As you know I own a Novation Launchpad, and since I want to extend the functionality in ways that Novation did not think about and I really don’t want to be bound by max/msp. Inspiration are plentiful from the work’s of monomeist’s and fellow launchpadders.
What I’m making though is a little framework, with the emphasis on little, that enables me (and perhaps other when the source is a bit better) to create applications in C/C++. So far I’ve gotten a decent framework in place as a command application. No GUI to speak of and it needs a little bit of cleaning up before anyone could make a port to something other then it’s current os x home.
But without further babbling, here is a video of a little something I made as test of the framework:
I love it. I don’t have the C skills, but I look forward to making some stuff with processing for the launchpad in the near future. Lot’s of nerdy fun.
