deadmau5 releases new plugin for music producers and digital artists – EDM.com
deadmau5 has released their latest performance tool, a plugin called OSC/PAR.
OSC/PAR is an AU/VST3 plug-in developed to bridge the gap between live DAW (digital audio workstation) performance and OSC (open sound control) protocol interoperability. From its simplistic user interface, the tool is able to stream live music from any DAW and seamlessly channel it through OSC-enabled clients via WIFI or local network connection, translating the MIDI notes, song list and other transport information for VJ software. .
“OSC/PAR was originally developed as a critical need for a scene networking solution at FOH,” said deadmau5 in a press release issued to announce the plugin. “I’m actually quite happy to share this with everyone as a handy little tool for all your DAW to OSC needs.
Last summer deadmau5 released OSC/PILOT, a control surface application that was previously exclusive to their live performances. Originally designed as a control surface unit for its broadcasts, the tool was made available to the music production community to provide a simplified and fully customizable user interface.
OSC/PAR retails for $19.99 and can be purchased here. You can find a full overview of the plugin via its microsite.
