Unattended installation of openFrameworks 0.12.0 on Raspberry PI 4

These are the instructions to get openFrameworks 0.12.0 on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspberry Pi OS 64 bit. These commands are based on a completely new system; meaning: your RPI just booted into an x-desktop for the first time from a freshly written sd-card or USB-stick. The process of downloading and building openFrameworks will take ~35 minutes. It’s completely unattended. At the end of the process you will be greeted with a running example-app.

sudo apt-get clean -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y

OSC to MIDI | Midi to OSC | Midi over Network

This tool acts as a helper between Midi and OSC. It allows you to receive OSC data and forward them to a Midi-device and/or (yes, simultaneously) vice versa. I somewhat accidentally discovered that you can use this tool to also transmit Midi data over network (over OSC). It’s based on openFrameworks. It works on Mac, Windows and probably on a Raspberry Pi. Source code and binaries for Mac and Windows are available on Github .

This app is based on openFrameworks. It is able to receive multiple Syphon streams, allows you to quad-warp them, reduces their resolution and sends everything out as another combined Syphon stream.

As an example I have a simple VDMX-setup that consists of 2 individual layers. Each layer is sent out via Syphon.
