Synthesizer Project (Leap Motion and Max MSP)

Leap Motion and Max MSP

This instrument makes it possible to generate tones from the positions of the fingers picked up by a Leap Motion device. The finger position data is pushed to 10 channels to produce MIDI notes.

The finger position data is pushed to 10 channels to produce MIDI notes.

With X axis, left-right movements define the pitch of the notes (higher to the right)

With Y axis, up-down movements adjust intensity (higher up);

With Z axis, forward-backward movements change note duration, longer towards operator direction).

The synthesizer also allows you to individually adjust the channels:

     Adjusting the pitch of notes;

     Output volume of notes;

     Source filtering (%) to reduce the number of notes;

     Duration of notes;

     Number of echoes;

     Volume of echoes;

     Echo output volume.

Mappings to MIDI instruments are given by a value 0 to 128. They can be selected manually or chosen at random and can be stored in memory).
