MSA Remote is a remote control application for iPhone & iPod Touch that sends OSC messages over the wifi network. This allows you to control any OSC supporting applications such as Max/MSP/Jitter, PureData, Reaktor, VDMX, vvvv, Resolume, Quartz Composer etc.
By mapping the OSC to midi on desktop (e.g. using PD or OSCulator) allows further control of any application which supports midi such as Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic Pro, 3DSMax etc. In addition, developers can easily integrate OSC into their applications knowing it can be controlled remotely.
- Multitouch information sent using standard TUIO protocol for instant integration with existing TUIO clients

- 64 faders (8 pages of 8 faders)
- 64 triggers (8 pages of 8 triggers)
- 108 key (9 octaves) VELOCITY SENSITIVE polyphonic keyboard. Yes, the harder you hit the keys, the greater the velocity of the note.

The application can be distributed to visitors, guests, members of the public etc. to interact with an installation or performance, or used by dedicated performers.
Quite good indeed.
Through the use of OSCulator, I was able to easily control a keyboard in Ableton Live. And unlike in TouchOSC, I didn't have to map every single key ahead of time, it has a keyboard already there. (There may be a simple way to do this in TouchOSC I just can't figure it out and the person has yet to write me back.)
That said, I did a back-to-back comparison of this and TouchOSC and, in my experience, there was more of a delay with this one than the Touch. This could be something I am doing wrong, but all I know if that with the same phone, computer and network, there was a more noticable lag on this one as opposed to TouchOSC. Still, this one is cheaper so and it was somewhat negligible. I guess you pay what you get for.
Overall I heartily endorse this product!
