AudioCubes are intelligent light-emitting blocks that have 4 onboard high speed and high sensitivity infrared sensors and work as a 4 dimensional optical theremin.
The infrared sensors can sense your hands and fingers, and measure the distance from your hands/fingers to the sensor.
When moving your hands and fingers in front of the infrared sensors, the AudioCube sends a MIDI control change to your DAW, such as Ableton Live or any other midi compatible software or hardware.
You can assign each sensor to a specific effect or an instrument in your DAW. This means you can control up to 4 effects or instruments per AudioCube!
To use an AudioCube as an optical theremin, you need to configure your AudioCube as a sensor cube in MIDIBridge, a free app that comes with the AudioCubes.
MIDIBridge sends MIDI Continuous control changes to your DAW such as Apple Logic, Ableton Live, Steinberg Cubase, Image Line FL Studio, Propellerhead Reason and Record, Apple Garageband, ...
The AudioCubes come with special sound packs for Ableton Live which you can use a starting point for shaping sounds with your AudioCube.
You can link each of the 4 high speed infrared sensors to a color, so the color changes each time you come closer to a cube, or simply control the colours from your MIDI compatible software or hardware using MIDI Continuous control changes.
