Yes, I agree. The design I'm thinking of is heavily based on his ideas.
I've looked at his design, and it looks way ahead of what I managed to
do with my first drum pad prototype.
The only thing I found problematic in his design wasn't to do with
usability but the expense (and also physical bulk) of having to use a
high end audio interface as part of the electronics. This put me off
building one myself, so I am thinking of having a go at a very similar
design but using a resistive rather than capacitive pressure sensing
technique. I.e. basically the same design but using a sheet of carbon or
metal loaded conductive rubber and measuring the resistance changes when
you scan through the matrix. If this works, it will hopefully produce
similar results but with much simpler electronics and firmware.
