Capacitive Paint Touch Controller

June 30, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Using Bare Conductive paint and Arduino as a musical interface for my modular synthesizer.

I have been playing with Bare Conductive paint since it came out a little more than a year ago. It’s great stuff – a heavy acrylic paint that can be used as a resistor, touch sensor, paintable wire – and I keep coming up with new uses for it. This idea stemmed from wanting to utilize my modular synth in more of an installation setting than a performance music setting.

I think of this as a sort of “sonic self-portrait.” Two 10″x10″ canvases painted yellow with my hand prints painted in conductive paint. A small piece of copper tape is attached to the back of each canvas and connected to Arduino. Code on the Arduino turns the canvases into capacitive sensors and sends two channels of 0-5V PWM voltage out through RC filters into the modular synthesizer. In short: touch the painting, send modulations to the synthesizer.

The Arduino sketch uses Paul Badger‘s CapSense library. I had to use an older build of the Arduino programmer (alpha 22) in order to get the library working. You can find the most recent version of the code here: GitHub. Circuit and patch descriptions below the audio.

iTRIGGER – new MIDI controller app for iPad

June 21, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

iTRIGGER is a midi controller app for iPad. It allows you to control Ableton Live and other DJ software using your iPad over a wireless or usb connection. It allows you to launch clips and scenes and control many other features of Ableton.

POJ Studios enter the app world with iTRIGGER, a grid-based MIDI controller for iPad. It is designed specifically for use with Ableton Live but also works with other music software. iTRIGGER allows bi-directional communication to mix music, launch clips, change parameters like levels and panning, and provides feedback to the user through the multi-coloured grid display.

When the user first connects iTRIGGER to their computer either by WIFI or a compatible iPad midi accessory iTRIGGER becomes a standard x-y midi controller allowing the user to assign the buttons as they wish. Once iTRIGGER is correctly synced with Ableton Live all of the buttons are automatically assigned and lit up by the software in 4 separate modes, selectable within the app:

  • ‘CLIPS’ mode: The 8×8 grid is assigned to an 8×8 area of clips from Live’s ‘Session View’ with the buttons lighting up to signify whether a clip is loaded, playing or empty. The user can navigate their way around Live’s ‘Session View’ using the directional buttons in the top corner of iTRIGGER and press the corresponding button to play clips or scenes using the scene play buttons at the end of each row.
  • MISC’ mode: A miscellaneous set of controls including track levels, panning, effect levels, enable/disable track, cue track and track record.
  • ‘D.RACK’ mode: For playing instruments using the 4×4 drum rack layout.
  • ‘X-Y’ mode: For custom assignment using an X-Y layout.

iTRIGGER supports AirPlay to stream video performances live to compatible devices via WiFi. The app’s background and button colours can be changed and the button images can be completely hidden against a black background for light shows.

iTRIGGER will be available in all regions from JUNE 22, 2013 exclusively on the iPad App Store. iTRIGGER will have a special week long launch price of $2.99 USD (priced accordingly in other regions) returning to the standard price of $7.99 USD on June 29.
