You can send MIDI notes, MIDI chords, and MIDI controller values (CC) to your synthesizers or your workstation. A special Toggle mode can be used to trigger drumloops or mute tracks etc.
What about: A MIDI drumkit made of pans, a shaker that triggers your drum computer, an enhanced guitar with sound effects, a cymbal sound that starts when you kick your drummer's butt...
Simply connect alligator clips to objects that should work as MIDI triggers. Any conductive material like fruits, metal, or other band members will work.
Give your audience something to talk about! What will they remember more: Yet another laptop act or the guy with the crazy unique device?
Hint: You can test MidiMidi even without MaKey MaKey by using your normal keyboard. Just press the keys that are shown on the pads.
You can also take a look at the MidiMidi FAQ if you have further questions.
MidiMidi converts the input of the successful Kickstarter project MaKey MaKey into MIDI notes, MIDI chords, and MIDI controller values. As demonstrated in the video you can connect any conductive material like fruits or metal to the small platine by just using some alligator clips (ever played a digital drumkit on some cooking pans?). MaKey MaKey transforms the touch into a key press event and MidiMidi converts this key event to MIDI data.
MidiMidi is fully compatible to MaKey MaKey and its' gaming oriented standard key setting (W, A, S, D, Space etc). Ten keys can get remapped to send MIDI data to DAWs or synthesizers, four banks are available to organize different settings.
When I first read about MaKey MaKey I was immediately intrigued by the idea to build new gear without any soldering. I am more into software than into hardware tinkering, so making my own MIDI controller by just using alligator clips was quite appealing to me.
