FingaMIDI - MIDI controller trackpad driver for PowerBook and iBook
Version: 2.0FingaMIDI is a replacement driver for the ADB trackpad found in Apple G4 PowerBooks and second generation (white) iBooks.
Operating System: Mac OS X
FingaMIDI allows the inbuilt trackpad to be used as a three-axis MIDI controller, sending x, y and z (pressure) data as parameter change messages.
OK, it's not really pressure data but capacitance, which is proportional to the area of finger(s) or palm in contact with the pad. The trackpad button will send user-configurable note on and note off messages.
FingaMIDI consists of four parts:
· Replacement trackpad driver kernel extension
· User-space CoreMIDI driver
· Preference pane
· Command line tool to allow switching between modes
· Type 4 ADB trackpad (i.e. pre-2005 TiBook or similar)
