This is a proposal for a standardized namespace within OSC.

Its main application is for controlling Synthesizers, therefore the name “SYN”.

It should have all the possibilities of MIDI (except MIDI show control and similar exotic functions - unless necessary) and beyond. It is not an “OSC-wrapped MIDI protocol” but a completely new system which has no concern for 7bit MIDI messages.

Implementation Details

Platform(s): Any / Platform Independent

Features: Wildcard Matching Support

Supported OSC types: i: int32, b: blob, T: true, F: false, N: null

Transport support: None / Transport Independent
