The first attachable MIDI controller is finally finished!! It can be attached to tabla and control three volume faders, and effect parameters. The FSRs are poor quality and do not give the best feedback but at least it demonstrates the concept. Brain Jr. Config a software that is used to determine what the sensors, which is basically a form of calibration.
This controller is surprisingly stable while attached to the tabla and proves that it is possible to ergonomically integrate a MIDI controller with a tabla.
