Abstract:

This paper introduces the T-Patch, a software application that streamlines the use of T-Stick Digital Musical Instruments (DMIs). It offers a user-friendly interface for gesture extraction, mapping, signal conditioning, sound synthesis, and sequencing with cues, enabling composers to create music without programming. Our main contribution is two-fold: (1) providing a versatile software solution to address the current lack of music-making support for T-Stick DMIs, and (2) highlighting the importance of demonstration content, such as a video, to showcase the instrument’s capabilities and inspire new users. The T-Patch reduces the barrier to entry for using the T-Stick DMI and offers a shared software solution for various music-making scenarios.
