The Eobody converts analog sensors into MIDI data, allowing a new level of interaction between your body and your computer. This small and rugged unit features 16 analog inputs with 10 bits of resolution, three assignable potentiometers, and four assignable switches. The unit is fully programmable via MIDI system exclusive and the included Eobody editor. Settings for each input include scaling, resolution, zoom, offset, and MIDI message type. A variety of sensors and switches are also available, including pressure, distance, light, temperature, and movement. From virtual instruments to installations, the Eobody gives a new dimension to live performance.
The Eobody package includes:
* Eobody hardware box with 16 inputs, four assignable switches and three assignable potentiometers to trigger events
* 15-pin pigtail D-sub cable for connecting sensors
* 9v power supply
* CD with Max patches, PDF manual, Eobody editor software
Sensors are available separately. See below for more detailed information on eowave sensors we offer. Eobody will work with sensors from other vendors.
About the Editor - Eobody is delivered with a free editor. The main editor window enables to request and dump information from/to Eobody to the computer. The the Knobs & Switches window will help configuring the parameters from the 3 free assignable potentiometers & 4 free assignable switches from Eobody, whilst with the Inputs 1-8 & Inputs 9-16 Windows, parameters per input such as status, resolution, zoom & offset, MIDI message types, channel, gate, subsampling or note on/off can be set. Then, you may test your configuration with the Input Monitor from the Main Editor Window where the activity of each inputs is represented by a bargraph which should react to the activation of the sensor you are using. Once you're done setting up the Eobody, you don't need your computer anymore. Eobody will keep the configuration you create in its non-volatile memory.
Eowave's Sensors - There are a large variety of sensors available. We currently sell an introductory set of five sensors (five different kinds) as well as a few different individual sensors.
Computer with MIDI interface. Eobody editor software compatible with Mac OS X and Windows XP.
