Right, this has been something I’ve had in development for a while – and I’ve finally decided to put out a video demo. More info, videos, audio and hopefully source coming soon.
Flash Midi Server + Webcam image to audio app
An early test of my Flash Midi Server – used to send Midi notes and controllers from within Flash movies.
This early demo shows the Processing based Midi server (blue app in the bottom left), and also a Flash Webcam based audio tool. The Flash app takes still images from a webcam, and analysies them for 4 colours within them. These colours are then mapped to a range of notes, so for example, a white image will send a high note, whilst a black image wil send a low note. These notes can then be played back using Midi, and the corresponding images are displayed.
As an extra feature – the “activty level” (amount of movement) in the webcam can be monitored, and sent as CC data, to alter any settings. Here it is linked to a paramater of the midi instrument.
More polished versions coming soon.
Hopefully some nicer audio coming soon too : )
