Just got this in an email and it looks pretty interesting, particularly as it’s DIY friendly.
Coming Soon To Kickstarter
On September 16th 2019 we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for an exciting new family of touch sensors that work with Bela and other maker platforms!
Mark your diaries for September 16th 2019 when we’ll launch our new set of tools which make it easier than ever to integrate touch sensing into your music, art and interactive projects. In the meantime stay tuned for more details.
This looks interesting. I wonder what their price-point and sensor mechanism will be. Looks capacitive?
I was just beginning to look for Kaoss Pad-like x-y sensors, and found these folks…
$18 USD seems pretty reasonable for the part, though there’s inevitably some HI calibration to get it making sounds. A quick revisiting of their homepage shows a few more interesting bits, as well as quotes from some familiar names… the 2D potentiometers seem especially interesting too…
Is Trill supposed to be a software/hardware combo? Or get down to that kind of sensor price point?
Ive backed an experimenter kit too, as my other belas are now all in use…
(bela max + pepper -> eurorack, bela mini -> AE modular rack)
quite looking forward to adding these into a modular context (both AE and Eurorack), always nice to add more human contact there - though I might team them up with teensy or arduino for that as they use less power than bela mini.
I also like the idea of building a standalone instrument using them … which is probably what I’ll use the mini for.
good thing about KS is you can alter you pledge right up to end date, so I might add a few sensors/crafts to the pledge - once I decide on which projects Im going to do.
