CNMAT PC-2410: a passive pad for tactile transducer workflows

Here at CNMAT we often work with tactile transducers in large stage settings and this presents a number of technical challenges.  Composers tend to favor inexpensive, off-the-shelf consumer amplifiers and transducer/exciters that can be difficult to interface with professional audio equipment without distortion or damage.  The core issue here is that the consumer level amplifier typically expects a -10 dBV (0.316 volt RMS) signal while most professional equipment is capable of handling much higher signal voltages--typically up to +24 dBu (12.28 volts RMS).  When transducers are deployed in
