Another addition to our ADDAC300’s Expressive Controls Series.
Preceded by the release of our ADDAC303 Muscle Sensing module this is the second module we make to take advantage of the physical body as a control source.
This module originated from a simple idea: using one’s heart beat as a control source.
Using a clip-on sensor, that can be attached to a finger or an ear lobe, the user’s heart rate will be aquired by sensing the blood flow passing under the sensor. This pulse will generate a trigger and an AD envelope.
Clip-on sensor will be provided with the module.
0 +5v Trigger output
0 +10v Envelope output with:
Attack, Decay, Amplitude and Offset controls
Two leds monitor the Trigger and Envelope Outputs
This module is also available as a DIY Kit from Thonk:
