The Modality Toolkit is designed and developed by the ModalityTeam, a group of people harbouring both users and developers of SuperCollider. It is free software published under the GPL.

The central idea behind the Modality-toolkit is to simplify creation of individual (electronic) instruments with SuperCollider, using controllers of various kinds. To this end, a common code interface, MKtl, is used for connecting controllers from various sources (and protocols). These are atm. HID, MIDI, and OSC.

The name Modality arose from the idea to scaffold the creation of modal interfaces, i.e. to create interfaces where one physical controller can be used for different purposes and it is possible to switch its functionality, even at runtime. It is our believe that integration of such on-the-fly remapping features helps to create a setup much more flexible, powerful, and interesting to play. Such a modal interface allows to cope with fast changes of overall direction as it can be necessary when e.g. improvising with musicians playing acoustic instruments.
