On my Tyros3 I miss a manual tremolo control (bellow shakes), which I cherished as an accordion player. Its foot controller for volume consist of just a 10K Pot.

1) Thus, I was thinking of replacing the Pot with a LDR and a LED or lamp.
My idea is to attach this controller onto my right hand-top or wrist. Shaking my hand then moves the light source to and from the LDR to create the desired tremolo/ volume variations.
2) Ideally this controller should be small and wireless.

My question is: How to create such a controller?
I have got several LED-shaped LDR, which I could place into a little black tube together with a bright LED (which color is best?). Yet then, how to make the LDR or LED "shakeable"? I have got very fine/thin, flexible wire. Maybe I should glue it to the tip of a fine piece of rubber?? Maybe magnet and hall effect Sw would be better??
My head is spinning! Smile
The overall idea is vary useful, because it then could be applied to every Synth, cutting its robotic sounds and enriching its human touch & feel.
I am grateful for your suggestions...
