Webcam Theremin

May 07 2012 | 11:40 am

Hi all,

I am a newcomer to Max/MSP and I have been working on a patch for several days now, tying to understand the jit. objects. My goal is to produce a webcam theremin, where the movements I make in the jit.window (via the use of jit.grab) are tracked and converted into audio (like a theremin is). I have watched several video’s:

However, I am still really struggling; as I said I am a newcomer to Max. Would any of you be able to help me? Guide me in the right direction? It would be very much appreciated.


p.s. hopefully I have attached my patch correctly for you to take a look

It is quite simple really, just get the x and y coordinates and assign scale them to fit the parameters of something you want to control.
