An Investigation into Utilizing Opto-Sensors to Function as Parts of MIDI Controllers

The presented research focuses on the application of MIDI controllers utilizing opto-sensors to read and translate physical contact into controllable MIDI information. The described technology was found to provide improved interaction and degree of movement translation with other MIDI-capable devices. To demonstrate this, a projection controller using existing infrared technology will be used in conjunction with a microcontroller allowing for communication between analog and digital control signals.
