I currently have TouchOSC communicating with Osculator — and I'm trying to send my Osculator signals to the NodeBox receive_osc node. Can you kindly show how to configure the OSC receive_osc node? Thank in advance.

    Here's a short tutorial on how to listen to OSC events:

    1. In Preferences, make sure "Device Support" is checked. Restart NodeBox if needed.
    2. In File > Devices, create a OSC device. In the first field (where it says "-1" enter the port NodeBox should listen to). Press start. (You can also enable auto-start if you want to start the OSC listener automatically when the file is opened).
    3. On your device, use the same port to send to.
    4. In NodeBox, create a "Receive OSC" node. Leave the device name as-is. Optionally, change the address prefix to only listen to messages under an address (by default it listens to everything).
    5. If you want the arguments to have names, you can fill them in under the "arguments" port. For example, if you receive events with an x,y coordinate, use "x,y" (without the quotes) in the arguments field.

    I've included an example that uses PD to send OSC events.
