MidiOSC now available on GitHub

11 January 2010

MidiOSC, the MIDI to OSC bridge that I've been beavering away on for the past couple of months, is now available for download on GitHub. I wrote it in response to the messed up state of MIDI support in Java on OSX. I do a lot of work with Processing and external hardware that talks MIDI so having things break at random when the OS was upgraded wasn't a good thing for me. Now I can just fire up MidiOSC and spit data in a modern format into any language with an OSC library (C, Java, Ruby, Python, Scala...). My sequencer for the Novation Launchpad and, likely, a lot of things I do in the future are only going to talk OSC so I thought I'd better make it available sooner rather than later. More on the sequencer soon...
