Moovmi is a Max For Live Video-to-MIDI plugin that produces midinote sequences from video data input from both video files and webcam as a source. The video is reduced to a low-resolution grid where each cell generates midinotes in a predefined interval and pitch, while the velocity is determined by the luminance of the cell. The user can influence the midi sequences by processing the source with video parameters such as brightness, contrast, saturation, threshold, colors feedback, etc.
Musical interfaces – especially for Ableton – are getting more and more tactile as time goes on. From the iPad based TouchAble, to Kinect controlling dubstep basslines, soon every music producers dreams will have come true – no cables, no tedious MIDI mapping, and a much more live and interactive performance!
