Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This research investigates development of sound diffusion software for the Apple iPhone and iPad. It is specifically written for Apollo Creative's 'Ensemble' system, which is an interactive audio, lighting and video software and hardware package. It allows users to design software instruments for sound installations and shows, reacting to a range of input sensors. The iPhone software controls the surround sound parameters of Ensemble. The user interface is designed to accommodate a range of users, including educators, composers and sound designers. The software incorporates the OpenFrameworks library [9] and communicates with 'Ensemble' using the Open Sound Control (OSC) [15] protocol over wireless TCP/IP.
