New pressure sensor mounted in a Minimoog (first demo)

Published on Apr 19, 2019 kovalmoog

"This is a new pressure sensor system, installed under Minimoog's keys.
The outstanding feature of this sensor is a very smooth touch along a large physical travel (5-6mm), with a lineal and proportional modulation across this movement.

This is a work in progress since I'm adding more destination parameters to be controlled by the sensor's variation.
Until now, PWM on osc. 1 & 2, pitch on osc. 2 & 3, VCF cutoff, and hard-synced oscillators 2 & 3 can be controlled from the pressure variation.
Right now I'm adding a senoidal LFO, with its amount controlled by the pressure, applied to 3 oscillators, VCF and Final Volume.

This pressure sensor can be mounted in almost all analogue synths, even polyphonic ones. Its implementation only depends on the keyboard physical structure.

btw, this unit (S/N 6016) was signed by Bob Moog himself on june 17th, 2004, in Barcelona (Spain), during a series of visits he did in Spain, England & Japan, to promote the re-launching of Moog brand, after the Big Briar era."
