Sound Design Experiment With Aalto & AudioCubes

This video, via Mark Mosher (of Modulate This!) captures Mosher’s experiments with AudioCube controlled sound design in Madrona Labs’ Aalto synthesizer:

I’ve used the configure button on the Ableton Device holding the Aalto syntheiszer to select a set of parameters that I then map to faces of two Percussa AudioCubes in sensor mode.

Spatial movement of my fingers modulate parameters in custom patches I created in Aalto from INIT. In same cases cubes modulate each other if sensors are facing each other.

The combination of Aalto and AudioCubes is interesting because of the way it combines a classic approach to modular synthesis with a very modern tangible interface.

Any other readers using alternative controllers with Aalto?
