The [finger] Tippler
Eight contact microphones, eight channels of discrete audio, and eight models of resonance: Now in its third version, a chance to make a few prototypes of a finger percussion instrument based on models of resonance and contact microphones.
Slideshow shows three iterative prototypes, all designed in Rhino3D and cut with a lasercutter out of masonite and plexi, including the last version demonstrated in the video example. The video example uses aLib-M4L, a package of Max for Live modules to be released in early 2011.
Thanks to Drew Anderson for help with assembly and still documentation, thanks to Luke Anderson for video documentation help.
