How can i calibrate the sensor to mount it vertically on the body?

Hi Chnortz,

You probably mean to set an offset (or rather null position) for a specific axis. 
This is currently not available (for roll and pitch axis the middle position of a sensor is always the horizontal line. For yaw (direction) axis the middle position is indicated by the white bar on the sensor from the time the sensor connects to 2.4SINK). 
However, we have planned to implement this in the future.

Thanks for the hint. But how would you attach the Sensor to the belt, to get out a metronom-like signal, as i'm shaking my ass to the music? I want to play live with a drummer, which should be free in timing, but i want to get my get my clock locked tho my hips. Any ideas? It would definitely help, if i could patch the sensor directly to the belt, without a fancy L-Mount with the sensor on 😉

You can attach the sensor to your belt with a clip of us and use an acceleration axis instead of a tilt angle (i.e. roll, pitch, yaw). The acceleration axes are suitable to measure activity (e.g. when you are jumping) whereas the tilt angle axes are suitable to measure position. You can change the mapping in the web app. Set a sensor input of an output to a desired acceleration axis (e.g. AccelY corresponds to accelerations along the vector indicated by the white bar on the sensor). See here for a good illustration.

Think about the gravitation. If you can't reset the position, the y-axis feels the gravitation, so you don't get a proper signal. On the one side, you will battle against the gravitation, on the other side, you have an always on signal and you have to invert and scale it, to get a gate. I will try it with a 90° mount. without, the other axes are also not available.

You can change the threshold for a trigger with the scale setting in the web app to compensate the gravity.
