Mac OSX: MaxMSWiiMAC.zip
ABOUT: The Max MSWii Saber uses four sound modules to produce a lightsaber drone that comes out of a computer's stereo system. The low frequencie signals sum together to create the characteristic beating tone of a lightsaber. The tones are sent to 4 stereo busses that feed faders. The faders provide the volume envelope. The envelope is shaped by the x and y accelerometer output provided by the aka.wiiremote object. The wii remote also activates lightsaber crash samples when the accelerometer output exceeds a threshold.
