TouchOSC 1.9.0 for Android and iOS out now!

TouchOSC is a mobile phone app which enables users to control any Software via MIDI or OSC from their phones. TouchOSC was developed by hexler starting with an app for iOS, which made the iPhone very interesting as a controller device. It took a while since the last announcement (march ’12) to get the new version of TouchOSC out into the stores. Now TouchOSC 1.9.1 is available on the iPhone AND fully supported on Android!

TouchOSC is a modular OSC and MIDI control surface for Android or iOS and supports sending and receiving Open Sound Control and MIDI messages over Wi-Fi.

The application allows to remote control and receive feedback from software and hardware that implement the OSC or MIDI protocols such as Apple Logic Pro/Express, Ableton Live, Renoise, Pure Data, Max/MSP/Jitter, Max for Live, OSCulator, VDMX, Resolume Avenue/Arena, Modul8, Plogue Bidule, NI Traktor, NI Reaktor, Quartz Composer, Supercollider, vvvv, Derivative TouchDesigner, Isadora and many others.

The interface provides a number of customizable touch controls to send and receive messages:

Faders / Rotary controls / Encoder controls / Push buttons / Toggle buttons / XY pads / Multi-faders / Multi-push / Multi-toggles / Multi-xy pads / LEDs / Labels / Time & battery displays

Additionally the program can send Accelerometer data. The application comes with example layouts and completely custom layouts can be constructed using the free TouchOSC Editor application.

All you need to get it working are the TouchOSC app from iTunes or Google Play, the TouchOSC editor to build up your custom controller interface or to upload one of the example layout onto your phone, and TouchOSC Bridge to relay MIDI messages sent from TouchOSC to any MIDI capable application on your computer and vice versa.
