[PD] TouchOSC and Pure Data on OS X

My problem with TouchOSC was getting it to see my laptop. I haven't been
able to set up a network with just the laptop and TouchOSC (though I haven't
tried for a while) this is supposed to work though.

As far as using OSC in Pd check out the mrpeach library. It is awesome.

I'm sure it's possible to get the OSC data to come straight into Pd but in
regards to getting those messages all nice and neat and easy I recommend
OSCulator (I have no connection to guy making it, I just like it). It's
third party software. Very easy to use and works very well. It's OSX only.
I've used OSCulator for wiimotes and wacom tablets... I'm not really using
OSC at the moment, so I haven't had a chance to give TouchOSC a good going
over yet, but OSCulator does support TouchOSC.

Hope that helps.
