ForumsNews ← New Soundplane software!

There's a lot going on here at the Labs. While finishing up production on the second run of Soundplanes, I've been able to rewrite the client code that does touch tracking. Here's the result in a very quick and rough demo video. I'm playing a string sound with Aalto over OSC, and simultaneously, a piano with Logic over MIDI.

The new code stores a snapshot of finger pressure at each point on the Soundplane surface. It uses this information to determine what is and what isn't a touch with much better confidence than before. It also normalizes the force over the surface for smoother playing.

Here is a ten minute video walkthrough of the new features, showing how to do the calibration. It picks up a little after I manage to throw away the preferences, but is still probably of interest only to Soundplane owners.

This is great Randy! You're the man!
