The Bass Sleeve: A Real-time Gesture based Controller for Live Electric Bass Performance.

The Bass Sleeve is a real-time gesture based controller for live electric bass performance.  It uses an arduino board with a combination of flex sensors, FSR’s, and an accelerometer to map the movements of a performer to sampling and real-time audio processing including pitch shifting, delay and low pass filtering.

Rough Sketch of some new electro acoustic stuff.  Just testing out to see if this works on my blog.

This is the actual soundfield prototype microphone.  Built using 6 unidirectional cardioid microphones.  The mic is used to create a XYZW sound image.  The system uses rubber bands and pins to attach the mics to each axis position.

These are the output cables for the home made soundfield microphone.  The outputs are XLR out off the breadboard.  U nails and electrical conduit fastners were used to ease the tension off the cables.  Tension can play a big factor in the longevity of the cable.  The outputs of the line drivers were run to the bottom side of the breadboard to avoid any interference created by the power supply.
