Always when to think outside the box when it comes to live production, deadmau5 has unveiled OSC/PILOT making it available to the public. This application was used for years by deadmau5 on tour as his control surface for shows.

OSC/PILOT is a bi-directional control surface application originally built as a performance tool that allows digital audio and visual artists to control the content of any space with data from any other space.
