junXion © Lite
junXion Lite © is a software application for audio/music performers, art installation makers, theatre makers etc. The application is based upon junXion v4 (more info) but offers a limited feature set. Only HID devices and one WiiRemote is supported.
junXion Lite is a Mac OS X data routing application that allows the connection of any HID compliant game controller or other input device and defines, in an easy user interface, the translation of each key or joystick action into a specific MIDI event. The resulting MIDI data is then available to any audio/music software that runs on that Mac or can be send to external MIDI interfaces.

Some of the above functionality has successfully been applied in other STEIM systems for live performance: LiSa, The Lick Machine, SensorLab etc.
The Amsterdam based STEIM foundation and its researchers have been at the forefront of the invention of physical input devices and touch based hard-and software instruments for live electronic music performance since the early 70'es. STEIM's longtime director Michel Waisvisz, unfortunately now deceased, was one of the driving forces behind performances with free movement hand worn sensor/keyboards and has, together with programmer Frank Baldé, designed several hard core performance systems.
