    1. I’ve been using OSCulator for this. There might be other software doing the same. It has to be something outside of Ableton Live that translates the OSC to MIDI.

  1. Is there a list of the parameters and syntax of the OSC messages that we can send to Ableton? I’m trying to control with Mac the tempo reproduction of a MIDI track that’s playing in Ableton
