The Pulse Controller is a new device which has been created and developed by musician Stephan Vankov, that has been designed to transform any flat surface in to an instrument.
Once attached to a surface the Pulse software then reads impulses it hears when the surface is hit to tapped. Enabling you to transform your table in to a drum set or piano.Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Vankov’s idea behind Pulse Controller was born out of the belief that computer-based musicians and performers should not feel restricted to a grid of small 1×1″ pads or a keyboard to create music and sounds.
“Pulse Surface Controller liberates computer-based musicians from conventional input devices of predetermined form factor and layout, allowing the user to turn a surface of various size, orientation and material into an expressive, flexible, reconfigurable MIDI controller.”
The Pulse Surface Midi Controller is available to purchase for $60. More information is available on the great device over at the Pulse Surface Controller website. Currently the Pulse system supports Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7, while a M4L version is available for Windows and Ableton Live users on request.
