releases MusineKit free modular music software
Sensomusic has released
MusineKit, a free software package dedicated to the
practice of music and sound art.
MusineKit is a modular software giving immediate to
a dozen instruments grouped under different
categories (see below). Each instrument offers to
play with sounds, to adjust the parameters, create
musical sequences and drive all by input interfaces.
MusineKit uses simple graphics for the user to
directly enter a music game without prior learning.
MusineKit is an evolution of the professional
software “Usine Hollyhock” by Sensomusic.
Technically, the strength of the software is its
ability to adapt very quickly to new computer
interfaces (HID) and consistent changes proposed by
the industry. It can generate musical gestures from
our everyday technology and adapt to their regular
MusineKit can be controlled by a simple computer
keyboard or mouse, by MIDI interfaces but also by
video game controllers, CSO networks (especially for
tablets and smartphones), or by more specific
interfaces (Leap Motion i-Rig, Wiimote, tablet,
video signal, etc.).
Future technologies will be integrated in a very
reactive way into the software, helping to develop
the musical and artistic uses.
