The ThunderWave Ribbon Controller by The Electronic Peasant


ThunderWave Ribbon Controller Demonstration Published on May 23, 2020 epeasant


A new DIY percussion instrument in via The Electronic Peasant:

"The ThunderWave is a new type of electronic percussion instrument that you can build yourself. Instead of the traditional round drum pads, the ThunderWave uses curved ribbon controllers and force sensitive technology to create an expressive and intuitive interface that is both fun and easy to play. The instrument provides standard trigger, gate, and CV outputs, including volt/octave, for use with analog synthesizers. Each ribbon can also be divided into up to thirteen different zones, for consistent sounds using two drum sticks at slightly different positions. A 'striking force' trigger output and two force based envelope generators for each ribbon are also included. The ThunderWave is designed for the advanced DIYer, and can be built using common, easily available parts and tools.

The complete ThunderWave project can be found on the Electronic Peasant website, including detailed building guides and videos."
