From Kinect to Ableton LIVE

Hi everybody
I apologize for my bad english speaking :-/

Really nice for me having your advices.

  1. I’d like to use a depth sensor with TouchDesigner (to control sound in Ableton LIVE) ; which depth sensor would you please advise ?

Maybe my old Kinect model 1414 is still ok… ???..

  1. I’ve understood that it would be better using a Windows PC (than my Mac OSX)… but which caracteristics please => processor ? RAM ? Graphic card ?

  2. And… is it necessary using a soft between the depth sensor and TouchDesigner, or is TouchDesigner able to capture the depth sensor’s picture ?

Thanks so much for your precious help.
