But I'm hoping for a Kyma expert here. (I've asked on the Kyma list
for an OSC expert and not gotten far, so I decided to try the
reverse.) I was using the page you mentioned along with:
Kyma has very precise definitions for "Sound" and "Tool". Loosely
speaking a Sound is one of Kyma's components that can be patched to
other components, and accepts parameters, and a Tool is a SmallTalk
script with delusions of grandeur, composed within Kyma's interface,
which speaks communicates with the Paca (TM) digital signal processor
box. Tools have some limitations, and it was suggested on the Kyma
list that I might be able to overcome those by using OSC.
Prior to about a month ago, I hadn't heard of OSC, and I'm not an
electronic musician -- though I toy with the idea of finally learning
how to get started with Raspberry Pi's and Arduino's and will probably
try doing something audio. (I'm a programmer helping a research
scientist doing audiometric / psycho-acoustics research.)
So far, I've been able to use SuperCollider to query a Kyma Sound
about itself, and send MIDI notes to some Kyma Sounds. But I haven't
understood how to use the "Arbitrary OSC Messages" referred to in the
link above, to send file paths to Kyma, and I don't even know where to
begin making a Tool speak or listen to OSC.
Does that help clarify the question(s)?
