi Controller for iOS and Android - LK | Imaginando The UI is much better designed than touchAble (but lacks on features somewhat).
I’ve found TouchOSC to be a nice way of giving outdated smartphones and tablets a new purpose.
Apologies if this is a little bit off topic…
