Derek writes in about his quick and dirty how-to on making ribbon controllers from S-VHS tape – “While often used in electronic music, you can use a ribbon controller wherever you’d use a potentiometer, with the caveat (at least with this design, which has no sample and hold) that you have to keep pressing down. I’ve used this design to control display brightnesses and motor speeds, as well as hooking it up to an ADC & microcontroller to send MIDI CC info.” Link.
