OSC BASICS



  • Hi. I'm trying to do a basic Master/Slave relationship over OSC. Both computers are Macs and both Master and Slave are running Isadora, and are connected via ethernet. I have OSC Transmit in the Master computer and I have entered the Slaves' address in 'udp address.' I'm not able to see a connection yet. Can anybody help me? 

    Cheers,

    Jamie

    Stay tuned. Sending screenshots.

    Also, when I've done this, I've connected both computers to an ethernet switch or wireless router via Cat6 cable. (Still collecting screenshots)



  • @woland The anticipation is killing me... haha

     Have you tried Isadora's 'Net Broadcaster' for your master/slave set up. You only need the computers on the same network and use the combination of Net Broadcaster and Listener actors to assigned channels.

    Hope that helps. Feel free to ask me any questions. I'm fairly certain those are all the steps I took, but my second computer and router are packed away at the moment, so I can't do a test-build as confirmation.

    I have also used the Net Broadcaster in the past, but once had an issue with it right before a tech, then taught myself how to do OSC and reprogrammed both computers' Patches to replace the Net Broadcasters with OSC Transmit actors, fell in love with the custom labels (which help in telling what a particular channel is for), and never looked back.

    Both are viable options, I just enjoy the customization that OSC allows.

    If you're going the Net Broadcaster route, all of the networking steps in Sections 1 and 2 still hold true, it's just section 3 that you'd ignore.

  • WOW! Thanks so much for this. Very thorough indeed. I will fill you in on my results.

    No problem. Also, I can't seem to leave anything unfinished, so...

    Oh that is interesting, what was the issue do you recall?

    Setting up static ip addresses is a good idea. Sometimes, when working with lots of network devices that include auto IP addresses, you just have to make sure you start-up your devices in the right sequence otherwise you risk ip address conflicts. Thanks for articulating the walk through steps very handy.

    @bonemap

    I never figured out what the issue was. We'd gone a few months between tour stops, and when we sat down, the Net Broadcaster setup just wasn't working anymore, so I tried OSC for the first time. I was pressed for time, so I didn't explore it thoroughly. Thinking back on it, after converting everything to OSC, I seem to remember positing that it might have had something to do with me having a newer version on my personal Mac Pro (trash can) than the second Mac Pro had.

    Never did figure it out, but I found a solution, so that's all that mattered to me. 

    Best wishes,

    Now to begin the arduous process of putting all these photos into a post on my website and writing out actual steps. *sigh*


  • Beta Gold

    It's not done, but this'll be the link for the post on my site pertaining to Lan, OSC, and Net Broadcasters:
    https://lucaswilsonspiro.wordp...

    It's. So. Detailed.

    (Why do I do this to myself?) 

    Best wishes,

    Woland

    Edit: I'll probably break this into three or four separate posts, but keep the master post with all of the information as well.



  • @woland Okay good and bad. I was able to get the Net Broadcaster to work but not the Osc. I've attached my screen shots to show you my set up.

    @jamie-nesbitt

    Try checking the “Auto-Detect Input” box in the Stream Setup Window.

  • @woland I did and nothing.
