Audio-rate sensor interface

in Blog

2 April 2012

A 2 channel, high speed, low latency analog sensor interface for time critical applications such as musical instrument augmentation and percussion interfaces when used with accelerometers.

Uses analog audio inputs on computer/audio interface to transport sensor signals. Thanks to the high sample rate and low latency of this system, sensors attached to this interface are particularly effective at controling audio DSP processes such as ‘scratching’ through pre-recorded samples much like a vinyl record on a turntable.

Used by Richard Baker for his piece “Tyranny of Fun” (sound design by Nye Parry).
