The VirtualController

by ATTACCO

is a new AUDIO PLUG-IN

do not miss the launch

Transforms everything in a MIDI controller

Translates your musical percussive gestures into MIDI data

Analyzes your execution and gives augmented expressivity

and many more

 
 

How it works.

Everytime an attack is detected through the microphone...

...and then converted into MIDI data, so you can play music in your DAW.

...the signal is analyzed in timbre, speed and velocity...

 

3 control signals

Here we use a contact microphone to capture LIVE the different gestures executed on a table.
Then we use those gestures to make music in the DAW.

 

Timbre

producing different timbres on the surface.

Playing kick and snare sounds using finger and a sushi stick.

Speed

time elapsed between hits.

Controlling the pitch by how fast the hits are (faster the hits, lower the pitch).

Velocity

how hard the hits are.

Controlling cut off filter, sample length and pitch with velocity.
