Optical Drum Pad- Preliminary

In stock

Single optical drum pad

For the 905 interfaces

All plastic construction


Current Designs' fMRI drum pad for use in the human brain mapping project. It is non-magnetic, non-electronic, and entirely made out of plastic, so will not add noise to the images or raise safety concerns in the MR/MEG room or similarly demanding environments. The fiber optic drum pad with the FIU-905 sends MIDI over USB, similar to a standard drum pad. It supports the velocity signal so harder taps produce louder sounds.


  • Handheld for the FIU-905 interfaces
  • 5 in x 5 in x 1.5 in (13 cm x 13 cm x 3.5 cm)
  • 10 ft (3 m) long fiber pigtailed connector

What Else Is Needed

This handheld response device needs an electronic interface to function -- that converts the optical signals to standard computer interfacing signals. In most cases you will also need a long optical fiber extension bundle to allow this device to be used at a distance from the interface unit. Examples of the interface and bundle are shown below in the Related Products section.

This item contains no metal, nothing electronic, and nothing magnetic. It can be used safely in the magnet room.
