VST And OSC


OscVstBridge is a VST plug-in that, as the name implies, bridges VST data to the Open Sound Control [OSC] network domain.
VST plug-ins 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. This is illustrated below:

OscVstBridge uses jVSTwRapper a wrapper that enables VST plugin development using JAVA. OscVstBridge also uses the NetUtil OSC library in JAVA. Uses:
  • 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.
