stock OSC sender/listener

d3lray's picture

Hi, Im trying to leave behind hexler's qcOSC plugin and go full apple stock patches for OSC, but I am having trouble getting smooooth values through it. Please see attached patches. Why are these not buttery smooth values when passed through just a simple localhost pipe? Of course I get the same results over a network - but Im a little baffled. Has anyone got smooth values through OSC (im inclined to believe, yes, since I dont really see any posts saying otherwise.)

All help, advice, tips n tricks are welcome ;)

Try adjusting the frequency of the OSC send patch to 0hz in the settings panel, that'll smoothen things up!

... or try the Mänsteri OSC Tools available at

It's made with a hacked version of VVOSC, if I didn't misunderstood... Works very well...

Though your test shouldn't, the hexler plugin addresses an issue QC has with OSC values continuously jumping back to 0. I wish this was fixed in QC. I haven't tried Lion....
