Halloween "Theremin" Ghost

    Halloween Theremin Ghost

    I use Max to receive data from the arduino board and simply map the data from the sensor to the pitch of cycle~. The original data was quite 'noisy', giving the sound a grainy character, so I made a patch to reduce this, resulting in a much smoother glissando. Then there is just a little bit of delay to thicken the sound and make it a bit more ghost-like. The only other element in the patch is a 'gate' so the ghost stops singing when no-one is close to it.
