Your MIDI-Kinect interface

Please note that Kinectar has now been discontinued. It’s still available, but will not get any more updates. We are working on new software that will supersede Kinectar and will be released in the coming months.

What is Kinectar?

Kinectar is a toolkit which turns your Kinect into a MIDI controller. It needs a skeleton tracker ( either Synapse or OSCeleton ) to send it OSC data, which you then configure in Kinectar to output MIDI control values and notes based on your movement.


  • Scalable MIDI and OSC outputs
  • 4 condition-based MIDI note generators
  • Rewire compatible
  • MIDI controllable preset switching
  • Global flag system for turning things on and off
