The official way for vvvv to talk to Ableton Live is to communicate via the OSC protocol to Max4Live patches running inside Live. Max4Live patches have almost full access to the software via Live API.

Examples in your vvvv\girlpower\ directory:

  • IO\Networking\2_Advanced (OSC)\04_Remote Player

vvvv can talk to Photoshop running on any networked machine. Images can be sent to and requested from Photoshop.

Photoshop understands JavaScript (manipulate Layers, Groups, SmartObjects, Filters, Adjustment and Text layers; Open/Save/Export documents, ... you name it), vvvv offers a simple way to send these commands and receive responses.

The convenient Photoshop (EX9.Texture) automatically pulls an image from Photoshop when any change was made to a document.

...for each database

vvvv is able to communicate with a range of databases.

You must have access to a database, which can be on your local computer, in a LAN or somewhere in the depth of the internet. If you do not have access yet, the easiest thing would be setting up a mysql database (server) on a local computer.

Server (VVVV)

Kontrolleur is an open source general purpose remote controlling app for Android written in Processing. It displays (using simple autolayout) interface elements (slider, button,...) that are being pushed to it via OSC by vvvv (or any other host) and sends back values to given OSC addresses.

Check the helppatch for the Kontrolleur (Network) node to learn how to use it.
