    I’m not against OSC on dLive, but I’d be interested in knowing what people think the advantage would be. Are there tools people like to use that support OSC and not MIDI? I have done a little coding on both X32 OSC and dLive TCP MIDI. I prefer some aspects of each over the other.

    OSC definitely looks to be the future standard for audio / video system communication as it is much more flexible and easier to program, so it would be a fantastic addition to the range.

    OSC vs. MIDI

    We are now using OSC on projects where, in the past, we would have used MIDI. OSC is infinitely granular and bundled UDP messages occur simultaneously, continuously, and nonstop; where MIDI is limited to steps and divisions because it supports a very limited range of values. With OSC you can transmit multiple data types like 32-bit integers, floating point numbers, strings and more; while MIDI only transmits 1-byte integers 0-255. MIDI uses a compact binary message format with a limited number of fields. OSC uses a human readable, URL-style address format and can send data in forms of words or numbers. OSC also includes a picosecond-resolution timestamp while the MIDI beat-clock is low-resolution with a precision of about 20,833 microseconds. To boot, the OSC data rate is Gigabit speed while the MIDI data rate is only around 31,250 bits per second!
