Title (EN) ELECTRONIC MUSICAL INSTRUMENT PERCUSSION SYSTEM ELECTROMAGNETIC SENSOR
(FR) CAPTEUR ÉLECTROMAGNÉTIQUE DE SYSTÈME DE PERSÉCUTION D'INSTRUMENT MUSICAL ÉLECTRONIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) This invention is relative to an apparatus of detection of the percussion in an electronic percussion instrument system based on a sensor put together according to the Farady-Neumann-Lentz (FNL) law of physics. It has been applied to an electronic drum, only as an example so not exclusively, that has one or more electronic control units to generate sounds, or rather, still as an example, in other electronic musical instruments played by hand or using objects such as a 'bongo' or the 'kettledrum'. This invention overcomes all currently existing technical limitations that derive from the common use of a detection system of percussion by means of the piezoelectric sensor and, more precisely, the signal peaks (so-called hot spots), and also the risk of breaking the piezoelectric sensor when the surface of the electronic musical instrument is struck exactly where the sensor is positioned, as well as the elimination of the detection of spurious signals coming from mechanical vibrations. THE INVENTION The new system of detection of the percussion in an electronic musical instrument (fig.5) will consist of an upper surface (1) that receives the percussion, covered also by a rubber layer (2), useful for giving a realistic rebound to the musician, to which the FNL sensor magnet (3) is placed in adherence. There will also be a lower surface (5) to which the FNL sensor bobbin (4) is applied and a shock absorber thickness (6) between the two surfaces that allows the two components of the FNL sensor to remain in suspension between them. These two components of the FNL sensor can be inverted on the two surfaces. The system described above allows a better and simpler manufacturing of the musical instrument because the FNL sensor is not fragile should it be struck exactly where it has been applied and, in the same way, avoids every signal peak and is insensitive to spurious signals coming from mechanical vibrations from parts of the musical instrument.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de détection de la percussion dans un système d'instrument de percussion électronique basé sur un capteur placé selon les lois de physique de Faraday-Neumann-Lentz (FNL). Il a été appliqué à un tambour électronique, uniquement en tant qu'exemple donc non exclusivement, qui a une ou plusieurs unités de commande électronique pour générer des sons, ou plutôt, encore en tant qu'exemple, dans d'autres instruments musicaux électroniques joués à la main ou à l'aide d'objets tels qu'un "bongo" ou la "timbale". La présente invention surmonte toutes les limitations techniques existantes actuellement qui sont issues de l'utilisation commune d'un système de détection de percussion au moyen du capteur piézoélectrique et, plus précisément, les pics de signal (que l'on appelle points chauds), et également le risque de rupture du capteur piézoélectrique lorsque la surface de l'instrument musical électronique est frappée exactement où le capteur est positionné, ainsi que l'élimination de la détection de faux signaux provenant de vibrations mécaniques. Le nouveau système de détection de la percussion dans un instrument musical électroniques (fig. 5) consistera en une surface (1) supérieure qui reçoit la percussion, recouverte également par une couche (2) de caoutchouc.
