The way to connect the sensor to computer's audio input

 

 

 

Sound preferences and input level setings

Input level in the theremin00 patch

Carrier frequency should be about 4000 (3500 - 4500)


Patch view after DSP on, prior to the "set zero" (push space)

 

Patch view just after "set zero" (push space)

 

Patch view during correct sensor operetion

 

ARDUINO CONNECTION

The sensor should be powered with external power supply min +7, max + 10 v
