OSCulator Like Rosetta Stone Of Mac Music Software

Want to try controlling your music software with something new?

OSCulator may be the solution. It’s a Mac program that you can use to allow alternative controllers, like the Wiimote, to control MIDI sequencers, your favorite console emulator or Kyma sound design workstation.

Here’s a video demonstrating using the Wiimote in Kyma:

OSCulator is a free download.

  • added the ability to edit multiple lines at once
  • added the ability to “split” an input in two (from 0 to 0.5 and 0.5 to 1) in order to get two events from that range from 0 to 1. for example, you can use it with a joystick and assign an event for both directions of an axis.
  • added the ability to “demux” a message based on the value of an argument (useful for TUIO protocol and Iannix software)
