Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The PourOver Sensor Framework is an open iOS framework designed to connect iOS control sources (hardware sensors, user input, custom algorithms) to an audio graph’s parameters. The design of the framework, motivation, and use cases are discussed. The framework is demonstrated in an end-user friendly iOS app PourOver, in which users can run Pd patches with easy access to hardware sensors and iOS APIs.
