Here’s a quick demo demonstrating the new touch sensitivity of the new software v0.99 for the Madrona Labs Soundplane.
In the demo, Randy Jones is playing a string sound with Aalto over OSC, and simultaneously, a piano with Logic over MIDI.
The new code stores a snapshot of finger pressure at each point on the Soundplane surface. It uses this information to determine what is and what isn’t a touch with much better confidence than before. It also normalizes the force over the surface for smoother playing.
The Soundplane is a new controller that detects a wide range of touches on its walnut playing surface, from a light tickle to a very firm press. The Soundplane A can be configured as either a 150-note keyboard with position and pressure sensing on each key, or as one continuous surface.
