Radio Drum The Radio Drum is an analyzer of gestural data. It is a three- dimensional controller, a sort of computerized musical drum. Invented in the late 1980’s, the Radio Drum uses the “jeu de jacquet” or “Backgammon” form of capacitive sensing to interpret the gestures of a performer. Figure from ATT Bell Laboratory Radio Drum Manual By using a displacement algorithm, the four signals can be transformed into three data channels representing the x,y,z displacement versus time. Various drumming motions can be characterized by the signals generated by the drumsticks versus antennas displacements.

MATRIXSYNTH frequencycentral | the online resource for frequenycentral products and designs New Metasonix Product Unveiled! Well, I've been sitting on this information for a little over a week now, and it's been HARD! Haha, seriously. Lucky me, Eric Barbour once again gave me permission to break the news of his new product, on the eve of the NAMM show. He said "tuesday morning", but really wasn't clear on what time ;) Since it's now technically tuesday morning (yeah, even in California, I waited....), and since there's already been a bit of info starting to float around, I'm not sitting on this any longer! Anyway, without further ado, yes you speculating bastards, yes indeed... Some people prayed, some wept, some swore he would never do it. I do wish I had an image of Dave's art on the other side. It's the psychotic Metasonix amp. Little is known at the moment - just the pics, that Dave's art will be on the other side, and that's it. Another question that's nagging at me - is Eric going to get in trouble at NAMM for the name of the product and the artwork? Thanks Eric! PS.

Make Your Own Dry Transfer Decals and Instant Printed Circuit Boards! Seb's Synth-DIY Pages - 4xD This is a brief guide to surface mount soldering by hand. It is intended to enable those without any surface mount soldering experience to be able to assemble a 4xD or Digi-Mod PCB. What you will need Construction order The 4xD and Digi-Mod circuit boards are quite densely packed so you definitely want to solder all the surface mount parts first otherwise the bigger thru-hole parts will get in the way. It doesn't really matter which order you solder the surface mount components, although depending on the shape of your soldering iron bit you may find it easier to solder the ICs before the surrounding capacitors and resistors. Iron temperature I tend to work with quite a hot iron temperature (around 375°C) which makes things quicker and is needed for the fine pitch IC soldering technique below to work well. Soldering 0805 chip resistors and capacitors Apply flux to both pads. Soldering SOT-23 transistors Apply flux to all 3 pads. Soldering medium pitch ICs (i.e. the 1.27mm pitch SRAM ICs)

Seb's Synth-DIY Pages - Home Page These pages are my attempt to give something back to the synthesiser DIY community. The projects listed on these pages would not have been possible without the help of many knowledgable people who share their projects and expertise on their websites and on the synth-diy mailing list. So thank you all! Listed first are completed and fully working projects, then below are my 'under development' projects which over time will get updated on this website. Feel free to get in contact if you have any questions or comments, or indeed if you spot any errors! Fair Use Policy All the designs, schematics, PCB layouts and source code on this website are my own unless otherwise stated.

Glad you like the forum.
