Kinect WiiMote Ableton Midi Over IP – soon as Open source
Alistair keeps feeding us with nice updates on the Kinect WiiMote solution
After battling against slow laptops and extreme latency, I’ve started turning this demo into a cluster system with different operations being farmed out to different machines, it could be the only audio application that has had it’s latency reduced by sending Midi messages over TCP/IP.
The demo only has one of the instruments connected, the green bar at the side. The little horizontal lines across the bar are the lower stave (bass clef) and can active Midi Notes. The other box does nothing, instead a wiimote is used to tune synth parameters.
Ableton Live is being used as the output device, it’s not quite the right thing for this, a software synth is preferable.
PS. Alistair also tells me this:
Just cracked getting the WiiMote and Kinect and Ableton to co-operate together making music by using midi over IP, will be releasing an open source version in February so people can collaberate making music over the net
