The RC studio is driven by OpenSoundControl. OSC is a protocol for communication among computers, sound synthesizers and other multimedia devices that are optimized for modern networking technology. Within the design of the RC studio only OSC-messages are used to communicate with the external computer. An OSC-message consists of three parts: an OSC address-tag, an OSC type-tag and the OSC argument(s). The figure below shows the generic OSC-message that is used for driving the studio.
