See it in action


When you plug in the emonica, the pressure sensor will be calibrated to the environment. So, don't blow into the emonica, when you start up.

Slider calibration
Since there are no reference points for the slider, the slider must be moved right and left once. A little animation shows the whole thing. After this, the emonika is ready for use.

Button assignment & menu structure

Here you see an image of the buttons. Each button can be assign to a special function (see menu structure).

Menu structure

When you start the emonica you are on the main screen, where you can see the current preset, current  note and the blow in/out level of the pressure sensor.

If you press all six buttons for more than three seconds, you get into the setting mode.

At the first , you can select the preset. There are eight presets, but the maxium number is changeable in the source code. Use Buttons 4 and 5 for selecting the current preset.

If you now use the buttons 1 and 2 you can navigate through the parameters for the selected preset.
