First of all, sorry if you read this twice, but after posting inn the Frecnh section, I thought it may be more appropriated here. So here I am.
I'm working on a project for percussions augmented with eletronic sounds. In order for the peformer to control some musical parameters, I'd like to attach some accelerometers to the drum sticks. Basically I want him to be able to control speed of some loops, tempo modulations, (de-)synchronisation with the electronic part for example, and maybe use the data from the accelerometer to excite some resonators or such (that is, I'm not trying to detect the shots on the drum).
I'm not worried that much about the software part - at least, not yet ;-) - but I have little experience with the hardware part. I came across some models of accelerometers in some articles, tutorials, etc (here and there for example, but I have little idea about the specificities of the sensors and about which one should I use over another. Did someone use some accelerometers in such a situation ? Or could someone give me informations about the specificities to care of ?
Thanks in advance for any information.
