Tell us about yourself!
Thanks. Your design looks much more complete than other quick&dirty EWI attempts and I really liked how you provided more details about possible improvement options.I agree that pressure sensor might be better than microphone to avoid "false positives" caused by noises. Also, I'd like to add a pressure sensitive resistor pad somewhere to trigger vibrato effect (of course only for synths that support it).But I guess I'll be lazy and will use thermoplastic to create some parts of it :D At least for the first prototype.
Just found this one:Similar idea, but seems simpler to make and better results. Of course, with some cheating - using ready-made xylophone.
