Argos: Super Cool Multitouch Music Interface Builder

If you’re familiar with the Jazzmutant Lemur, you’ll want to get familiar with Argos Interface Builder by Dimitri Diakopoulos using the great c++ framework openFrameworks.

Last summer I took part in Google Summer of Code as a mentor. Dimitri proposed a multitouch music interface builder and I thought it was a fantastic idea. An opensource lemur; who wouldn’t like that??? Dimitri was chosen as a student for GSoC and I was able to mentor him as he developed Argos. It’s come a long way, and with a little help from the opensource community, it has potential to be incredible!

Take a look at the video below to see Argos in use. You can find the source and a binary (for windows users) here: http://code.google.com/p/ofxargos/

Make sure to check out the release notes and official Argos website at http://argos.dimitridiakopoulos.com/ The application is still feature-incomplete, but quickly approaching a usable state! Dimitri can really use community support; so make sure to say ‘hi’ to him and get involved to make argos the next coolest opensource music interface!
