So, I had the idea the Processing should be running on tablet devices and used as an interface to control Pd patches on a pc (or mac, don’t read too much into it) via OSC . I have used some of the “design your own interface” apps like TouchOSC, Lemur, and my favorite Control. I still haven’t found the one that’ll give me the power to design the exact interface I want. That’s where I want Processing to fill the gap, but there’s just one problem: Processing.js DOES NOT support the use of external libraries!
This means that I won’t be able to use the OSCp5 library to communicate between the custom interface I could design with Processing.js and Pd. I had previously mentioned my interest in using Pd+Processing but so far I’m still limited by hardware (I have an iPad and not an Android tablet) .
Now, in comes PR0C0D1N6, with it’s wretched name. It’s a port of Processing.js to iOS. Which is great, except that it still doesn’t include the use of external libraries. But… there’s a possibility the OSC will be added to the features of the app! Which is exactly what I’m waiting for. If any one else is interested this, please let him know using the PR0C0D1N6 forum.
Back to multitouch in Processing. Since, PR0C0D1N6 is open source, the example sketches that run in the app are available on GitHub. I’ve taken the Touch.pde example and modified it slightly to include mouse actions as well, called it and viola! Multitouch added to the header on this site.
Now allz I need is that damned OSC.
