QSG-RU Quad Soundscape Generator- Río Uruguay - 2013, Marco Colasso. marco.colasso (a)

Quad Soundscape Generator A realtime soundscape generator for tabletop surfaces. Perceptual classifications of sound and environment are being used to get an holistic management of the sound by the user, being complemented with adaptative mapping techniques commanded by the logic engine. In this way we want to control the whole system away from the rational analysis used daily in the creation and manipulation of sound.


This Application is Cross-platform. In order to run this code, you need 3 programs and some externals.


Use Reactivision or a TUIO compatible software to track fiducials and objects.

Logic + Visuals

Use processing version 1.2.1 or 1.5.1, I haven´t ported to version 2.0 yet.

Libraries: oscP5/netP5



Pure Data

Instal Pure Data Extended.

Load Included Externals.

Download and Import Soundhack Library +pitchdelay~ +bubbler~ Freeware from SoundHack

  1. USAGE

1- Open Reactivision / TuioSimulator.jar

2- Run Processing with: _01_qsgVisuales.pde

3- Run Pure Data: 0_qsgRU.pd
