Headtracker OSC with Waves NX + NXOSC


I’ve recently found this application https://audiooo.com/nxosc by Katsuhiro Chiba.
All info is in japanese but in short it’s a Waves Nx headtracker hack, and it works on MacOS.
So i thought, great I could use that to have Nuendo track my head, right?
Well not that easy it seems, i can’t figure it out. I probably need to use max msp to run a patch that converts the raw osc data to meaningful data.
but thte biggest problem is, what data does Nuendo need? I’ve fiddled with the setttings but the OSC server does not respond.
I see that it uses Headpose firmware 1.0 but cannot find that app…

anyone knowledgeable here that can help out.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

would also be interested in that.

Intend to also use the Waves NX Head Tracker to control VST Multipanner (via MidiOX).

Have already TouchOSC running on an Android tablet. Connects to the WinPC running the OSC-Bridge. The bridge is the receiving side, which listens on a certain network port for the controls being sent from the tablet.

The missing bit is perhaps a piece of software (NX2OSC), which picks up the head tracking data from the NX device, and converts it to OSC data. This could then be received by the OSC-Bridge.
