oF + flosc = MIDI in Flash

I spent a day working out the workflow of getting openFrameworks talking to Flash. So as a test project I decided to attempt to get MIDI messages from my MIDI controller into Flash. This was something I wanted to do a few years ago but didn’t have the technical know-how.

For this setup I am using Flosc, openFrameworks and Flash. Flosc is a Flash gateway for sending and receiving OSC (Open Sound Control) messages. The visuals were thrown together in a couple of minutes so aren’t great.

The circles sizes change according to the velocity of a specific key on the MIDI controller.
