I’ve recently start doing live performances where I combine midi notes coming from musicians to create real time 3D content. During the performance I also modify the rendering parameters to make things more interactive. Basically I control the ofxgui parameters through an external device, that is an old and heavy stage piano.
Right now, I’m searching for a control surface with several knobs, sliders and buttons to manage vertexes, colors, cameras, ecc… There a plenty of MIDI control surfaces that can fit my needs (AKAI, Arturia, Novation, Roland, Berhinger) but the limitation to 128 values for each control makes hard to control float values.
Is there any hardware solution or do I have to simply write code to “smooth” midi signals that are binded to float values?
Do you have some suggestion about which kind of model can fit my needs?
Thanks a lot
