Core magazine and Mark EG present a first hand video review of NI MATE by Delicode at the BPM NEC DJ/Production Show 2012.
Hi fellow tech-heads! Delicodes NI MATE was another of the star players at the BPM 2012 DJ/Production Show and Music Conference @ The NEC in Birmingham. It's essentially a piece of software that will allow you to control Ableton (or any other DAW) with your hands and body by using an Xbox Kinect unit. Utilizing 'motion capture', it is now on Version 1.1 and was uncovered exclusively at the BPM DJ/Music Conference @ The NEC in Birmingham. It is quite revolutionary!
Check my video interview/review with the guys here:
New features in v1.1 (full license owners):
MIDI Trigger mode -- You can create three layers of trigger areas around the closest active user. Each layer can have up to 12 triggers and the trigger positioning can be edited in many ways. For more info check out the documentation.
Dual Syphon & FFGL output -- You can now select a secondary live view mode to output through Syphon on OS X and through the updated NI mate FreeFrameGL plugin on Windows. The output can be selected by simply shift-clicking any of the available output modes.
Hand velocity per axis can now be sent as relative MIDI messages.
QR code reading -- NI mate can now read QR codes and send the read data to a client application through OSC. For more info check the documentation.
Linear depth live view mode where the depth values haven't been altered for better local contrast. This mode is great for those situations where you need to know the actual depth of a location in the live view image. For more info see the documentation.
Option for undistorted depth image in the preferences.
New features in v1.1 (also for trial licensees):
MIDI Trigger mode -- One layer of two MIDI triggers.
All Syphon and FreeFrameGL feeds now have the ghost view as an alpha channel.
Ghost now has the option to draw all users regardless of there being an active user.
