Getting started

  1. Install requirements with pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. Open up GarageBand or Logic with a Software Instrument track
  3. cd miditouchpad and then run python play.py and drag your finger along the trackpad

Options

The default MidiPad maps the x-position on your trackpad to notes, and the y-position to velocity (loudness). It also has a few options for specifying exactly which notes are played:

  • Play notes in D major: python play.py --notes D
  • Play notes in F# minor: python play.py --notes f#
  • Change which octaves are included: python play.py --octaves 4
  • Change the latency: python play.py --latency 0.3
