LANdini: a networking utility for LAN-based computer music ensembles
This is a current project of mine. My laptop group,
Sideband, has been looking
for a networking utility to smooth out the unpredictability of OSC
communication over wireless networks, and I finally wrote one. It
is currently implemented in SuperCollider, and exists as a standalone
application for Mac OS 10.6+, though I plan to make a future version
that will be comfortably cross-platform.
I would love to hear feedback from interested
parties - I've made an effort to include suitable documentation such
that anyone should be able to get up and running with it.

you don't want to download the full package)

test patches in ChucK, and a SuperCollider class

Music Computing conference in Stockholm. An updated version from
my presentatino at the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium will
be appeaing in an upcoming edition of eContact.
patches written in Processing, for easy LANdini
testing. These apps are bundled with Java built-in, which is large
but more transportable. (80 MB)
