O2: Rethinking Open Sound Control

O2 is a new communication protocol and implementation for music systems that aims to replace Open Sound Control (OSC). O2 owes much of its design to OSC and is mostly compatible with and similar to OSC, but O2 has important additional features. A great strength of OSC is that it addresses the problem of inter-process communication with a minimum of complexity. However, many users routinely deal with problems of interconnection in dynamically configured local networks, unreliable message delivery, and clock synchronization. O2 solves these problems, offering named services, automatic network address discovery, clock synchronization, and a reliable message delivery option, as well as inter-operability with existing OSC libraries and applications.
