No: there is no circuit in the set up, just ON/OFF switches...:-) The CV and Gates originate from the analog Synth -and after manipulation (switching) by the performer - are going back to the analog synth for further processing..
Obviously, these simple performance gloves should not be compared to some M.I.D.I Data Gloves, often hooked to sophisticated DSP engines: these kind of
gloves can control and treat any digital data in real time. >yes, but at least you are giving the operator some sort of control away >from the synth- neat IDea for performances !!

These are just my weird ideas for new controllers: we, analog heads, need them badly.:-) I heard about the Nintendo Power glove : maybe it could be used for analog
control. What are the specs and how does it work? >I don' know what the specs are, it basically has resistive pads in the >fingers that change resistance when the glove is flexed. >I don't have the glove any more, but they are available on the net here and >there.
