Building Instruments with TouchDesigner and Max

This week we have a fantastic guest post by Jay Tobin, who brings to you his experiences using TouchDesigner along with Max and walks you through building a full on realtime AV instrument using the powers of both softwares. Jay walks you through harnessing Kinect data in TouchDesigner, sending that data over OSC to Max, parsing that data in Max, and then using Max's easy-to-use audio synthesis to create a theremin that is controlled by your Kinect in less than 30 minutes. He's even included the project files for your reference. We've always loved the TouchDesigner and Max combo and couldn't be happier to share this great walkthrough from Jay.
