Wiimote to MIDI – Ableton Live

Wiimote to MIDI – Ableton Live

Following the post I did about using nintendo’s wiimote as a MIDI controller, I had loads of emails about the same issue: People using the popular music sequencer Ableton live, couldn’t setup rotation and acceleration MIDI adresses properly, as the wiimote constantly sends many values, and using ableton’s auto detect function is getting a bit crazy..

I just made a new Glovepie script to make things a bit easier, and send each value separately.
Now when you use the MIDI autodetect function, you need to Press:


- F1, F2 or F3 to get the wiimote X, Y or Z rotation value.
- F4, F5 or F6 to get the X, Y or Z acceleration values.

When this is done, you need to Press the B button to activate all these midi values (acceleration/ rotation), and you can still use all the buttons to trigger loops, effects etc..

The above link is a Glovepie script, you need to follow this tutorial to use it.

This is quite a basic update, but I know that this is gonna help some of you, and I’ll do my best to do a proper update (with infrared positioning, internal speaker and force feedback).
