Wearables: Revamp the vibrations (shorter duration)#19

the stronger vibrations are also way too long: they should remain strong, but please make them as short as possible! this will definitely improve keeping the tempo.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion! We know for a metronome you want to have vibrations that are as sharp as possible. Unfortunately this is a technical limitation. If you want to generate a stronger vibration, you need to turn the vibration motor a bit longer. We already use a haptic driver to accelerate and break the motor to create the maximum amount of sharpness per vibration strength generated. With todays technology there’s unfortunately a tradeoff of vibration strength & vibration duration! So you’ll have to find the right balance between the two that works for you

Thanks OP, I fully agree.
I assume you’re talking about the Core, though?
For the Pulse, I can tweak length and strength of a vibration independently.

From the top of my head:

  • short/medium/long
  • weak/medium/strong

All combinations are possible, so 3x3=9 different combos.
This is great for tweaking the feel of the main beat and subdivisions.

However, the Core doesn’t have this level tweakability: the stronger a vibration, the longer it is!
Florian, are you saying this a hardware limitation of the Core, which the Pulse does not have…?

Hey, the Core and the Pulse use the same vibration motor and haptic driver so their capabilities in that regard are identical. Between the Pulse and the Core, the only thing we changed is the interface in the app, but you are assigning the same vibrations. We simplified the UI in the Core and removed some options that felt identical and provided no value. Sorry for the confusion our UI change caused - we felt it would be more straight forward to line up the different options from weak to powerful. For each vibration strength level we always picked the shortest/most distinct vibration option

Merged Accent too long#125
8 months ago

From another thread: An accent (for example the first beat of bar) needs to be really short. Now the accented best is extremely broad. No timing whatsoever. Practically an upbeat is blurred with downbeat. (It takes two for tango, of course, but how about tea for two?)

This is really satisfacrory for rehearsing free pulsative music.

To be accurate the pulses and accents needs to be much shorter. Way shorter. And with more impact.
