Using Microsoft's motion-sensing camera, LuteKinduct allows a user to adjust playback speed and volume of an audio file in real time. This is implemented in C# and uses the Kinect SDK, SoundTouchSharp, and NAudio libaries to apply a time-stretching algorithm by comparing average velocities of gestures.
