2.4SINK allows wireless connections to our branded, high precision Movesense® motion sensors with low latency to create highly expressive and unique stage performances. Additionally 2.4SINK is compatible with Open Sound Control (OSC) and Bluetooth® MIDI to be compatible with a wide range of applications (e.g. Max, Pure Data, SuperCollider), sensors and maker technologies (e.g. Arduino). Built-in LFOs and 16 multimode outputs cover all kinds of control signals.
2.4SINK was successfully funded on Kickstarter in June 2019.

2.4SINK IN DETAIL:
Movesense® sensors with customized firmware
→ LOW LATENCY
→ 3 AXIS
Our branded Movesense® sensors are powered by our customized firmware adapted for musical applications (e.g. low latency). It includes 9 Degrees-Of-Freedom sensor fusion generating roll, pitch and yaw angles from gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer. To avoid quantization errors a custom Bluetooth® LE transmission protocol supporting floating point numbers is used. Mapping and scaling of sensor values can be done in the web app CV configuration section. Up to seven sensors can be used simultaneously.
OPEN SOUND CONTROL
2.4SINK is compatible with Open Sound Control (OSC) over Wi-Fi. All internal functions can be controlled from any OSC client. For example, with Max for Live (Ableton Live) you can easily control your Eurorack and analog synths wirelessly without the need for an expensive DC-coupled interface! Or use mobile applications such as Lemur for multi-touch control of your Rack.
BLUETOOTH® LE MIDI
2.4SINK can be controlled via wireless MIDI controllers, which are compatible to Bluetooth® LE MIDI. Control Change (CC) mappings can be set in the web app. Note On/Off messages have fixed mappings starting from C on output A1.
16x 12 BIT MULTIMODE OUTPUTS
→ UNIPOLAR, BIPOLAR, GATE/TRIGGER
2.4SINK offers 16 x 12 bit outputs with bicolor LEDs where each can be configured in unipolar mode (0V to +10V), bipolar mode (-5V to +5V) or gate/trigger mode (0V to +5V) without losing sampling depth. This is useful to make use of a wide range of sensor data. For example, for motion controlled envelopes, unipolar mode is recommended. For LFO style signals, bipolar mode is recommended. To trigger drums or external envelope generators, gate/trigger mode is recommended. The outputs can be easily configured via the built-in web app under CV configuration section.
Depending on the output mode, the LFOs are unipolar or bipolar except the clock LFO which is always between 0V and +5V. If an output is used as a LFO, the incoming value corresponds to the frequency. For Bluetooth devices, the output function can be set in the web app. For OSC, the output functions are encoded in the address path and can be changed during runtime.
BUILT-IN WEB APP
The built-in web app gives users total and easy control about the module. Wi-Fi can be configured in Access Point or Client mode. Supported Bluetooth® LE devices (i.e. our branded Movesense® sensors or Bluetooth® LE MIDI compatible devices) are shown and can be coupled under Bluetooth® LE configuration section with a single click. Afterwards, the specific sensor values can be mapped and scaled in the CV configuration section for each output. The settings are persisted in the internal flash memory.
Furthermore, firmware updates including bug fixes and new features can be uploaded and applied in the web app via Wi-Fi. The firmware binaries will be published on our website in the future
COMPATIBLE WITH HOLON.IST
The Holon.ist iOS app uses environmental information and integrated iPhone / Apple Watch sensors to control music. With this app you can create your own instruments and musical rules for places, sports, games, or anything involving movement and micromovements, even the beat of your own heart by using the app in combination with an Apple Watch.
