Wooden TouchPads

T.K. Broderick

The Wooden.TouchPads are wooden drums with added melodic and rhythmic functionality with the use of gated sine waves and noise.



The Wooden TouchPad is both an acoustic instrument and an audio controller. Drum pads and trackpads are a great way to access a huge collection of sounds and trigger various media elements with a single tactile interface, but they themselves don’t contribute sound when played. This interface will produce the acoustic sounds of a wooden drum that are heard synchronously with it’s extended melodic functionality.
