Re: OSC and I phones and Whiskers on kittens........


How are things progressing with OSC for you? Or has the Moog stolen all 
your cycles?

I've found TouchOSC and Missing Link fairly straightforward, but the way 
the LP-1 wants to parse incoming MIDI configuration commands is a bit 

Your volume, feedback, pan sliders in TouchOSC... are they track specific? 
Or must you explicitly select a track first?

I've got a template in progress that has 8 paired sliders (a vol and fdbk 
for each LP1 track), but in order to use them I have had to add an 
explicit "select track" pushbutton to each pair. So this looks like: 
Select track 1, use sliders for track 1; select track 3, use sliders for 
track 3; etc...

What I'd like to do is just use the sliders directly...
