Gestural Sound Toolkit

The toolkit gathers a collection of Max/MSPlink patches and objects for easy and fast gesture-to-sound scenario prototyping. It include receivers from various motion capture systems, signal processing modules, machine learning modules, and sound synthesis modules. The Max objects are compiled for Mac only but the patches are multi-platform. The overview patch (image on the right) shows the modules included in the toolkit.
