You can download patch CHARLIE from the GripBeats® website here.
Like patch BRAVO, patch CHARLIE has up to 8 different motion static gestures (hand position), each one performing their own unique Chords (Mode 1.). In addition, patch CHARLIE allows the user to switch to Arpeggiate (Mode 2.) by performing a sudden downwards acceleration. Try it now on your GripBeats© device!
ABOUT PATCH CHARLIE
This patch will allow you to experiment with up to 8 different static motion gestures, each one triggering a different chord. The chord will sound for as long as the hand is held in each specific position correctly (so you can learn how to accurately find and hold these gestures!). The same effect applies to Arpeggiate mode.
This patch calibrates your hand automatically upon turn on (so make sure your hand is in the correct calibration position before turning on your device).
Like patch BRAVO, patch CHARLIE allows you to recalibrate without having to restart your device. You may do so by pressing down and holding the power button for two vibrations (called pulses) and then releasing it. After 2-3 seconds, you'll feel a double pulse - this means your device has recalibrated.
Patch CHARLIE now allows the user to turn off their GripBeats© device by holding the button for 4 pulsations. If not, auto turn off now occurs after 3 minutes of inactivity.
You'll see the list of chords which should perform with which gestures below:
STEP 1 - SETUP

TURN ON your GripBeats© device.
CALIBRATE your GripBeats© device (keep your arm steady until led turns red).
