Using Xbox 360 as an OSC controller

December 12, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This demo, by Anton Crnkovic, demonstrates using an XBox 360 controller as an OSC music controller.

I have wanted to do something creative with a game controller ever since I first discovered the [human interface] object in Max. And as soon as the new Nodes object was released I thought a great implementation would be to use it with some sort of joystick.

I’m using MaxMSP to receive all the control data from an XBox 360 controller and converting it to OSC messages to be used with any program that accepts OSC, in this case Reaktor. I’ve made each message range scalable as well, for fine tuning control possibilities.

I added 9 nodes for each joystick which gave me 11 control parameters (including XY) for each joystick! It was a little unpredictable to know what kinds of results that would achieve but that was the fun part :)
I pretty much randomly assigned all the controls to this ring modulating synth and buffer effect Buffeater. Fun times.

Max for Live version in progress as well which will use Abletons device parameter control API. Will post when I have time to finish it.
