briq prototype

BRIQ is a combination of soft- and hardware designed to be used to develop complex digital instruments. The user is able to assemble a hardware interface tailored to his needs, which he then can program with a node-based computer language similar to products such as NI Reaktor, Max MSP or PD.

BRIQ is the diploma thesis of Benedikt Steinle. I developed a software prototype of the node-based computer language in flash, using the new sound API of Flashplayer 10 to actually be able to synthesize sound in flash.

We were planning to release an alpha version to the public at some point, but we're to busy doing other things at the moment, so here is a video for you to see how it works.

Hey David! This is amazing! The interface is exactly what I would imagine as a perfect touch interface. Are you using any external libs? If not, are you planning to release the GUI/TUI as opensource? Thanks, Tomek

Hi Og2t,
i only use puremvc as a framework, but no libs regarding interface or soundgenerating. I would release some code, but as always if you work on a free project it is still quite messy and not commented. If I come round to cleaning it up, I will. But in the meantime I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the internals.
