Send a string of characters OSC message over the network (OSC tag
This module can be added directly to the grid with a drag&drop from the browser.
Usine can receive and send OSC messages from/to the network.
This allows communication between all the computers connected to the network or on Internet.
An OSC message contains 3 parts.
/. For example
,) followed by a set of characters which represents the type of the data's. For example
,b. As an OSC message can contain several data's at the same time the tag can be
,ffffor 3 float,
,iibfor 2 integers and an array.
For example an OSC message can look like:
Osc address string of the message.
Be careful, the OSC address string is key sensitive.
It mean that
/USINE/ is not equal to
IP address of the remote computer (to send data).
Active only if the broadcast option is OFF.
broadcast or not ?
In OSC when you want to send a data to another computer you normally have to know the network (IP) address of the destination. Something like
The problem is that, by default, routers are configured to allocate IP addresses dynamically. In other word their IP aren't fixed and can change if, for example, you have to reboot one of your computer or your router. When broadcast is ON data's are sent to all the computers of the network at the same time whatever their IP address. So you don't have to deal with IP addresses and you're sure that all the computers will receive the message.
The main drawback is that if you have 20 computers connected you'll probably overload the network.
So if we resume broadcast ON is cool for small networks, let say, less than 10 computers. For larger networks, disable this option (OFF) and use the IP address field to set the destination of the message.
Remote Port destination number of the message.
Sends the message when it recieves a 1 trigger.
Data values to send.
