My mod to an Eowave ribbon controller.

The main strength here is giving independent expression to volume/filter similarly to how an Ondes Martinot does it, but putting that control in the same hand that controls pitch.

This would be great on an Ondes Martinot and I plan to do something similar to a ring controller in time.

The Eowave has pressure on the ribbon, but the mod here makes it much easier to have dynamics be consistent across phrases of many notes. When a violinist plays a new note in a phrase, the bow is usually just consistent and not re-triggering. Same for breath of a wind instrument. This has the same effect. This principle is part of why a Martenot is so musical.

A small pressure sensor would do this too and be easier to set up likely. A sensor on the ring of a Martenot, or between thumb and the index or (as Dana Countryman suggested) the 3rd finger would be great.

This would free up the left hand for sound modulation, knob turning, chords on another keyboard, hitchhiking etc.

Here's the video:
