Keyboard Based Playback for Musical Theatre

MellowTron was designed per the request of the Oberlin Musical Theatre association for their production of Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins. In order to facilitate audio playback in a hostile space like the one Assassins was performed in required the development of a patch that could quickly read in a large amount of audio files, list them in any order the user desires, and play them back in an efficient manner triggered by MIDI controller, in this case an AKAI MPK Mini.
