A Mid-Air Gestural Controller for the Pyramix® 3D Panner

Document Thumbnail

Input devices that operate in three-dimensions and six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) have been evolving over the past several decades, and much research has been done on the subject of capturing the gestures of performers in an effort to re-map them to digital instruments, but not much for 3D audio. The practice of 3D audio mixing and spatialization is no different from a musical performance in this respect. The gestures used by engineers are expressive and have complex metaphorical significance. The purpose of this project includes developing a 6DOF gestural control utilising the Leap Motion® controller for the Digital Workstation Pyramix®, which will work as a MIDI layover gestural control system to be used as a multi-dimensional controller and automation recorder.
