Visuals for Sonar Festival + VDMX to Unity [Tutorials] - Creating a Sound Visualizer with #Unity3D by @miketucker Numbers, a record label originating from Glasgow, had the opportunity to showcase artists at this year’s Sonar Festival in Barcelona. The artists Redinho, Spencer, Deadboy, Jackmaster, and Lory D each had a spot in the set. Adam Rodgers, co-founder of Numbers and Remote-Location approached Thomas Traum, Adam Finlay and myself to create live visuals for the show. We compared a number of technologies and frameworks– OpenFrameworks, Cinder, Unity3D, Cocos2d, WebGL, Processing, and good ol’ Flash.

What we need to do f a b r i z i o p o c e The J74 ISO Controllers package allows you to turn the popular APC40 (original edition) and Launchpad (standard Launchpad, Launchpad-s, Launchpad-mini) into multi-template isomorphic controllers. By re-assigning notes to the pads and using colors to give essential and intuitive information about the harmonic characteristics, the layouts turn both controllers in easy to play instruments for harmony and melody. The package provides you with both standalone applications (for MAC and Windows for use with any DAW software) as well as Ableton Live Max for Live format. Notes: - The Launchpad (any model) is supported by both Standalone and Max for Live versions of the ISO Controllers. The APC40 is supported only by the Max for Live version. - Currently only the original edition of the APC40 is supported. The APC40 mk2, as well as the other APC controllers, are not supported. - The Python version has been discontinued and replaced by the Standalone version.
