This makes me wish that there was a way to specify which TCP port the
chuck VM listens to when invoked on the commandline. That way I can
chuck code at both VMs.
I suppose that OSC listeners on both VMs will work properly. I could
have nearly doubled the power of my granular synthesis project last
semester. *sigh* But you could easily set up an OSC inter-process
communication scheme between the two VMs and have one VM act as a
slave to the other. UDP is bad for maintaining state, since you can
easily lose packets. For the most part, though, I tend to just design
the system so that packet-loss isn't that important.
Let's here it for the creative mis-use of OSC!
