The Open Sound Control Reference Platform for Embedded Devices

micro-OSC (uOSC) is a firmware runtime system for embedded platforms designed to remain as small as possible while also supporting evolving trends in sensor interfaces such as regulated 3.3 Volt high-resolution sensors, mixed analog and digital multi-rate sensor interfacing, n > 8-bit data formats.

uOSC supports the Open Sound Control protocol directly on the microprocessor, and the completeness of this implementation serves as a functional reference platform for research and development of the OSC protocol.

The design philosophy of micro-OSC is “by musicians, for musicians”—it is used at CNMAT as a component in prototypes of new sensor-based musical instruments as well as a research platform for the study of realtime protocols and signal-quality issues related to musical gestures.
