Ribbon controller, consisting of a resistive strip mounted to a piece of wood, connected via an interface housed in a black plastic box to a Moog Mother-32 synthesizer

The Analog Output Ribbon Controller is a resistive ribbon controller with a Nano-based interface. It outputs the position of the contact on the ribbon controller as a voltage between 0 and 5 V (two copies of this voltage are output), and a gate which is on or off depending on whether there is contact or not with the ribbon.

The controller itself was built along the lines of the one here:


Other resistive ribbons should also be usable.

The interface is based on my dac/ino lite circuit board. Power is provided by a 9 V battery; there is a toggle switch to turn power off and on.
