Audiotouch OS – Flash Multi-touch Audio Environment

Well, I never did a ‘proper’ video of my Audiotouch work, so after 2 years I decided to reshoot some video and experiment with my new HD video camera. The video is also in preparation for another how-to video that I’m developing that builds off the Mtmini video (check that out if you haven’t ) and shows how to create a simple multi-touch surface quick and easy.

I’m hoping to eventually get back to these applications and improve on a few of them. They’ve gone untouched for almost 2 years and were originally written prior to the iphone, ipad, and microsoft surface. It’s amazing how far the technology has come in such a short time.

Bloom – Multitouch Music Application

Well, it’s about time I released another application right? If anyone has ever played Bloom on the iPhone, I’m sure you’ll recognize my port from iphone to table.

If you’re not familiar with bloom, it’s a very simple music creation application. Press anywhere on the screen to create circles that grow and ‘bloom.’ As they fade out and re-appear, they play a note. The note is based on the x-axis. As you move right, the notes go higher.

Mac anyone? New multitouch tracker on it’s way!

Well, I haven’t posted in a while, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped development. Actually, I’ve done the opposite and have been developing with a release date coming soon (hopefully).

I applied for GSoC a couple months ago and my project was chosen and I am have been a student under Natural User Interface Group (NUIGroup) ever since. For my project, I’ve been working on a multitouch framework/lux.

For the last few weeks (with the help of my mentor Christian Moore) I’ve been working on porting over touchlib (the main tracker of the NUIGroup community) to openframeworks. A few reasons we chose to use openframeworks is because it’s (1) Cross-platform (it’ll work on windows/mac/linux), (2) It’s easy to

AudioTouch OS Video

New video of the new system that loads and unloads applications. Also, the desktop is now sending out OSC message to PureData to create some sounds based on finger number and position on screen.

8,000 hits, 1000 Downloads and new AudioTouch Multitouch OS!

In such a short amount of time I’ve hit 1000 downloads! Well, actually it’s 1062 to be exact. Thanks everyone who has been testing and downloading the applications. Feel free to let me know how everything is running. I’d love to hear more feedback.

On another note, the table is about ready for display! It features 4 access points that allow people to load a menu where they can select applications to load. Many applications can be loaded and at the same time. Pressing on the desktop creates wind and glitch type sounds. There’s currently 4 other applications that can be loaded which include: Musical Wong (to be released soon), Musical Squares, Audioshape Sequencer, and MultiKey (half and whole keyboard).
