TWO is what’s best described as a Media Control Workstation.
It enables the interactive combination of live signals, recorded and key-framed sequences, and your own live changes using on-screen controls, of digital media control data (currently OSC & MIDI).
You may already be using sequencer applications to record, play back, and interpolate. Control apps to build GUI’s for sending signals. Or data-flow / patching programs to map signals from sources to destinations.
TWO does the above, and uniquely, it integrates all into one coherent whole, so the tools can interrelate instead of each standing alone, oblivious of the existence of the other.
Crucially, TWO is a user-friendly GUI Application, not a programming environment.
TWO available for public testing!
Head over to the Downloads page to grab the installer, for Windows and OS X.
Record and replay streams of messages, from any number of sources, to any number of destinations.
Unlike other OSC sequencers, TWO allows recording any incoming message, irrespective of whether its address pattern is known and expected or not.
Record raw data from software and sensors – then add a modifying, optionally interpolating layer of sequenced value changes as an additional layer on top, instead of modifying the originally recorded data!
Just as is common with professional Motion Capture software.
Smoothly transition between saved states, thus having direct control of the animation across large sets of parameters during performance.
Comprehensive OSC Namespace Management
Automatically build the namespace of messages for any device, so that you have the complete namespace also of devices which do not support OSC Query.
Support for OSC Query, meaning complex OSC namespaces can be discovered instantly.
Save the state (presets) of individual devices, groups of devices, or even your entire set-up.
Connections & Mapping
Gradually create, alter and destroy fine-grained connections, between all devices capable of transmitting and/or receiving MIDI and OSC.
The change in connections can even be animated on the timeline!
Features for mapping at high and low levels of granularity: route between entire separate OSC servers in Router, or map in detail, between distinct OSC messages in Matrix.
GUI for remote-controlling multiple targets
Quickly remote control all software and devices that can receive MIDI and OSC.
In the Editor, each column is a separate target.
And unlike other controller software, TWO does not require that you first design a GUI, before being able to start using your devices!
- A clear multi-pane user interface.
- infinite undo-redo.
- Designed from the ground-up for both mouse and multi-touch use.
Open Sound Control
