Smithson Martin have released a new application, Emulator Modular, that is designed to let you create a multitouch controller for any program.
- Convert your multi-touch device into a powerful MIDI controller.
- Built your ‘dream interface’.
- Emulator includes a complete list of objects so you can custom design your own multi-touch interface with buttons, sliders, circular knobs, jog wheels and many more.
- Work at any resolution.
- Add multi-touch capability to your preferred DJ, VJ or Music Production software.
The current release is for Windows, but a version for OS X is under development.
I had the chance to talk with Smithson Martin co-founder Alan Smithson at the 2012 NAMM Show, and he said that there is already a community of Emulator Modular developers sharing templates for the platform.
Here’s an example of the type of interfaces you can create with Emulator Modular – a multitouch interface for Ableton Live:
Emulator Modular is currently available for WIndows for $499 for a lifetime license or $199 for an annual subscription. A trial version is also available. See the Smithson Martin site for details.
