You can now install aubio's python module using pip:

This should work for Python 2.x and Python 3.x, on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Pypy support is on its way.

Announcing ofxAubio


OpenFrameworks logo

It has been a long time since I wanted to create an add-on for OpenFrameworks, the mighty open source toolkit for creative coding.

Recently, my friends at Hand Coded asked me if they could use aubio in their application, Ledotron, to have the live music controlling the visual in real time. I can't say much more, but it's going to be something really nice.

Some people had already written addons using the aubio library to do pitch or onset detection using aubio, but I figured it would be easier to start a new project from scratch.

read more after the break...

Robot dancing

Dancing Naos

Dancing robots

Vid Podpečan writes about "teaching a humanoid robot to dance to a given song with respect to the detected beat", and uses aubio to have Aldebaran's Nao dance along the music.

He writes: "This was the very first thing I did when we bought NAO and I had lots of fun making him dance. Maybe not very sophisticated but simple enough and very amusing. And surely the whole thing would have been quite impossible without aubio. Big thanks for your work!"

Keep it groovy, Nao!
