Elastic Boundary Impactor

Use trigger pulses to hit a tethered ball – as its elastic snaps it back & forth, impacts with its square boundary are output as triggers/gates (1 for each wall + 1 for the center). The physics can be adjusted and modulated, which means that the ball can grow & shrink in mass while the boundary changes size and the elastic gets snappier or looser and the impact changes direction & velocity. A memory dial can store 8 sets of physics that you can deploy quickly with a turn of the knob. The ball’s distance from center, horizontal position, and vertical position can also be used to modulate other devices.

Use the Elastic Boundary Impactor to create organic rhythms and fills, generative sequences, complex modulations, and physics-based variation in your patches.
