This package offers an implementation of the Tuio protocol, a Tuio client and Tuio demonstration programs to work with the reacTIVision computer vision system for tracking physical objects in real time. Tuio for Squeak allows the construction of tangible user interfaces using fiducial markers on physical objects. This allows the rapid development of table-based tangible user interfaces (TUI) and multi-touch interactive surfaces. By Simon Holland.
Open Sound Control for Squeak version 5.5. includes enhancements, fixes & new unit tests to support bundles, intensive input & the Tuio protocol for Reactivision, and new unit tests.
This software now forms part of the tool kit underpinning research prototypes and demos for the OU Pervasive Interaction Research Group. Revised version by Simon Holland. Original versions by Markus Galli. (4028 downloads as of Jan 2010)

4 HexA Dynamic Tonality MIDI sequencer—it uses a rotating lattice to make the MIDI sequencing of microtonal music as straightforward as it is for 12-tone equal temperament (a sort of SONAR/Cubase/Logic for microtonalists). By Andrew Milne and Anthony Prechtl.
5 2032A Dynamic Tonality physical modelling synthesizer—uses modal synthesis to model string and pipe sounds. The underlying note tuning can be changed (dynamically), and the partials of each tone can be tuned to match the underlying tuning. By Andrew Milne and Anthony Prechtl.
6 RelayerRelayer enables musicians who play the AXiS-49, the QWERTY computer keyboard, or the Thummer, to play in a wide variety of isomorphic note layouts and tunings (even with a standard multitimbral synth). By Andrew Milne.
7. PitchMetricsA package of MATLAB routines to calculate the pitch domain distance between pitch collections (such as chords, melodies, scales, tunings, virtual pitches, or spectral pitches). Some of these routines were used to generate the figures and data in Milne, A. J., Sethares, W. A., Laney, R., & Sharp, D. B. (2011). Modelling the similarity of pitch collections with expectation tensors. Journal of Mathematics and Music, 5(1), 1–20. By Andrew Milne and William Sethares.
