Magnetic Table CV controller

Post by pulse_divider »

I just noticed this on my friend's blog, it's a CV controller that he built. I need to go check it out sometime, it looks awesome!

That is amazing! I love the sound as it locks onto the notes, the wobble is just beautiful.

Has anybody here built one of these? I'm going to. I want to use it for audience interaction with a patch in an installation I'm planning.

That's one of the best, most out of the box thinking projects I've seen for months!

I think of improving this by using a sferical plate instead of the flat one - the distance from the rod to the plate would be independent of the rod's angle - you wouldn't have to use stacked magnets and rod's moves would be more predictable.

ahh, the idea of a spherical/wok surface is a good one. All you'd have to do is try to match the radius of the pivot arm thing to the radius of the curve and it should be pretty consistent. I didn't see this before today, what an awesome idea!

Has it really been that long already. :eek:

Got this project done just in time to take it out for an installation where dozens of people played with it. It was really cool watching them, because mostly they had little idea how it worked. They often seemed to think the Influencer (as I call it) was generating the sound itself. The magnets fascinated them. And some people fooled around with the magnets, to some deleterious effect. But it went off very well as an event.
