I just ran across a post from Create Digital Motion talking about the new software for the iPeople out there – a controller application that lets you interface with programs like Ableton Live and VDMX. The software is called MSA Remote. My fascination with these programs stems from a large scale belief in light art created by a handful of users in a group, perhaps collectively designing a show's lighting or video – don't get me wrong, I'm all for showcasing my own work on a project, but some applications of this technology could revolutionize the way we think about control.
The software specs:
- Multitouch information sent using standard TUIO protocol for instant integration with existing TUIO clients
- Accelerometer data for each axis (x, y, z) is sent
- 64 faders (8 pages of 8 faders)
- 64 triggers (8 pages of 8 triggers)
- 108 key (9 octaves) VELOCITY SENSITIVE polyphonic keyboard. Yes, the harder you hit the keys, the greater the velocity.
- Settings are automatically saved and restored
- Multitouch area orientation can be set as desired
- All information on protocols are documented in the app
