Joseph Malloch, Stephen Sinclair, Avrum Hollinger and Marcelo M. WanderleyThis chapter discusses some principles of digital musical instrument design in the context of different goals and constraints. It shows, through several examples, that a variety of conditions can motivate design choices for sensor interface and mapping, such as robustness and reliability, environmental constraints on sensor technology, or the desire for haptic feedback. Details of specific hardware and software choices for some DMI designs are discussed in this context.
