In his experiment, Carlos connects the Midimo App to Ableton Live and controls the Frequency Modulation Depth effect using the Pan motion on his iOS device.
Midimo connects (via Bluetooth, Wifi or USB) and uses 3D motion (Roll, Tilt, Pan) to control parameters in all major DAWs and MIDI compatible software and hardware. Midimo also works with non-musical software that supports control via MIDI CC.

Feel your stress sail away by listening to the soothing sounds of the EWI, performed by FloVerse Artist Scientist Sam Davidson. The EWI (pronounced EE-wee) stands for Electronic Wind Instrument, a wind synthesizer that uses breath to control MIDI. In the words of Sam’s idol, Michael Brecker, the EWI Master describes the EWI as being capable of “playing every part of a symphony from Venus”. You simply use your breath and fingers like a saxophone. But you connect your electric saxophone to a computer program like Ableton to build the sonic layers with MIDI patch sounds. To hear the EWI, hop on this inter-galactic spaceship know as Brasstronaut. The critically acclaimed indie-rock band that Sam Davidson is a member of. Or take a listen to his solo project, Skim Milk, which is rooted in the love of exploring old music and mixing it with a unique brand of instrumental hip-hop.
March 14 is Pi day. It occurs on the 14 day of the 3rd month, which is equal to Pi’s approximation 3.14. On Pi day, we appreciate the number and eat a slice of delicious pie. Pi is the mathematical constant defined as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The circle of fifths in music theory is the geometric shape of a circle. The circumference of a circle is equal to C = 2𝜋r. In the Stephon Alexander book called The Jazz of Physics: The Link between Music and the Structure of the Universe. Alexander explains how the jazz master saxophonist John Coltrane developed a more advanced version of the circle of fifths, called ‘The Coltrane Circle’. The Coltrane Circle diagram is the same geometric pattern that inspired Albert Einstein’s quantum theory. Today is also the 142nd birthday of the famous artist-scientist Albert Einstein, who was born March 14, 1879.
