AudioCubes are shown in this video with the new free generative music app from Percussa, capable of generating complex melodies, using note intervals from the blues scale. Notes can be sent via MIDI to any compatible hardware or software such as the Operator synth in Ableton Live 8 in this example.
By adding cubes melodies can be added on top of each other. Rotate cubes to change number of notes played per bar, and place cubes next to each other to make them add to each other’s note intervals to create subtly changing melodies, which will continue to have a time and harmony relationship.
A short video showing a Percussa AudioCube controlling 4 synthetic voices in Ableton Live 8 (voice-vocosyn.adg preset). Hand movement around the cube’s four sensors determines the final mix of the 4 voice sounds which are placed in a loop at certain pitches.

A short jam by Celine on AudioCubes, using Ableton Live 8 with the operator synth. Visit the Percussa website at http://www.percussa.com/ to learn more about AudioCubes, the ultimate audiovisual live performance interface for Ableton Live and other MIDI compatible software and hardware. AudioCubes are wireless smart musical building blocks that are able to detect each other’s location and orientation. Colours can be controlled via MIDI from within Live.
“Emissions is a real-time soundscape generating instrument by Ableton Live content developer Puremagnetik (www.puremagnetik.com). It utilizes an array of textural ambiances, specifically designed for use with Percussa’s AudioCubes. It will morph, react and evolve depending on what the user (and the cubes!) decide to do.
AudioCubes are a tangible interface for creating music and sound. They interface seamlessly with your existing audio software giving you hands-on control in creating elements for music production, sound design and live performance.”

What do they do?
The cubes are wireless MIDI controllers that interact with each other. They can output controller data or MIDI notes based on their relative placement, on how they are rotated or by using them as proximity sensors.
The latest update of the Audio Cubes software includes full support for Reason’s remote technology, allowing for effortless integration with your favorite music software.
