! Note ! Fantastick works with all iOS devices and versions. To support the tall screen size of iPhone 5, download "Fantastick Gold Edition".

Use your iPhone/iPod/iPad with Max/MSP or Pure Data!

Fantastick turns your device to a custom multitouch controller. Send multitouch data to the host program and receive drawing commands.

Instead of a limited set of builtin-widgets, the interface logic resides in Max/MSP and only drawing commands are sent to the device. Build interfaces that ..

- work and look exactly the way you want
- change dynamically to fit the musical context
- are experimental and would not be possible with other apps

Watch this intro:


- Minimalistic, fullscreen control area with nothing on it but what you provide.

- Multitouch-events on the device are forwarded to your host via UDP. Information includes the touch state (begin, move, end) and coordinates for all touch points.

- Designed for no-hassle: zero-click startup, the device does not sleep or suspend network connection, flicker- and lag-free.

- Displaying images (fetched with URLs) and caching them on the device for use on non-networked locations.

- Basic drawing with lines, boxes and text.

- Advanced drawing with OpenGL.

NOTE: this app works together with other software. When launched you get a black screen, what happens then is up to you. Visit the website for examples and documentation.
