UFO stands for Ultrasonic Frequency cOntroller.

  • Five ultrasonic sensors – that is, distance sensors based on ultrasonic echo location (a typical range-finding sensor)
  • Send MIDI notes, using gestures to send notes with controller data. (This is a bit like the Theremin arrangement – and like any touch-less arrangement lacks tangible feedback – but with more axes of data. And unlike the Theremin, it’s tuned to scaled octaves so you send fixed notes, as on a piano.)
  • Send controller data.
  • LEDs for feedback on modes.
  • MIDI out. USB class compliance (for USB MIDI).
  • Built around Arduino Mega 2560

Planned for the future:

Presets that you can store and recall
Sustain pedal support
MIDI IN for arpeggio clock sync
Arpeggiator patterns
LFO CC curves
Quick switching of presets by sending MIDI commands to the device
