hymnotix - Animoog Dubstep

Reader hymnotix has put together a very interesting Animoog video, using an iPod and a second iPad running MIDI Designer.
He uses the iPod accelerometer for controlling Animoog's X/Y and the second iPad is controlling Loopy via MIDI over WiFi.

This is part of a 15 minute jam that he's edited down to 5 minutes, which is a great idea to just give us the best parts of the jam!

Buy Animoog on iTunes: $29.99


Buy MIDI Designer Pro on iTunes: $18.99

Buy Molten on iTunes: $4.99


Buy Loopy HD on iTunes: $7.99

Aaaand my mind just exploded. A couple of questions here: how did he get his iPod to control the X/Y of his iPad Animoog? Is that a feature of Animoog I just never stumbled on to, or a whole different thing? (Not that it would help me out much now, as my iPod just kinda, ermm, asploded a short while ago)

Secondly, well . . . Okay, so that was my only question, but dang, that was pretty groovy.

I've asked the same question on the video. I can see that the XY is controlled by the iPod accelerometer feature of Midi Designer, and then there are two buttons and a control that controls something via Midi into the iPad.

So I'd like to know what Midi channels the button and control are linked to. And then how to setup Animoog to make this kind of sound. Clearly Animoog is incredibly powerful and the tutorial Discchord did last year only scratches the surface of the app's capabilities! Amazing what a $30 (less if found on sale) can do... oh and some people (not me) got it for $1 when it came out!!

Hey guys, thanks for listening. Its all MIDI designer magic working on the iPod. MIDI designer Lite is free if you want to try it out. MidiDesigner.com has lots of tutorials; imo, its way easier than trying to learn Lemur.

So I mapped two accelerometer activated knobs (hidden) to Animoog xy grid, left button to LFO, the right button to UNISON, and two faders for Animoog's DRIVE knobs. The rest is all practicing wrist-to-BPM syncing. :-)

Thanks for the info, Hx. Definitely gonna hafta go check out MIDI Designer again; I've had it before, but could never quite get a handle on it. Course, now the biggest question for me is, do I replace my exploded iPod, or be bad (and risk the fury of the wife) and get myself a second iPad . . .

Actually, I like the sound of that. I could rig up a wobble platform for the second iPad so I can work the accelerometer and still have the larger surface to doodle with, while the other iPad runs the synth of choice. It's not outlandish to spend all that money for a larger wobbly bit, is it?

Anyway, past my incoherent ramblings, I gotta again give you props for working up a very groovy jam, and hope to hear more stuff outta you soon. Thanks Hx!
