Locus Streamer (2008/2009)

cette page est en cours de rédaction / This page is under construction / página en construcción

En parallèle du développement du patch Puredata pour les machines des streamers et pour la Streambox, nous avons programmé une application stand-alone, le Locus Streamer, qui nécessite l’installation d’aucun autre logiciel, pour les systèmes osX. Il permet de streamer à partir de sa machine portable en utilisant les ressources habituelles (carte son interne ou externe, WiFi, micro interne ou line input).
