This video demonstrates using Max For Live with a Wacom Tablet to control the Analog synth instrument in Ableton Live 8.
The “Wacom Theremin” offers a lot of expressive musical potential, with 5 degrees of control over the sound.
The live.remote~ object passes data at many times the resolution of MIDI (one of the great things about the Wacom tablet and sample accurate modulation from MSP to Ableton Live using the API objects in Max for Live).
The Wacom tablet has 5 degrees of hi-res expressive freedom (see below for mappings). Very promising, this is just a quick little study… Cheers.
