But is OSC obligatorily usable with tablet or smartphone ? I really hate touch screen devices ! I'm reading a ebook for experimenting and it is awful !! It's heavy but I must hold it in my hands, so it zooms sundenly, jumps to 3 pages after but I need to hold it, there is no place for my fingers, sometimes they just touch the screen and...f..g sh...it. :evil: The screen is ful of finger traces. Une vraie merde.

I'd like to use it just to replace midi at least for modulating signals. AND WITHOUT TABLET !

you can use it with anything, it is a server :) but i also think u should give the android control another chance, i too had some controllers on phone/tablet like 5-6 years ago, and the interfaces themselves have come a long long way. as long as its not extreme low end crappy tablet or something then it is both very responsive, very stable and fun. i still say try it, but again it is a server and a client and works with anything.

Most of the DAWs have good OSC support now. To answer your question from above, I wouldn't recommend for very timing critical needs, but it should work very well for parameter automation. Unfortunately there's always some level of delay due to scope's async implementation, but it's fairly small (a few tens of milliseconds).

Wifi itself and even internet in general can have excellent latency, just depends on setup. First person shooter games are very demanding on latency too 😁

i can vouch for the way my own apps behave with osc using will's scope osc core and using my own java built pc side osc core - faster or as fast as midi

So... With your devices... Can I just send & receive modulation signals between Scope and some vst's that support OSC without need of android ?

I've added some documentation describing the use of these two modules here: https://github.com/bcmodular/scopesync/ ... DK-Modules. There's also a new release with minor performance and stability improvements. Download it from here: https://github.com/bcmodular/scopeosc/releases

New release (0.1.2-beta) of ScopeOSC modules available now here: https://github.com/bcmodular/scopeosc/releases. This doesn't affect the main functionality, but will be required for the upcoming ScopeSync 0.6.0 release, which is slowly but surely on its way!

Documentation Wiki is also updated to reflect the changes: https://github.com/bcmodular/scopeosc/wiki and has been moved from the ScopeSync Wiki, which is now closed down, as I will be putting together documentation for the new release at http://www.scopesync.co.uk
