AeroMIDI 0.92 released

AeroMIDI 0.92 has been released.

Download it at

Here is the change list:

  • Recent Wall Persistence - this is a new feature that helps when navigating adjacent cubes with a shared wall.  This keeps walls around for an extra .2 seconds after leaving a cube.
  • Fix for sending a note off before a note on.  This caused glitches on some synths.
  • Temporary crash fix for those that could happen with some anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky, ESET, Avast!
  • New Example files for use with Mixcraft 6.  Look in the installation folder followed by "Example Projects" and then "Mixcraft 6".
  • The camera freeze position is now saved with the project.

Here is a screenshot of the new "Alien Worlds" theremin style instrument.  Very cool. 

As always, we are interested in your feedback and suggestions.  Send them to .  Thanks!

Mac download or install damaged? Not.

We have discovered a download/install issue with our Mac version of AeroMIDI.  The problem is that the security settings on the Mac might be defaulted to not allow software downloads from companies other than Apple or identified developers. 

If you get the message "Aeromidi is damaged and should be moved to the trash" then you are encountering this problem. 

Its not really damaged.  This is Apple’s security measures that prevent you from running applications that aren't directly from Apple’s store.  In order to get passed this go to your System Preferences > Security & Privacy.  Click the lock icon to unlock it.  Enter your password and switch to “Allow Apps from ANYWHERE”.  After this, you will be able to install it.  Reset your Security & Privacy to the proper level if desired.

We will work on becoming an accepted Apple developer. But, in the meantime, this is a solution.


AeroMIDI first release!

The Leap Motion Controller been released and AeroMIDI is now available for download.  You may notice that the version is 0.89.   Since the software is manipulating cubes in 3D space, there are a few tweaks and adjustments that we will be making.  By all means, try out the demo/trial and send us your feedback.

Download the AeroMIDI trial here

Here are some of the things we have fixed/changed that will show up in the next version:
  • Time persistent walls.  When pushing against a wall in a cube and then moving to an adjacent cube, it was possible to forget that the actual location of the finger would have been further out in Z-depth.  The finger was simply constrained and then when the finger moved out of the cube, it was freed and zoomed out of range.  The new code allows any walls to persist for 200 milliseconds once the finger has left a cube.  This allows for smooth cube transitioning as expected.
  • There is a crashing bug related to an anti-virus.  We are awaiting a bug fix there from the Unity 3D developers.
  • There was a bug in MIDI output where AeroMIDI is sending a note off before a note on, causing some synths to be silent.

As this is new technology and a new way to explore MIDI, we encourage you to send in your projects, videos and ideas.  Of course, please send any bug reports to

Thank you!
