As the title suggests, I am trying to understand how to create a wire patch that:
1. Receives OSC Messages
2. Adjusts the values (Normalise/smooth/etc.)
3. Sends these OSC Messages into Arena to control parameters on other sources/effects
I can get this to work when the patch is open in Wire, but I cannot get it to work when the patch is open in Arena only (E.G. Wire application is not running).
To get it to work when Wire is open I set Wire preferences to use OSC input on port 7001 and OSC output on port 7000, and set Arena preferences to use OSC Input on port 7000. This works great when the patch is open in Wire.
When the patch is open in Arena (and wire is closed), the Arena preferences do not let you send and receive OSC on the same port - so it is not possible to receive OSC into the patch and also send OSC messages from the patch to control parameters in Arena.
Does anyone have a workaround within Arena to achieve this?
I have seen a number of posts suggest using a third party software like chatagine to receive the OSC messages sent from the patch and loop them back into Arena (via a different port) but this seems like a messy solution to achieve a simple outcome to me...
