If John can give us the link up, particularly if we can have direct access to preset modulators it would be very cool.
USB thermin controller, looks cool. I guess much more expressive, since the thermin is just distance from the antenna. Anyway, i'll do some investigation into it.
So i guess my question to you is, how would you like to use a device like this in Studio Artist?
I'm all about exploring new possibilities. Translating 3d motions into 2d art, unless of course 3d elements are brought into SA which I would find exciting... especially in the area of 3D sculpting. I'm honestly too sleep deprived to do any useful brainstorming right now Watching the demonstration of the device just tickled my brain. So, I wanted to mention it before its' addled neurons give up the ghost entirely... lol. I'm also interested to see what other users have to say. Perhaps I will have something more intelligent to say on this subject later :)
I have a few concepts on this.. Of course it depends what is available in the SDK. The obvious bit would be controlling the pen. But I think there could be so much more to be gained by mapping individual fingers to the various preset modulators or if you were to bring back user sliders in the MSG, mapping those to either a finger or a gestural combination..
I believe that we could get pretty close to the concept of drawing with 2 presets simultaneously if for example the pen mode could be modulated by a gesture/finger movement while the preset was loop running.. and that is just the start.. many of my recent hand draw presets are just minor variations on a theme, it would be great to be able to modulate the parameters live rather than having to switch presets.
OR imagine some thing as simple as mapping favs to one hand while drawing with the other...
incidentally, I believe that leap uses a pass through that emulates touch screen, so anything that you made (external device) modulation aware could be available for the appropriately programmed touch device.
As crazy as it seems.. from the demo it looks like you could have at least 10 channels of input. SO really just scratching the surface here..
(in general terms I am thinking of what might be done for live performance)
Just wanted to mention you can use the function keys to switch between favorites presets.
Look in the live performance features section here.
yes, but looking down at the keyboard especially a mac keyboard with its half size function keys in the dark is less than ideal. Not your fault, but this leap tracker could be a better solution. I know that JD has some custom programmed touch device for mixing that he has used to replace his edriol and is much the happier for it. anything that can be done to "stay in the performance" is a bonus.
