Musicians are always searching for new ways of creating and modifying sound. The development of new technologies and their accessibility have propelled and enabled use of sensors in sound design. However, the great variety of different sensors and lack of practical interfaces often requires a grasp on advanced technological knowledge or compels the artists to buy expensive specialised equipment; both requirements can hinder the creative process.
We decided to find solutions to this problem which would allow artists to use a great number of different sensors in an easy and intuitive way in order to modify sound. OctoSens is a sensor interface and a synthesiser with possibility to connect various sensors to control various parameters on its internal audio engine or to process sensor data and send it to other instruments/equipment. It can send MIDI, CV and GATE signals. It can be used as a standalone or eurorack version.
