Design and realization of a motion-based controller for Bass guitar for LEDEN (Daniele Fabris). The device, mountable on the back head of the guitar between the tuning pegs senses the orientation and movement of the instrument and sends OSC data via WI-FI to the musician’s computer. The data is then interpreted by MAX/MSP and Ableton Live for audio processing and effects.

The controller is based on the Huzzah32 board and LSM9SD1 IMU sensor and works on Li-Po batteries, making it lightweight and easily installable in multiple configurations.
