miidii maps input from the Nintendo wiimote and the Nintendo
Board to MIDI signals.
This allows you to control your synthesizers and effect plugins via the wii
controllers in realtime!
The Wii Balance
Board control allows you to map your body movements to
controller and fader movements! Spice up your live performances!
- support for wiimote and Balance Board
- free adjustable mapping from buttons and axis to MIDI controllers
- different modes for buttons:
- trigger sends a signal until the selected button is released. Useful for starting
samples or activating effects for short times
- mute_trigger sends a zero-value to the selected controller as long as
the button is pressed. Practically it is the inverse function of 'trigger'.
This mode is useful for muting tracks for a short time or for deactivating
an effect for a short time.
- switch changes the controller state from a zero value to the maximum
value and vice versa on each button press. This is useful to mute or demute
tracks or effects permanently.
Note that you do not need the wii itself! You can connect your wiimote and
the balance board directly to your PC via Bluetooth.
This software is distributed for free!

A sample application of miidii:
Attach the wiimote controller to your guitar and control two different
effect parameters by moving your guitar neck. For example, control the
amount of distortion by moving your guitar back and forth and control a
wah-wah effect by moving the guitar neck up and down.
...and the really cool thing:
Miidii comes with an awesome knight rider effect on the wiimote ;)
