SDIY Class # 6 - The Sensor Sandwich : A Ribbon Controller with Pressure Sensitivity

Published on May 1, 2017 Synth Diy Guy

"In this class we go through devising and constructing a simple ribbon controller made up of two sensors sandwiched together: A Softpot ribbon from Sparkfun, and a pressure sensor lifted from a broken keybed. A very fun way to interact with your analog synthesizers!

Some ideas: Add an attenuator for the ribbon CV output. Make the circuit into a module (will work fine in 12v) and use a din cable to send the sensor data from the controller to the module. Make a board with many of these in different sizes, joysticks and an antenna, to control different parameters. The possibilities are endless!
