hello , i made this video with leap Motion and solo violin some years ago :
it is 6 midi cc´s assigned to targets in kontakt , and it works quite good and is very entertaining !
there is a new development :
Our world-leading hand tracking and haptics powers intuitive, touchless gesture control in AR/VR, interactive kiosks, digital out-of-home and automotive.www.ultraleap.com
it is Leap Motion combined with haptic feedback ( coming from ultrasonic speakers )
just yesterday I contacted the developers , they were very nice , but they don't have a music app ready ... I will post ,when I hear from them ...
I too am very interested in leap+geco. But I'm hesitant to become heavily dependent on it, only to have it stop working in a year if there is not enough active maintenance.
Is it still required to use the old v2 version of leap? (Does V2 refer to leap drivers?) Or, is it now possible to use the latest version of leap hardware and software with geco?
I bought my Leap a week ago, and downloaded geco at the weekend, so it seems the latest versions of everything are working
D-Beam at the time was a really fun thing for live performance to add the crowd "wow" factor but it was annoying to use in reality.It was in a bunch of Roland equipment. And as Mystic pointed out it was less "modern" (trans.: apparently only controlled one parameter of choice). I don't see the point and what it gained over a simple fader or wheel other than a "golly gee whiz" factor. LEAP appears to be a different story...
Just to be totally clear, did you install v1.2 or v1.4 for leap?
I'm reading this link - https://developer.leapmotion.com/setup/desktop that strongly hints that apps that requires 1.2 are legacy and not going to be actively supported. But then geco website still says it may not work with 1.4 (https://gallery.leapmotion.com/geco-midi/), and looks like it hasn't been actively maintained for a few years. I wonder if there is any fundamental reason that geco may not work with 1.4? Or is it just a matter of limited resources, and doesn't really need too much maintenance?
Thanks for sharing this.Good Afternoon A little bump on an older thread as a first-time poster! I picked up a Leap Motion in November after getting the oh-so-playable Infinite Brass and Woodwinds - and while I understand Geco to be a great and popular package, I instead ended up building out my own (only for Windows) and decided to share at http://www.midipaw.com for anyone who would like it.
It is designed around the compositional flow of playing in a part with one hand and "leaping" with the other hand, and uses the latest (v4) leap drivers. Just another option for those who want to try their *hand* at it (groan!)
My personal impression is that the hardware is alive and well and supported (and going after a focused gaming/VR kind of experience, primarily) so I feel good that hardware/drivers will evolve for a bit, and with custom software I can keep up as/if it changes. My $117 CDN investment seems safe!
Hi -- thanks for checking it out!Thanks for sharing this.
So, is midipaw better than GECO ? what are the benefits of using midipaw over GECO ?
Oh.. and it's a free download. Cool.
EDIT : Ok, I checked midipaw in more detail, and it offers a lot more control options, and features than GECO does. I will have to give it a try.
Thanks for the feedback.Hi -- thanks for checking it out!
Admission: I never actually installed GECO, so I can't be too helpful with a comparison (so I guess I'd say "different!"), but a few key bits that I like about how MidiPaw turned out which may or may not be unique to it are:
If you have any observations or feedback, I'm all ears
- It fits my thinking which goes "oh, I need a way to control vibrato. What motion do I want for that? What CC is it on? Okay, I'll add a rule for it..."
- In the detailed rule settings, I find "tuning" the rules to my motions *very* fast and intuitive with visual feedback. I didn't even put numbers on the sliders because I found I did better with feel than with digits
- I like the little hand graphic in the settings that controls how much the palm vs each finger is used to figure out overall position
- I can shrink it small and pin the window on top so it plays nicely while i'm in my DAW
