deadmau5 Launches OSC/PAR, a New Performance Tool for Digital Artists and Musicians

AU/VST3® PLUGIN AVAILABLE NOW AT WWW.OSCPILOT.COM

World-renowned electronic music producer deadmau5 has announced his latest technical product OSC/PAR is available now.  OSC/PAR is an AU/VST3 plugin for macOS and Windows that broadcasts your real-time musical events from your favorite DAW into any OSC-capable client over the network. The plugin sends out your transport information, MIDI notes played, automation events and even your song list as they happen during live playback. Those events are converted to OSC messages that can be received in a VJ app or other musical devices for a very interactive live session using WIFI or a local network connection.

“OSC/PAR was originally developed as an essential need for a stage to FOH networking solution,” shares deadmau5. “I’m actually pretty stoked to be sharing this with everyone as a handy little tool for all your DAW to OSC needs.”

For a full overview regarding connection, OSC address space, macros, MIDI, transport and song list XML, log on to: OSC/PAR DOCS | OSC/PILOT

The OSC/PAR plugin retails for $19.99 and can be purchased at https://oscpilot.com/ 

OSC/PAR accompanies OSC/PILOT–a bi-directional control surface application originally built as a performance tool for digital artists and musicians which was used for years by deadmau5 on tour as his control surface for shows. As the overlap between audio and visual application space continues to grow, there is a need for a simple way to control these applications in a desktop application. Interoperability between the applications at the artist’s disposal (AbletonLive, TouchDesigner, MaxMSP, Processing, Bitwig etc.) allows digital audio and visual artists to control the content of any space with data from any other space. OSC/PILOT aims to provide an easy way to build UIs for this control. In addition, the huge amounts of display options gives the artists both their choice of canvas, as well as their choice of how to drive the content to that canvas. OSC/PILOT is a robust and simple tool to harness the interoperability and enable this kind of control. View the demo now at:
