MiMU, the company behind the MiMU Gloves gestural MIDI controller, has introduced Glover, a new environment for connecting motion-tracking devices to your music software.
Glover lets you map physical gestural to MIDI (or OSC), letting you create your own gestural language for music making. The software supports a wide range of motion tracking devices, including iPhone, Leap Motion, micro:bit and the MiMU Gloves.
With Glover, you can essentially play anything – your soft synths, your hardware or your DAW – like a theremin. But machine learning means that you can use gesture recognition to go even further.
Glover is essentially the heart of the MiMu Gloves – letting you control how your physical gestures – captured via sensors – are translated into musical information. It lets you take motion tracking devices and customize how they control music software, such as Ableton Live, Mainstage or Logic Pro.
Gesture recognition algorithms analyze the data coming in from your sensor, and then let you map it to MIDI or OSC. For example, you might make a ‘fist’ to start recording a loop ,or move your hand upwards to add reverb to your voice.
Glover was originally designed as the mapping environment for the MiMU Gloves, but it has been expanded to support a wider range of devices.
