To make up for the missed month, here is another post that finally came out of drafts on a similar topic.

Since forever I had this idea about creating and altering music or sound with just a wave of a hand. With more free time available after I finished my master’s and reduced amount of procrastination, I set a goal to at least do some fun project that is related to this idea. And after LEAP Motion controller was ordered and delivered to my door I had no excuses to postpone it any longer.

For my first proof-of-concept, I decided to make a simple synthesizer that will take input from LEAP and use the distance to hand as one parameter to generate simple sound. So here I present to you simple tutorial on how to do integrate LEAP as a controller into PureData (PD). I will be using Ubuntu environment (Kubuntu 16.06), but I believe it can be easily done for other Debian-based distributions and not so easily, but still possible on other ones. Source code is available on GitHub under GPLv3.

Since I am working with different OS’s and reinstalling them on different devices due to a multitude of reasons (e.g. Windows requires reinstalling every 2~3 years to be stable), I decided to compile a list of software and tools that are essential for me for comfortable usage and/or working. I don’t think everybody needs all of them, but if you haven’t heard of some, I recommend to take a look and give it a try. Who knows, maybe it will lead to “How could I live without it before!” moment. Cross-platformness is one of the important characteristics, so if not mentioned otherwise, it at least works on Windows, Mac, Ubuntu/Debian, and Android.

A beginning is half of the work done, right? Well, finally I decided to maintain a blog, where I can share some projects of mine that might be interesting to other people. However, don’t expect eloquent novel-sized passages that appear here weekly.
