Titan Reality has introduced the Pulse 3D music controller – a new gestural music controller.
Pulse is a high-speed 3D controller and an ‘intelligent space and surface’ to interact with. It can also recognize hand gestures and objects to give you a more realistic and creative way of controlling sound.
Here is the official video intro:
Pulse can be used as a DJ deck, drum, hand percussion, keyboard, 3D controlled sound, mixer, harp, drum machine, guitar or vocal effect and more.
Pulse manufacturing is being funded via a Kickstarter project, Technical details on how the Pulse are currently sparse on the campaign site, but it appears to use proprietary communication. They note:
Pulse apps run on most platforms (OSX, iOS, Android, Windows) and are available as plugins in your favorite music software (Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Garage Band…). Pulse and its apps are very high resolution compared to MIDI but stay compatible.
The Pulse is available to Kickstarter backers starting at £750. See the project site for details.
