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

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.
