AbstractIn the past decade we have seen a growing presence of table- top systems applied to music, lately with even some prod- ucts becoming commercially available and being used by professional musicians in concerts. The development of this type of applications requires several demanding technical expertises such as input processing, graphical design, real time sound generation or interaction design, and because of this complexity they are usually developed by a multidisci- plinary group. In this paper we present the Musical Tabletop Coding Framework (MTCF) a framework for designing and coding musical tabletop applications by using the graphical pro- gramming language for digital sound processing Pure Data (Pd). With this framework we try to simplify the creation process of such type of interfaces, by removing the need of any programming skills other than those of Pd.
