Flip technology

Flip is a core technology that we developed in order to create Ohm Studio, which we think is probably the most advanced real time collaborative application so far.

Flip is a data model library, designed as a framework, real-time collaboration-oriented, transactional, portable and compact.

Here is a video that explains when and why you should use it, and how it works. This video is mainly designed for applications makers, especially developers.

Overview

  • Real-time collaboration-oriented data model framework library
  • Single-user development turns automatically into a multi-user application only by following our good practices and design rules
  • Undo/Redo and history are automatically handled
  • Copy/Paste can be automatic or refined to your needs very simply
  • Performant Lock-free multi-threaded/multi-process oriented architecture.
  • Transactional
  • Server side is limited to data model code, making it less prone to bugs (no bug found in our Ohm Studio server data model client side implementation over 5 years without specific care)
  • High stability: only 2 bugs (framework side) discovered in the server over the last 2 years.
  • High performance oriented, extensible, validated and future-proof document format.

Flip is a data model library, designed as a framework, real-time collaboration-oriented, transactional, portable and compact.

Client development in C++

  • Portable C++ code (standard library, no external dependencies)
  • Development under: gcc4.0 or later, VC8 or later
  • Platform: Windows, MacOS X, Linux (tested as server only) and can be easily ported to iOS or Android.

Creative minds just love the Ohm Force plugins... Especially the Quad Frohmage, full of sonic delights for today's head!

Life without many of their plugins is not worth thinking about. Always the first group of plugins I go to when looking for inspiration.

Ohm Force allows you to tap into uncharted soundscapes with their fresh perspective on music and technology. Their products are truly inspiring.

Producer, w/ Alanis Morissette, Eminem, RATM, etc.

I started with Frohmage [...] and then gradually bought the rest. My favourites are OhmBoyz, Predatohm and now Symptohm, but I use them all...

Grammy award producer, w/ Coldplay, Madonna, etc.

I must say, I love this particular filter [Quad Frohmage] as it is manic but it can also be used to create subtle textures. (from 'The Art of Drum Layering')
