I added a basic breath sensor to the pastry saxophone. It kinda works! The response of the breath sensor is quite slow - I think I need to use something stretchier than a nitrile glove. It doesn't feel sensitive enough to do staccato notes or anything yet.
I didn't get dynamics working with the USB MIDI yet, but on/off breath control works well
The breath sensor works like this guy's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es92GqYBge0
The black tape all over it is to block out light - I found it was making a big difference to the readings.
@normandc Yeah it is! I did change the default background but for whatever reason it wasn't working for me, so I changed it back.
The 14 year old version of the CAD software we used up to last October had a light blue background by default. The newer version has an almost white one. I've gotten used to it, and switched FreeCAD to a similar background. I dislike dark themes and backgrounds.
- Tooted on Mastodon's default dark UI 😉
@normandc On my work Solidworks I go for a mid grey background, and a macro that toggles it to white for taking screenshots. Mid grey didn't work so well in FreeCAD because it's too close to the default part colour!
