[PD] OSC problem

hi Csaba - i have done a fair amount of work with OSC in Unity and i highly
recommend the extOSC plugin for this (it's free).

homemade OSC sounds cool but there are a lot of flavors and not all of them
play well with PD. i tried a number of options and what worked on receive
in PD was the following:

[iemnet/udpreceive] (with the port set at loadbang) -> [oscparse] - [list
trim] and then [route] to send it places.

what worked on send to Unity was this: [oscformat (parameter) (value)] ->
[list prepend send] -> [list trim] -> [netsend -u -b] (with the connect
message to the address and port on loadbang).

i'm sure that might sound kludgy and terrible to experienced folks but the
receiving setup works perfectly for me and [netreceive] absolutely did NOT
work, under any configuration. haven't tested the sending option but it did
work in the past.

happy to include a screenshot if you need it.
