Grassi Box – Analysis

July 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Grassi Box is a MIDI-to-relay piece of hardware (built by Dan Wilson of Circitfied) based on an Arduino teensy and some accompanying software tools built in Max. The idea is to be able to control a variety of my ciat-lonbarde instruments from a computer.

In this video the audio from the guitar is being analyzed (in real-time) to find the nearest preset/combination/permutation from a set of 6884 pre-analyzed presets.
