Headtracker directions collection

Author 2 Subscribed Users |

Hi all,
I’m building a patch for binaural reproduction. I would want to have my listener to use a headtracker and point his/her nose to the direction where they would hear the sound coming from (point to source direction).
I would like to register these directions for later analysis. Was thinking of getting some device where could, at the press of a button send to the patch a way of register on a list the actual direction output by the headtracker.
I’m fairly new to max/msp and using Spat. Has anyone done something similar? How? I’ll be using Fastrak headtracker for this.

As far as I understand, you already have the headtracker part working, and you essentially need something to trigger/save the pointed directions.
Any kind of devices that Max supports can be used for that (MIDI, USB, bluetooth, audio, whatever).
One simple solution that we have used was a MIDI foot switch pedal.
