ByteWeavers OscVstBridge

ByteWeavers has released version 1.0 of OscVstBridge, a VST plug-in that bridges VST data to the Open Sound Control [OSC] network domain.

VST plugins typically have parameters that are controllable by the user. These parameters appear as the knobs and sliders or as MIDI CC. By using OscVstBridge you can control via your midi controller or VST sequencer OSC devices that are networked to the controlling computer. Similarly OSC controllers can send messages to OscVstBridge that will convert it to VST parameter or MIDI data.

By combining the above two setups, VST data or MIDI data can be transported between networked computers. This achieves the same purpose as MIDI over IP systems except that OSC is used as the musical data protocol over the IP network.

Uses of OscVstBridge

  • MIDI to OSC converter
    MIDI messages can be converted into OSC messages by sending MIDI controller information via your VST host to OscVstBridge.
  • OSC to MIDI converter
    OSC controlling devices can direct OSC messages to OscVstBridge from which the data will be made available to the VST host and connected MIDI devices.

OscVstBridge is available for any platform with Java JDK1.5 or higher.
