The Pieces Come Together
In the wake of the end of semester, travel, office moving, and various other goings-on, I’ve not been able to write very much lately. I’m going to try and get back on my regularly weekly updates as I move forward into the new year and semester. However, I have been busy with my prototype. I have been mounting the sensors to the microphone stand and testing them. So far I have a ring of slider controllers near the base and two grip sensors near the top. I’ve envisioned the sliders to work as a mini mixing board, so that performers can tweak their sound levels while on stage. The grip sensor is the first of several “expression” sensors, that will allow the performer to emphasize and manipulate different parts of the song in real time.
Unfortunately, I have lost my digital camera, so in order to show the
progress, I’ve had to upload a picture from a webcam which isn’t the
best quality. I should have another camera (hopefully better than the
previous one) as soon as I can afford it.
