[Prototype] LeapMotion-controlled TidalCycles performance

Hi friends! Here's a prototype of LeapMIDI, a project to control TidalCycles (and other MIDI-enabled instruments) from hand movements in the air.

Here the Midi CC signals are sent from the Webapp with the WebMIDI API, to Supercollider via MIDI Through, then mapped in my Tidal track to control each instrument's gain and effects such as a global djfbus or individual crush levels.

It's just a proof of concept for now, but once I sort out some details like smoothing (it's a bit rough for now as the LeapMotion is quite sensitive to small movements), I'm sure this can be a neat addition to a live performance setup!



This looks absolutely fantastic! Great work. I can't wait to have a go with it
