Tekh Tonic :: Hi-tech OSC and MIDI controller suite

What's new?
  • Now on sale!
  • Brand new Ragdoll controller - create notes by throwing a ragdoll around
  • Now comes with 2 free companion apps!
What is Tekh Tonic

Tekh Tonic is an OSC/MIDI control interface reimagined for today’s high-tekh motion capture input devices. We combine the highly accurate input data from the Leap Motion Controller with the unlimited possibilities of a 3D physics engine to give you a totally new way to control MIDI and OSC devices.

Features
  • Both MIDI and OSC output
  • 6 highly unique controllers ( and more to come )
  • Customisable physics
  • Dynamic preset system
  • Comprehensive configuration options
  • V2 Leap Motion Controller software
Companion Apps
  • Grain Plane is a synthesiser made from the ground up to work with Tekh Tonic's Morph controller. It turns any sound you load into it into a rich, gesture-controlled pad.
  • Tekh Map is a set of MaxForLive devices, designed to get the most out of Tekh Tonic's OSC output right inside Ableton Live.
What can it do

Tekh Tonic can be used with any application that can be controlled with OSC or MIDI. We will be releasing some companion apps that will run alongside Tekh Tonic and allow you to control synthesizers and visuals out-of-the-box. Check back for links to these soon.

  • Lots of possibilities, AND well executed.

    It only tracks single hand and doesn't offer as many gestures as geco (which I also bought), but as a result, it gives me much more stable (and USABLE!) input. Runs smoothly and looks pretty cool without being overly tacky, and I appreciate that 3D interface. No crashes or bugs. Very stable. Good work. One of my favourite features of tekh-tonic is actually the 'Grain Plane' app that came with my purchase, and playing with the instrument is extremely addictive.

     


  • Move from one computer to another

    Hi, I want to use the app on another computer, but I have the message "You've already installed this app on the maximum number of devices". If I put the first one in the App Home's trash it doesn't change anything. How can I reset or delete it from previous computers to allow a "fresh" new install ? Thanks !

    I have played with quite a few of the leap motion controllers for midi and osc. This one is the best so far. A lot of it is because of using the V2 software for the leap and the other is the interface. I especially like the zenith interface and the max for live integration via OSC. I would love a way to map the zenith easily to 12 step circle of 5ths with z access controlling octave and each of the 12 steps being able to map to a color. Worth the money. Hope to use this with DK2

    Thanks, glad you like it. The V2 SDK definitely allowed us to get a whole lot more out of it, especially when being used in a live performance context. We are releasing a free, fully mappable synth that will run alongside Tekh Tonic soon. We will include a mapping preset like you described for the Zenith controller :)

  • A bit pricey but worth it.

    Great concept in that it doesn't just map the LMC to midi and OSC but rather offers you a workspace to manipulate as a virtual controller and these workspace interactions output the midi and OSC. So far I find that a more intuitive scheme than the (also great) Gecko, certainly the spacial visualisation offers better feedback of what you're doing. Great stuff!

  • Needs Work

    The visual interface is great but I can't get nearly anything to work, including midi. (I'm not beginner to OSC or midi mapping either) Has great potential though

    This bug has now been addressed. A new build has been submitted and will be online as soon as it is approved.

    Easy setting up if you are used to make music with any DAW or Hardware synth. The app is incredibly functional and in my laptop running so well with Ableton and m4L without any CPU/RAM issue.

  • Fun, but really needs its own output

    4 of 5
    by WillCarr – February 1, 2015

    This is a great program, and shows off the V2 software very well, however I think it could really do with its own output. Seeing as grain plane is the only program you can get easily to use with it, It is quite a lot of work to get running. The amount of work put into it clearly shows, but I think for £10, a simple audio output would make it worth it.
