Using a Launchpad as a harmonic table controller (without staggered buttons).

Windows C++ program reads keypresses, maps notes and and drives Propellerheads Reason via Midi Yoke. Kind of like a poor mans Axis controller.

Apologies for the playing.. I was kind of making it up as I went along.

In this series of videos, Elaine Walker explores microtonal music with the C-Thru Music AXIS controller. There are 12 videos in the series embedded above.

C-Thru Music has lent me this keyboard, called the AXIS, for a few months, and I am rearranging the keys for the Bohlen-Pierce Scale, a macrotuning based on a 3/1 frequency ratio, divided by 13 equal steps.

See http://www.ziaspace.com/elaine/BP for research on the BP Scale.

This particular AXIS toured with the Lionel Richie Band on loan, went to me, and in two weeks I will be flying to Boston to give this AXIS to the Berklee College of Music, Synthesis Department – namely to Dr. Boulanger who will use it for his classes and for the new microtonal club.

I teach Electronic Music at Scottsdale Community College. Come join the fun!
