Bleep Labs Sensory Coupler Lets You Control Your Modular Synth With Touch, Proximity, Magnetic Fields, Motion & More

Bleep Labs has introduced the Sensory Coupler, a new Eurorack module that lets you convert touch, proximity, light, magnetic fields, motion, and more into CV and gate signals.

Features:

  • Built-in touch contact and 1/8? TRS jack sensor interface. Other sensors and devices like expression pedals can be easily added. DIY info coming soon.
  • Calibration mode. Sensors produce different readings in different environments, the Sensory Coupler calibrates them to utilize the entire 0-10V CV output range.
  • CV output based on calibrated or raw sensor data. 0-10V.
  • Two gate outputs. Work based on an adjustable threshold level. When the sensor reading is above or inside the threshold, GATE will output 12V while !GATE will be 0V and vice versa.
  • Smoothing modes. Sensor readings can be chaotic when you might not want them to be so there are two smoothing modes. One simply averages readings to create slow rises and falls while the other acts like an envelope follower with adjustable decay.
  • Large LED strip display. Visualizes the sensor reading, threshold, smoothing mode and more.
  • USB MIDI standalone mode. The Sensory Coupler can work without modular +-12V power, getting power with the built in USB-C connector and sending and receiving MIDI notes and CC. In USB mode gate outputs work at 4V instead of 12V but CV out is disabled.

Pricing and Availability:

The Sensory Coupler is available to pre-order for $250 USD.

  1. That really is pretty slick. I saw something similar to the magnetic demonstration in a “Best New Instruments” video from some music conference, but this takes it to other levels.
