// Example of OSC control of Hydra video synth w/Orca programming language

// https://github.com/hundredrabbits/Orca
// https://github.com/ojack/hydra
// https://github.com/ojack/hydra-examples
// https://atom.io/packages/atom-hydra
//
// Prerequisites: Orca, Atom, Atom-hydra extension
//
// Open Atom, save and name as a .js file, and toggle atom-hydra from the packages menu
//
// Press CTRL+Alt+Enter to run this entire block of code in Hydra
//
// Orca section is at the bottom
//
// First, setup some handlers for Orca->Hydra communication
//
// set port to listen to osc messages.
// 49162 is the default OSC port that Orca sends from
msg.setPort(49162)
//init a single letter object for Hydra to use & to match the msg we send from Orca
z = [0,0,0,0]
//update on msg received
msg.on('/z', (args) => { z = args })
// end setup
//
// reference this object in hydra with indices

.diff(shape(2,0,()=>z[1]*0.1))
.scale(()=>(z[0]*z[2])*0.1)
