Hi Cedric=2C

Wild project. I would expect the cello synthesis to be less work than the h=
and
tracking but that is only my opinion. Have you thought of using Kinnect=2C =
you=20
could eventually sell the app as 'Air Cello Hero'.

There are plenty of synths on Linux that could give you an approximation of
a cello and if your motion tracking code can send out MIDI events then it=20
would be easy to integrate with any of them - pitch and mod wheel would
give you interesting results. Don't have references for any experimental co=
de
but you might find some that is more realistic than a synth with regards to
some of the cello tonality.

Regards=2C nick.
