soundmachines LP1 lightplane
3 Dimensional Capacitive Control Surface
The LP1 lightplane is a capacitive surface that generates three-dimensional CVs plus a GATE signal along with finger movements, and "pressure" of your finger on its surface. It can also record those movements and loop them. It has different modes of working depending on the settings of the MODE button and the jumpers positions on the back of the module. The module can be mounted both ways. Soundmachines thought that in a 3U skiff it could be good to have the jacks on the top side and the contrary in a standard vertical mounted modular case. It's up to you! They've provided a jumper to be sure that when your finger goes 'up' and 'right', the voltages rise!
In XY high resolution mode you can record up to 4.5 seconds of 'movements' on the surface, including GATE output with a resolution of 15msec. The result is a nice and smooth variation in the output. In XYZ record mode the sampling time doubles but you actually record also the pressure axis (z).
The module can be setup to generate either 5V or 10V output voltage, by means of jumpers setting.
