I made these MIDI controllers using Teensy 2.0 Arduino modules. They are my versions of traditional world instruments using Kontakt 5:

Very nice collection of electronic performance controllers--wildly creative in the most positive sense!!! Do you share the schematics, sketches, and sensor construction techniques (esp. for the "strings," mouth control, and ribbon) anywhere? Thanks for sharing; I enjoyed the video demonstration (part 1, so far).

Very cool. I would have never thought to try any of these, but you aroused my curiosity.

I used a touch sensor like all other keys. Placing the mouth on the large metal cup (mouthpiece) which acts as a capacitance sensor triggers the Didge instrument sequence in Kontakt just like pressing a key on a MIDI keyboard.

Wow! What a collection. I don't mind Teensy and programming - I mean craftmanship. Mechanics of this instruments is superb.

ah ok, so it's not controlled by air movement and Kontakt is doing most of the work. It looks great and I love the additional light show
but I do hope its battery powered and completely isolated from any mains powered devices. Wink

All my MIDI controller instruments use USB MIDI interface to the PC. So they are tethered and not battery powered.
