new midi controller: gypsy motion sensor

Post by *sigh* » Mon Feb 20, 2006 2:13 pm

Anyone actually seen one of these babies in action? £500 for the ultimate solution to the "checking your email" look most of us laptop jockeys are so good at.

It would be like learning to play another instrument all over again though. What I like about computer music is that we, the uncoordinated, are released from the restraints of kinesthetic learning. Just because I can't play a piano doen't mean I can't get that sound in my tracks when I need it.

Still want one though. (gypsy, not a piano)

The movements for it are a bit hazy imo.
Might as well use d-beams.

But i guess it's another step closer to being able to compose in virtual reality.
A holographic piano. yummy.....

yeah I thought it was bit imprecise

the fact he only had 4 notes on the synth was a bit depressing...still. at least you look like you're doing something on stage.

thanks for the headsup on the other post... I did a search before posting but "I guess what we have here is a failure to communicate."

I thought looking like a spanner was part of the fun of performing? Of course these people are from Brighton and so allowed to do this kind of shit. Not that you would find me in on Espedair Street trying to impress the punters of deepest Paisley with it :lol:

Aye, I thought when I signed up for this forum they said "Right! You're the last Paisley f***er who gets on this forum!" You mean there are others?

Oh shit, blew my cover...

heh -Londoner now

I used to work at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, only for a bit, mind.

Also Espedair Street was one of my favourite Iain Banks novels from several years before, I didn't put the two together until I walked down the very road.

Still one of the best accents IMHO
