FingaMIDI Description

FingaMIDI is a replacement driver for the ADB trackpad found in Apple G4 PowerBooks and second generation (white) iBooks. It 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, its 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 sends user-configurable note on and note off messages. The software consists of four parts: Replacement trackpad driver kernel extension User-space CoreMIDI driver Preference pane Command line tool to allow switching between modes.
