Mutable Instruments community, hello from l’australie
I’m not very well versed in electronics. ( tinkered a bit circuit bending and stumbled my way through a few kit builds where I only half understood what did what and why… if that. )
-though Id like to learn more…
Anyways, que to the present and I’m helping to put together a gallery installation. One that will feature among other things a wall of numerous old TV’s. -all sizes with various video feedback loops live streams and bent / rewired text generators etc…
to add more interactivity I’m thinking of controlling a kaoss entranced via midi using the midi pal’s [ CNTRLR ] app.
I’d like to use a breakout cable like elthorno mentions… and a collection of pots and sensors around the place.
specifically these ones.
I’m a little unsure exactly which points to wire to and if it’s ok to use any pot / touchstrip / flex sensor as long as it’s wired as a voltage divider and attached to the 3.3 out on the board and to the ground.
O O -IN / OUT
] [ -3.3v GND
<>  ()
>analouge 1…8, 0… 3.3v GND 3.3v
< 3.5 v > [ 0 to 3.5v in x 8 ]
Do I simply wire pots in series connecting the left point to the 3.3v out -the centre to one of the 8 ( or 7 ? ) points along the lower edge -and the right to ground. ( last on the lower edge ? )
is the square one 3.3 out ?
are the last two ground ? ( or last one ? )
why are they grouped as a pair with brackets ( like the 7 before ) ?
what are the in / out / ground points on the side…?
should I ignore these or use them ( if so how ? ) ?
a diagram would be really helpful. or a photo… -here’s hoping : ] any help at all appreciated.
Just don’t want to fry the thing as its so darn useful. -yet I gather thats unlikely while using 3.3v out from the midi-pal’s board.
