First look at the Sabre clarinet sensor
In October, we were lucky to meet with clarinetist and inventor Matthias Müller. He has worked for years on designing and performing with an augmented bass clarinet. Recently, he declined a portable version of the sensor system for any clarinet: the SABRE Multi Sensor. It includes an air-pressure sensor, a 3D accelerometer, two buttons accessible from the left hand, two buttons accessible from the right thumb.
I love how they designed the buttons for the right thumb. You can change the orientation as you wish.
Easy to connect to Max
The sensors transmit data through Bluetooth. We had things working quite easily when tested on a Mac. I immediately tried to build an interactive delay in Max. It worked flawlessly: the sensors send OSC data.
Mauricio plans on using the sensor for one of his main projects this year. I'll let you know his new music will be available.
