Sorry for the silence didn’t know you posted
I’m not a Grasshopper user so I’m going to make some educated guesses at this point. As I understand it the gHowl components above give Grasshopper (& co) a bit of extendibility for communication and data reading outside the norm.
As Antokhio points out it could be possible to send numbers straight in and seeing if they can be read.
The reason I mentioned the OSC stuff and bundling in particular is two-fold:
- When you’re shifting quite a lot of different individual ‘slices’ of data its a pretty good method for compressing it down. Its partly why its seen as a good replacement for midi (loads of keys playing varying pressures for instance)
- If OSC is understood on the Grasshopper (GH) side it should just kinda work.
Ant’s right, though; OSC’s got a pretty funny syntax I don’t really wanna go into, but all the while if you get the data into and out of it your laughing.
So I’ve re-jigged Ant’s patch to give you an idea of what’s going on.
doesn’t leave you with much left to do really, but it might be helpful for prosperity. It’s got some notes about how OSC works but I hopefully haven’t gone into too much detail. There’s a basic explaination about spreads there too.
