Multi-Dimensional MIDI/OSC/CopperLan Expression Through Hand Gestures

Please contact us through the product website if you need assistance with using GECO. We'll get back to you as quickly as possible. Additionally, on the website you'll find an extensive collection of video tutorials to help you get started and a user forum to exchange tips and tricks.

GECO is one of the easiest and most powerful solutions to interact with MIDI/OSC/CopperLan through touchless control. Our custom multi-staged processing engine ensures an extremely low processing overhead and near zero latency, while still providing you with beautiful real-time visual feedback and powerful customization capabilities. GECO has been designed for live performance and quick configuration during rehearsal by industry professionals that have years of experience with high-speed low-latency electronic music software.

GECO doesn't produce or manipulate sound directly, its purpose is to control other software or hardware that understands MIDI, OSC or CopperLan.

Features
  • 40 different control streams with both hands
  • Any control stream can be mapped to MIDI CC, Channel Pressure, Pitchbend and Pitchwheel messages on 16 different channels
  • High-resolution OSC support with customizable paths and OSC server selection
  • Full support for CopperLan data output, assignment, learning and mapping storage
  • Tunable gesture boundaries with support for defining dead zones around the center positions
  • Instantly switch between related control streams by opening or closing your hands
  • Carefully designed GUI for an immediate overview of the active MIDI mappings
  • Real-time low-latency visual feedback of your hand movements and MIDI data
  • Integrated virtual MIDI port on MacOSX, additional freely available software can be used to send MIDI to other applications on Windows
  • Connects to any known MIDI output port on your computer, for instance hardware synthesizers, on both MacOSX and Windows
  • Fully customizable user interface (colours, graphical elements)
  • Flexible document management that can be loaded while performing gestures
  • High performance and near-zero latency engine with virtually no CPU impact when the real-time visualizations are hidden
  • MIDI decimation setting to allow integration with legacy hardware that has limited MIDI bandwidth

What's New

Version 1.1.0
  • Added gesture axis boundaries that are configurable per document with minimum and maximum limits. This also allows for dead zones to be created around the center.
  • Added Channel Pressure (Aftertouch) as a supported MIDI message.
  • Added OSC output through per-gesture configurable channels.
  • Added configurable per-gesture OSC paths.
  • Added CopperLan output through per-gesture configurable channels.
  • Added CopperLan gesture destination learning.
  • Added per-document CopperLan assignments storage.
  • Per-gesture specialized output data rendering for either MIDI, OSC or CopperLan.
  • Experimental support for MacOSX 10.6.8 without any guarantees of stability nor performance since this in not an officially supported platform for the Leap Motion controller.

  • The Ultimate Utility

    This app worked easily right away, not requiring much work at all to set up. With it I was able to unlock a whole other realm of creativity within my music creation process. I look forward to the future of GECO and hope that we see more from the developer as this is something truly special!

  • Now this.. this is SOMETHIN

    By tracking the various motions possible of a hand it allows each hand to control 6 parameters simultaneously and expressively. I know of no other control surface that allows this. Seriously EPIC! BY THE WAY.. this app must use a virtual midi connection to work. Windows does NOT support this natively. Fortunately there is a very easy to use and free program for windows called LoopMIDI that can create virtual midi connections. Google it.

    Just checked out Geco MIDI, and i must say it works perfectly...useful to watch the tutorials (posted in a review, or on the developers website..) It was very easy to setup Geco MIDI with my other Software...(tested with Analog Lab) What you get out of Geco is up to you...and your imagination.. Thanks a lot!

    A well thought out app that is really useful for anyone with midi devices, not just a demonstration of leap technology. Its easy to setup, has great support by the developer. Thanks Geco!

  • A new chapter in music making

    5 of 5
    by user-3115 – July 29, 2013

    Finally a software dedicated to make natural organic movement by the body a key piece of music making. Geco has a straightforward interface and takes minutes to learn and master. The support and community around Geco is reason alone to get the software and see where it takes us in the future.

  • Everything I'd hoped a MIDI Leap app would be!

    5 of 5
    by user-880 – July 30, 2013

    I pre-ordered the Leap Motion specifically with plans to use it as a MIDI controller. This the only MIDI app I've tried for Leap but I can't see myself needing to try any others - this does everything I wanted and more. The fact that Geco is automatically picked up as a MIDI input was a nice surprise, and the configuration options for gestures are simple, effective and well thought out (Rest Value is really useful!) Highly recommended, especially for experimental/electronica artists.

  • Dream come true

    I ordered my Leap Motion a year in advance BEFORE there were any MIDI related apps available and when I heard about Geco it answered all of my questions as to how Leap will start helping move music production forward. Technically it works great and I am still getting used to the sensitivity of the Leap. Creatively this is limitless and WELL WORTH the $10. Honestly, when I saw the video on Youtube about it I told my friends I would pay $100 for it!!!
