Use Wiretap to Record Xbox Games While Using Your Headset

Posted by Jarrod Whaley on

Our products are versatile—in fact they can be used in so many ways, it's hard for us to list them all in a quick product listing. To that end, we'll be posting a series of short articles like this one, which demonstrate use cases which may not necessarily be apparent at first glance. Our Wiretap splitter might be the most broadly useful product we make. Not just for recording phone calls, the Wiretap can be used in any situation where it might be useful to split an audio signal and retain the use of the microphone on one of the...

Working Hard on the New Backbeater App

Posted by James Flynn on

The new Backbeater app is almost done, we're just tweaking the all-new strike detection algorithm so we can have a great user experience for every kind of drummer. Turns out the variation in sensor signal level, mounting techniques, and how hard different drummers hit their drums means we have to cover a wide range of sensitivities. The x-axis in the chart below is the sensitivity value in the app, the y-axis is the energy of the strike that will trigger a strike event. We've given you plenty of resolution at high sensitivity for soft hits, so you can get really...

Introducing Luxi For All!

Posted by Jarrod Whaley on

Luxi For All works with Android phones, iPhones, iPods, iPads–even devices with cases! Back Luxi For All on Kickstarter today! We launched Luxi on Kickstarter last year with one simple goal: that of bringing professional light metering to almost anyone. Before Luxi, light metering required expensive dedicated hardware, a fact which unfortunately left a lot of amateur and newly professional photographers out in the cold. We saw that today’s smartphone hardware could be used to perform all of the difficult number-crunching–all that was needed was a small, inexpensive piece of hardware that could send the right sorts of input to...
