Mapping Tools Virtual Workshop 2021

On 2 September 2021 we held the second annual workshop on the mapping tools project (libmapper and the surrounding tools). This year we had presentations and discussions covering:

  • recent related projects and publications
  • map expression syntax for supporting reducing over vectors, signal history, signal instances, and inputs to convergent maps.
  • improving distribution via package managers
  • using libmapper on embedded platforms including ESP32, Raspberry Pi, and Bela
  • integration with the game engines Godot and Unity
  • using MediaPipe as a libmapper source device
  • implications of the upcoming MIDI 2.0 protocol for interfacing with commercial hardware and software
  • proposals for future applications

Video documentation of the workshop will be posted soon!

Music Hackday Montreal


Music Hack Day comes to Montreal to explore and build the next generation of music applications. It’s a full weekend of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music + software + mobile + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it’s music related. Music Hack Day is presented by developers for developers.

Music Hack Day arrive à Montréal pour explorer et construire la prochaine génération d’applications musicales. Durant tout un week-end de programmation informatique, les participants vont conceptualiser, réaliser et présenter leur projets. Musique + logiciel + mobilité + hardware + art + le web.
