  • Publication number: 20220277713
    Abstract: A sound production control apparatus has a position detector that detects, in accordance with a playing operation of a musical instrument, a position of a key displaceable within a movement range from a start position to an end position. The movement range includes a sounding range including a sounding position and a setting range that is closer to the start position than the sounding range. The apparatus causes a played sound associated with the key to be produced upon the detected position of the key reaching the sounding position, while controlling a characteristic of the played sound depending on a displacement characteristic of the key within the setting range before the key is positioned in the sounding range.

  • Patent number: 10910967
    Abstract: A motor driver device supplies drive voltages to three phase coils of a stator in a brushless DC motor based on a detection result of a position of a rotor in a sensorless manner. In a position detection section, two phase coils are set as a target coil pair and a remaining one phase coil is set as a non-target coil, and with respect to all combinations of target coil pairs, a first process of applying a pulse voltage from a first direction to the target coil pair and a second process of applying a pulse voltage from a second direction opposite to the first direction to the target coil pair are executed. In the first and second processes, power supply to the non-target coil is stopped. The position of the rotor is detected based on voltages generated in the non-target coil in each first process and each second process.
