MOSToolkit for Python: Feature and Support Classes and Modules

Version History
                                    January 2022


Features and support classes and modules for Python development. MOSToolkit assumes Python v3.

Core classes include:

  • mosOSC.MOSOSC :: Unified API for Open Sound Control (OSC) including timestamped logging, logic for unhandled OSC paths, support for delayed bundles. Wrapper of python-osc module, version 1.8.0.
  • mosRTcmix.MOSRTcmix :: Enable arbitrary OSC messages to trigger and parametrize RTcmix scores. Extend MOSOSC to support CMIX OSCData format.

Support modules include:

  • mosClass :: Collection of utility classes.
  • mosDump :: Reflection on collections and objects.
  • mosLog :: Ready made, context specific logging for scripts, modules and classes. Built upon logging module.
  • mosMusic :: Generate scales and ornaments within a scale.
  • mosZ :: Encapsulate common operations for script development and shell interaction.

Additional support code includes:

  • cmix :: Libraries and support for RTcmix sound design, including OSCData and DiskMemory.

Find demos in demos/.



MOSOSC provides a simple, unified API that implements client and server interfaces to Open Sound Control (OSC). MOSOSC is a wrapper around, version 1.8.0.

Each instance of MOSOSC may run as client or server. Use multiple instances to create multiple clients and servers. demo includes...

  • Create and destroy client
  • Send messages and bundles
  • Send nested bundles, bundles with delays
  • Composable message and bundle content creation
  • Optional automatic OSC path logging per send, including delay status demo includes...

  • Creating and destroying the server
  • Starting and stopping the server
  • Adding, removing, listing OSC path handlers
  • Passing user arguments to handlers
  • Convenience method for parsing and logging handler inputs
  • Default handler and optional default handler function
  • Multiple matching handlers
  • OSC event logging optionally with millisecond timestamps or client source
  • Attributes to configure OSC path logging, default handler, and more
  • Managing server control via OSC

See demos/MOSOSC, class headers and pydoc for more details.



MOSRTcmix enables real-time controls via Open Sound Control (OSC) to trigger and parametrize sounds defined by RTcmix scores. In this way, MOSRTcmix separates sound design (original score) from the performance (OSC data). This is possible, whether or not CMIX is built to receive OSC messages.

MOSRTcmix translates an OSC message into a list format supported by MinC which is then injected into an active score.

Try the demo (below) or see a video of the demo (in the same directory).
