Audium Visium is an audiovisual, sample-based instrument created within a two week time span. It has 8 sample buttons, 3 looping buttons, 4 effects knobs, 1 Arduino, 1 projector, and an iPhone that changes soundbanks when touched. The instrument was crafted, built, and programmed by Kenneth Guglielmino. The motion graphics were made by James Simpson.
The entire project was programmed in MAX5. I made my own patch for the instrument itself and then used the Maxuino Patch to communicate with the Arduino and then the C74 patch to communicate with the iPhone.
The project patches can be downloaded here: http://www.mediafire.com/?5eedl516djf0kel.

How was MAX used?
