Re: Wind sensor fall response time.

Hey all! All good fun, I do intend to get back to this, I just poked my head in as this is on my list as my "Christmas Project" assuming I actually get any time :) I will update as and when I make any progress, the high-temp suggestion was my P1. Once again I need to thank MD for their excellent com...

Midi Ocarina/Flute/Recorder/Breath controller.

Hello all! My current project is a midi Ocarina - aiming to emulate a 4 hole pendant style initially, with more interesting Ocarinas and instruments to come later. Stage 1 - Currently I can play midi notes, read touch sensors using digital inputs and read the breath sensor output. Separately..... In...

Re: Wind sensor fall response time.

Still trying to wrap my head around how to ensure it still have that "mouthfeel" of a real instrument, I.E. they provide resistance but they aren't completely sealed. Considering some kind of Pitot style tube which works on a differential pressure from direct and static pressures in the breath strea...

(although there aren't enough samples on that one) http://cabe.multiplay.co....

Re: Wind sensor fall response time.

All excellent points, I did briefly consider stripping a MAF meter from a car as they also use a similar hot wire system. Sadly are are all a little too "robust", as engine bays are some of the nastiest places to shove tech, they all appear to need 12v and have much thicker wires. Also I wasnt putti...

Re: Wind sensor fall response time.

Paul, That sounds awesome! I had looked at the DIY hot-wire anemometer using a small torch bulb, but anyone who has seen a roadie* load a van knows if you can make it solid state, you really should :) I had also noticed the snap off section which is why I was curious about it, for future iterations ...

Aiming to emulate a 4 hole pendant style initially, more interesting Ocarinas to come later :) I have been fiddling with the Wind Sensor for the last couple of days and have been impressed with the sensitivity and responsiven...
