The incredible Human Electro, aka Ryo Fugimoto improvises with AeroMIDI, Abelton Live, KAOS Pad and his versatile voice. In this case, Ryo is mainly using AeroMIDI to trigger notes in several axes, up/down and a tilt midi note trigger. Forward to 2:30 for the meat of the improvisation.
Looking forward to more amazing footage from Human Electro!
We've discovered an interesting issue with training Ableton Live with the action cards. They train, but they do not train properly, even though, for all intensive purposes it looks like they train.
In version 1.0, Live parameters train as ON/OFF switches...which is incorrect. We will be releasing a fix for dealing with Ableton soon.
In the meantime, here is a very easy workaround. That only takes one more click.
In Ableton Live, click the MIDI Learn button
Select the parameter you'd like to train
Now go back to AeroMIDI and push the Train button on a parameter you'd like to learn.
Now, here is the work-around. On the range, click the down area on the high end of the range so that it moves from 127 to 126. And then move it back to 127. That's it! (It may be that you have move it to several values and then click Stop before too much time has passed.)
Click the Stop button
And the parameter in Live will be trained (properly!)
Turn off the MIDI learn in Ableton and you're done!
The new AeroMIDI 1.0 is out and ready for download! (The previous version was 0.94, but this is a major upgrade.)
In it you'll find new "Action Cards" which let you track hands in X,Y, Z...including Pitch, Roll and Yaw!
Quickly and easily set up action cards that respond to gestures from either the left or right hand. Specify the number of fingers that each gesture requires. Then attach action controllers and note patterns to hand movements and rotations!
