Topic: Piezoelectric sensors into the line inputs of Fireface UFX+ ?
While trying to find an affordable way to integrate electronic drums in my setup I found an UK company (called Audiofront) that makes a VST plugin (called DSP Trigger) that translates audio to MIDI notes and can do that in real time (!) using piezoelectric sensors connected to the line input of audio interfaces. These piezoelectric sensors are the same ones found in electronic drum pads from Roland, Yamaha, etc. However, my idea is to make my own custom pads with these piezoelectric sensors.
I am a bit worried about possible implications to the UFX+ converters from the piezoelectric signal, peak voltage and di/dt from the transducer and I will not connect these sensors to my UFX+ without asking here first if this is an acceptable use of the interface.
A litle background: Piezoelectric, or simply piezo, are sensors that work as small "microphones" but create an electric field from the deformation of a material (crystal, ceramic, and others), converting vibration (from a drum stick) to a voltage (electric field).
Therefore, please, is it safe to connect these "piezo" to my UFX+ interface a/d converter's via the line inputs to be processed by this VST plugin?
Thanks a lot in advance. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Here are the links to the plugin manufacturer and to the said piezo:
