Tau MIDI (requires EigenD 1.4.7 or later)

This is a custom setup for the Eigenharp Tau that creates two MIDI outputs, one for the main playing keys and another one for the percussion keys. The main keyboard has four keys configured as three-dimensional MIDI CC controllers where each axis sends out data to a dedicated CC number.

Through the Routing Matrix, the MIDI mappings can be easily configured and it comes with a number of useful default mappings.

The topmost switches are configured to decrease or increase the tonic and octave of the main playing keys. The middle switches give direct access to the first four scales that are available (major, harmonic minor, melodic minor, chromatic).

The Stage tab allows control over the scale, tonic, octave, MIDI channels, velocity control, pitch bend and pedal calibration.

You can download the setup from here:


After unzipping the setup, you have to move the file 'tau 2 ~ MIDI' to the setups directory that corresponds to the version of EigenD that you're running. For instance, if you're using EigenD 1.4.7, the directory will be '/Users/youruser/Library/Eigenlabs/1.4.7-testing/setups' on MacOSX and 'C:\Users\youruser\Documents\Eigenlabs\1.4.7-testing\setups' on Windows.

If you're interested in how this setup was built using Belcanto, you can download the scripts from Tau MIDI From Scratch.
