All interfaces are programmed in Max Msp.The first interface was designed by dr. Pieter Coussement. All following interfaces were designed by drs. Bart Moens.
Fixed mapping of Interface 1 & 2
In the third prototype, major changes where made in the interface in order to allow for a dynamic and adaptable mapping:
- mapping are established by connecting input and output on the basis of a grid (A).
- different drawing options (e.g. direct, linear, exponential) were added (B)
- instruments can be chosen and the register of the instrument can be adapted (C).
- different colour circles can be chosen (D).
- several submodules allow adapting the range of mapped values by setting minima and maxima of values to be measured (e.g. only send values when above or below a certain value) or of mapped values (E).
- The canvas can be split (horizontally and vertically) to allow a modelling modus. The teacher or a learner makes a painting first and a learner can try to imitate what has been painted (F, G)
- A grid modus was added, allowing the introduction of measure, beats per measure. A metronome can be activated, letting the beat lines of the grid lighten up to show the beats. There is also an option to let the metronome sound.
