include Open Sound Control (OSC) in VST3

Post by marclingk » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:43 pm


I plan to write a multichannel-VST-plugin that responds to OSC. Are there any examples that can be studied? Any experiences with that stuff somewhere?

i have no useful example, but you have to take care how you will use the UDP protocol, especially how to handle threading,
if you want to control parameters, you have to do it in the editcontroller part (UI Thread), if it is for processing part be sure that you will have no conflict with the RealTime Processing thread and handle UDP message in a separate thread.
Read some doc about UDP: ... col-udp-rt

my 2 cents
