Receiving OSC

All of Timeliners current values are being sent via UDP using the OSC protocoll. Specify a target IP address (default: ie. localhost) and a port (default: 4444) via Main Menu -> OSC.

All values are sent in one OSC-Bundle. The individual messages addresses comprise of the specified "Prefix" + the pinname. e.g.:

  • /timeliner/Value 0
  • /timeliner/String 0

In addition the current time is sent via:

  • /timeliner/time

Sending OSC

TimelinerSA can be remote controlled via OSC commands. It listenes to commands sent to the port set via the "Receive Port" numberbox in the interface (which defaults to 5555).

Send the commands to the "Prefix" + the command you like to controll. e.g.:

play: takes 0 (pause) or 1 (play) as argument

/timeliner/play 1

stop: no arguments


seek: takes a single floating point value to specify the time to seek to

/timeliner/seek 0.234

loop: takes two floating point values to specify the loops in and out points

/timeliner/loop 0.456 1.234

Web Access

Navigate to with your browser to see a list of available timelines.

If you want to access a timeline other than via localhost make sure to run TimelinerSA.exe as admin.

Building Timeliner from Source

The Timeliner.sln requires Posh to be cloned right next to the Timeliner\ directory. That should be it.
