OSC messages to kyma come in as unmapped

+2 votes

When I try to send OSC to my Pacarana the messages come in as unmapped if I only have one argument.

If I instead have two arguments it works fine. I've tried both from Max but also running it past Osculator to see if it made any difference. And if I in osculator duplicate the argument, so the osc message has the same argument twice, the message shows up in the eventlog. But if I only send one argument Kyma says *unmapped*.

What does this *unmapped* mean? And why does it behave like this? It happens for both float and integer arguments.

See below for details

*unmapped* means that the value was not saved by the Paca(rana) since the OSC message is not currently being used by the VCS. Once you have mapped the message in the VCS, then you will be able to see the argument value in the log.

For multiple argument OSC messages, the Paca(rana) has to save each value so that it can be used individually in the VCS.
