sea board

Hi Randy,

First of all thank you very much for sharing your knowledge. I was wondering if you have an idea on how the sea board is working (you know the rubber synth controller)? Do you think it is similar to the soundplane? I am trying to make something like this and was wondering if the soundplane could be a good start?

I do know the Sea board, but I have absolutely no idea what kind of sensors are inside. There are a lot of sensor options to look at. Many devices use FSRs, either custom or off the shelf. The big advantage of the Soundplane sensor is that since we make it ourselves, I can tune the feel to be exactly what we want by varying the elastic layer in thickness and shape.
