this.is.NOISE today launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund production of the MIDI Blaster, a MIDI controller featuring 4 infrared sensors and RGB LED’s, designed to give you gestural control over 4 effects.
The device uses these infrared sensors to track your hand across 4 points, then sends the corresponding CC data to your DAW or synth to control 4 effects simultaneously, yet individually. The developers say that “The result is the potential for incredible soundscapes at the tilt of your hand, offering a splash of RGB goodness and musical creativity.”
