MIDIBridge: control your favourite MIDI effects and instruments using your hands and fingers through AudioCubes.

MIDIBridge is an easy to use software application to use Percussa AudioCubes with your favourite MIDI instruments and effects. This way, AudioCubes becomes a powerful gestural audiovisual MIDI controller.

Use MIDIBridge to integrate AudioCubes in your live performance setup, DJ sets, sound design work, ... the possibilities are endless.

Check out the video below in which Colorado based artist Mark Mosher uses AudioCubes with MIDIBridge.


MIDIBridge

In MIDIBridge, you can use AudioCubes to generate note triggers (when cubes are placed next to each other or turned), as well as generate continous control messages, which can be used to control parameters of your favourite MIDI compatible instrument or effect, similar to how a Theremin works: hand gestures control filter cutoff frequency, pitch, volume, etc.

For all you Open Sound Control geeks out there, we also have an OSC server, which works similarly to MIDIBRIDGE, but it's a command line application.
