Hi Carlos,
There's a GPL v3 project on Sourceforge for using a webcam as midi input,
pmidic , unfortunately it's only available
in a windows version though the programmer planned to do a linux version
too.
(I'm friends with him on facebook and it doesn't really look like he's gonna
write one soon, but when I said I wanted to write the linux version , he
liked it, too bad I can't program well enough to finish the job.)
I played with pmidic for a while (on a windows xp setup IIRC) and could make
my synth produce a low bell when I walked to the left of the camera field
and a high bell when walking to the right :) That's been a while, I don't
remember the problems when I tested it using wine but it didn't work for me.

Looking forward to see anything that comes up from your quest ...

Peter

Hi dear folks.I would like to do some kind of a survey to know abou=

It's usual to see piano keyboards and controller boards, i.e. Behri=

ducts, which I know many of them, I'm rather interested in something li=
ke (inexpensive and) strange MIDI controllers, pedal boards, Arduinos, DIY =
HW... that allow controlling and have interaction with applications, whethe=
r it's Ardour, Rosegarden, Freewheeling, Sooperlooper, Pd, Supercolide=
r,
Mixxx ...Why this? I've been willing for a long time now to buy=
an audio interface with MIDI and maybe some controller, but at the moment =
I'm still stuck with just my keyboard and mouse; it's ok with DAWs =
but an inconvenient when using live loopers (most of all when playing guita=

Thanks in advance.-- Carl=
