[quote="mag"]seen this on another forum:

PLASTIKMAN LIVE SHOW TO UNVEIL UNPRECEDENTED TECHNOLOGIES AT MUTEK

The Gear
Hawtin has designed and built an entirely custom MIDI controller incorporating the features and power of 5 MIDI devices into one. This unit, the CTRL LIVE, will give Hawtin full real-time control over 128 parameters of audio, video, lighting, and effects simultaneously.

HEY - I WISH I HAD A 128 HANDS FOR MIDI CONTROL.

For additional MIDI control, Hawtin will use an unreleased surface controller developed by Tactex. The units use the same technology the company developed for the Canadian Space Arm.

THIS UNIT WAS ANNOUNCED AS SURFACE ONE BY M-AUDIO AND DROPPED, WHEN EVEN THE 2ND DEVELOPER TEAM WAS UNABLE TO MAKE IT WORK THE WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED. TOO SAD.

The MIDI system will work with one Apple G5 audio computer, as well as two massive, industrial custom-built 3D graphics and video PCs, multiple drum machines, analog and digital synthesizers and a host of analog and digital effects units. Hawtin will mix all audio using two Allen & Heath 14x4x2 Mix Wizards on stage.

The Software
Several of the most advanced performance-software developers have created breakthrough features in their software for the Plastikman show.

LOOK HERE
http://www.derivativeinc.com/Tools/SoftwareReleases.asp

Ableton has created a special MIDI output feature in their nearly ubiquitous Live program that allows Hawtin to send detailed data to every connected instrument, locking every element together to a degree that had previously been unavailable. New features in Ableton Live also allow Hawtin to navigate his compositions through the CTRL LIVE device with amazing speed and dexterity.

WAIT A BIT AND YOU'LL SEE MIDI AS A SPECIAL CUSTOMIZED FEATURE FOR ALL OF US.

WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? THINK THE CTRL LIVE IS A SOMEHOW CUSTOMIZED MOTOR MIX DERIVATE.

Toronto-based Derivative has developed a custom-designed real-time animation and video sequencing environment for the Plastikman performance. Using their Touch software, Derivative has also programmed MIDI sync modules to lock the visual effects to Ableton Live, as well as custom software interface for the CTRL LIVE control surface.


WELL, WELL - GIMME SOME CUSTOMIZED MUSIC MR.HAWTON.
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO HAVE A STREAM OF THAT PERFORMANCE - I MEAN BESIDES THE CUSTOMIZED AREA I MIGHT HAVE A LOOK ON THE SHOW ASWELL.

my customized midiox interface to ableton gives me, via 2 oxy8s, simultaneous control over 80 knob parameters and 48 triggers. i actively use 95% of them.

anybody is welcome to fiddle with it and make it better, it's just what i use for gigging -- rather reminiscent of ControlAid though not as pretty:

www.vato9.org/midiox.zip

come to think of it, that equals 128 just like Hawtin's, without even considering the computer key triggers -- that's like 20 more...

as a friend of rich's, it's disturbing to see people bash him for his work. he's one of the hardest working in the industry. Always pushing the boundaries of technology and music. If you don't like his work, that's fine but there is no need to talk down on him and his music. Too each there own. and if you think the "customized" software isn't going to be used to it's fullest extent, just go to the show and see for yourself.
