MIDI Controlled Grasshopper
I developed this proof of concept for controlling Grasshopper with knobs and sliders on a hardware MIDI controller. I created a custom .NET application that reads the current positions of the knobs on a MIDI controller and writes their values to a text file. I then setup Grasshopper to read in the values from the file and use them to generated the geometry shown.
Currently I’m working on developing a set of custom Grasshopper components, which will provide the same functionality without requiring an external application to be running. Here’s a video of the first working version of these custom components.
