At the 2014 NAMM Show, Aerodrums introduced the Aerodrums Air Drumming Percussion Instrument – a motion capture controlled virtual instrument.
The key advantage are portability and silent operation. It also lets you create custom drum kits, using your own samples, so it could be used in creative ways to trigger any type of sounds.
Aerodrums runs on your computer and captures your drumming ‘intent’ by watching you drum through a high speed camera. The computer translates this into control of a virtual drum set.
You will need a Windows computer and a Sony Playstation 3 Eye camera to run Aerodrums. The minimum specifications for the computer are as follows: Intel Core 2 Duo 2Ghz with dedicated graphics card, operating system: Windows Vista, 7 or 8.
