Quartz Composer, Ableton Live and Synapse Kinect Controlling 3D Geometry and SoundPublished by admin on Thu, 19/01/2012 - 12:02pm
In this great demonstration of using a Kinect enabled digital synthesizer, the folks at 1000 errors used a wide assortment of applications to build this very cool hack. The digital pot-o-gumbo consists of several applications being used in tandem such as Synapse Kinect, Maxxforlive, Ableton Live, VDMX and Quartz Composer
Firstly my right hand controls the xyz coordinates of the cube.
My left hand y position controls the rate the cube spins, it also controls the rate of a low frequency oscillator controlling the cutoff frequency for the synthesizer you can hear in the video.
My left hand's x position controls the hue for the cube.
My head's Z position controls the feedback effect on the cube and also the pitch for the oscillator generating the initial sound.
Check out the video to see it in action!
