AeroMIDI is the virtual 3D glue between your music and your hands.

What does AeroMIDI do?

AeroMIDI allows you to use your hands in 3D space to trigger notes and MIDI continuous controller messages. AeroMIDI works with any MIDI software or hardware! Control synthesizers, lighting rigs, DAWs, effects, virtual instruments, and any other MIDI-capable hardware or software with AeroMIDI!

Ever had the desire to control more than two knobs at a time? With AeroMIDI, you can control six expression parameters with just one hand. Or use both hands and control 12 expression parameters at one time. Add in cubes or zones and you can trigger events, beats or notes. Perform a gesture, such as a two-fingered swipe to the left and, suddenly, you have a whole new mode or set of expression controls and MIDI actions.

AeroMIDI is the virtual 3D glue between your music and your hands.. Prepare to create and shape music in a whole new way.

*** This is the trial version of AeroMIDI and is limited in the fact that it does not save ***

  • Move and rotate your hand & finger movements into MIDI with incredibly low latency.
  • Play notes by triggering 3D zones.
  • Perform gestures to send MIDI data or switch modes.
  • Configurable 3D cubes let you build your own custom controller interface.

  • Works with any MIDI software or MIDI hardware

    I really like the application but I think they should lower the price down to something like $30 so that more people can buy it.

    So yes, you can check me sucking ass in Rock Band while I use AeroMIDI in all it's glory: Although I think the price is too high, I still gave it four stars for it's potential; $15 would be the sweet spot and $20 should be at most.

    [refers to trial version] first load, seemed to trun off my DAW's access to the audio output second load, by opening DAW before AeroMIDI got the audio output, could use the mouse to play notes on the keyboard in Aero but the Cubes didn't seem to want to link to the notes or produce output. gave in and loaded Mixcfraft with similar results. > will try again tomorrow but not hopeful :|
