Send matrices to a jit.net.recv object via TCP/IP


Use jit.net.send to send matrices and messages over a network connection to an instance of jit.net.recv.

Information for Jitter Matrix Operator (MOP) messages and attributes to this object


int Equivalent to anything.
float Equivalent to anything.
anything matrix-name [symbol]
Any message sent in the object's right inlet is output by the middle outlet of the connected jit.net.recv.


Name Type g/s Description
connected int Whether or not the object is currently connected to a jit.net.recv server.
host symbol The domain name to form a connection with (default = localhost)
ip symbol The IP address to form a connection with (default =, the local loopback)
latency float An estimate of the time between a matrix being input to the jit.net.send object and being output from the corresponding jit.net.recv.
nagle int Toggles the use of Nagle's algorithm flag (default is 0/off). Improves network efficiency for small packet sizes, though at the possible expense of latency.
port int The port to use when creating the connection (default = 7474)
report int Toggles the report connected flag (default is 1/on). When enabled, the jit.net.recv object will report connection information out the dumpout outlet.
