Sanjay C shows off MoveMIDI, which uses VR motion controllers outside of VR as a MIDI instrument. Sanjay made a bowed cello by combining MoveMIDI with an Artiphon Instrument 1! MoveMIDI will be releasing soon.
In this video I demonstrate Move MIDI, brand new software that let’s you play and control sounds in 3D space! MoveMIDI is a virtual reality musical instrument that translates your movements in physical space into musical notes and changes over time. It uses a combination of custom software and virtual reality hardware, to send MIDI Note & Control Change signals to any DAW software or hardware that supports MIDI. MoveMIDI for PlayStation Move hardware will be released in early 2018. Subsequent versions of MoveMIDI for other commercial VR hardware such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are also in development for the future. I wanted to stretch the capabilities of MoveMIDI to control the organic, natural movements of a cello bow. The Artiphon Instrument 1 had the perfect form factor to act as the cello body. So in this song I use the controllers like a bow for the cello sound. I cover the song “Feel No Ways” by Drake and use MoveMIDI for the string and cello sounds. All the other sounds were controlled using the Artiphon Instrument 1. I used a drum kit and Rhodes sounds from Ableton, as well as the Scarbee Jay Bass from Native Instruments, and some other Ableton sounds. A couple samples used were recorded directly from the source - just like the Drake song! :-)
