Percussa AudioCube Tip To Prevent Cubes from Sliding

markmosher_theremin_percussa_audiocube

If you’ve seen pictures or videos of my live rig in use you’ll know that I when I use Percussa AudioCubes, I tend to not only use them on a table surface, but I also place them on top of other instruments like the Theremin or other keyboards.Working on a new improvisational piece with AudioCubes, Ableton Live, Waldorf Blofeld, and Theremin

When I first started doing this I had a few inadvertent cube drops. This was more true with cubes that were connected to USB as this added a directional pull on to the cube. So for the way I perform I wanted to increase the friction coefficient of the bottom face of the cube.

My simple solution after a little experimentation was to get some rubberized shelf liner, then cut it to be a bit smaller than the dimensions of the cube face and then use double-sided tape to secure the material to the cube.

This simple solution keeps the cubes where I want them, but also allows me to slide them around on a table – they are just a little more “sticky” than designed.
