Johnathan Tse’s Brainwave Controlled Drum Machine


View Paper | NYU Thesis Projects

Johnathan’s project was one of the most interesting I’ve ever worked on. We worked closely together to connect a portable EEG device to Max / Msp to control a drum machine with thoughts. The final results were crude because we were only using a $400 EEG, which was not as accurate as more expensive models. In fact most of the effort in this project involved creating filters to reduce the amount of nose.

At this moment the Link to the project paper does not work, but will shortly.
