Moog Demos An iPad-Controlled Little Phatty

The Best Of Both Digital And Analog Technology?      17/06/10

This official Moog Music video highlights how you can use an Apple iPad to control a Little Phatty synthesizer and use the combination to open up new performance options. 

Moog associate Ben Hovey demonstrates his setup:

  • Gestures are captures on the iPad running TouchOSC, with Hovey's custom template;
  • The resulting signals are sent wirelessly to the laptop;
  • The laptop is connected to the MIDI in of the Little Phatty. 

Hovey's setup introduces new options for controlling the Little Phatty, such as touchscreen control of an X-Y filter controller.

Does this work with a Little Phatty Tribute Editon (if connected via MIDI to a MIDI-hub such a a MOTU-TImepiece to a Mac)?
