"Open Sound Control: A New Protocol for Communicating with Sound Synthesizers", by Matthew Wright and Adrian Freed [1997]

Presented by Marvin Humphrey, Software Consultant and in a past life, an Audio Mastering Engineer.

Abstract: "Open SoundControl is a new protocol for communication among computers, sound synthesizers, and other multimedia devices that is optimized for modern networking technology. Entities within a system are addressed individually by an open-ended URL-style symbolic naming scheme that includes a powerful pattern matching language to specify multiple recipients of a single message. We provide high resolution time tags and a mechanism for specifying groups of messages whose effects are to occur simultaneously. There is also a mechanism for dynamically querying an Open SoundControl system to find out its capabilities and documentation of its features.";idno=bbp2372.1997.033;format=pdf
