I finished my project thesis including general information about the Microsoft Kinect sensor device as well as a detailed documentation about it’s application in combination with Pure Data and Gem.
This document might be useful for people working with the Kinect in combination with interactive sound and video installations and performances.

A very crucial and maybe often underestimated point for working with (volume) faders, especially in live electronics application is their curve/behavior. Which range does it cover? How fast does „it“ get „loud“. What is the behavior around the +0 dB mark?
I sampled the midi volume fader behavior from several of the most popular Digital Audio Workstations. The difference is quite obvious as you can see in the graph to the right.
I made a Pure Data abstraction as replacement for the frequently used [fadtorms] or [dbtorms]. In connection with the .txt sample files it can be used to scale your midi fader input.

I’ll be presenting my work for the Kinect sensor and Pure Data/Gem at the LIVE INTERFACES: Performance, Art, Music conference.
A substantial project report about all Kinect plugins and examples will be available soon.
Find some examples about the usage of the externals pix_freenect, pix_openni, pix_threshold_depth, pix_depth2rgba, pix_head_pose_estimation on the Github page http://github.com/kronihias/pd-kinect-examples

If you are working with Xbox Kinect Sensor here is another goodie for you – A pure data / Gem external to get Kinect rgb and depth streams as well as skeleton tracking and multiple hand tracking via OpenNI
Look at this page if you don’t know how to install a Pd-External.
To control tilt, led and output accelerometer data you can use libfreenect based http://github.com/kronihias/freenect.
To get audio streams you can use libfreenect based http://github.com/kronihias/freenect_audio.
