Questions / Need immediate with battery case!!
« Last post by stevesciulli on April 12, 2018, 12:57:12 PM »
Please Help as I have shows coming up for late April.
The thin wires that connect the battery holder onto the circuit board has broken. Also it appears that one of the wires melted!!!
Can I purchase a new battery holder with the circuit board pin pre-soldered?
I'm in the process of rehearsal for upcoming shows and need advice fast.

Questions / Educational Material
« Last post by martinscaiff on April 11, 2018, 07:57:09 AM »
Hi everyone,

I will be using my Sprout as part of a range of educational activities I run. I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some good introductory material that introduces how the sprout works, what biodata is and how the plants generate it and possible influencing factors. Suggestions of anything else anybody thinks would be useful would also be most welcome.

all best wishes

I can not assist here as i use Android where everything is working fine. And i tried MIDI-Sprout on three different Android devices/OS versions.The described issue leaves enough room for wild speculations such,...

a) Iphone itself has something
b) there is a bug with a specific iOS version, which needs to be solved on the developer's side
c) or the iConnectMIDI1 fails at some point & needs to be replaced

MIDI-Sprout should be okey than lights are detected which proves activity.

Much Love

Yes I seem to have ta similar same issue. I connect to the Sprout using the white midi 'In' cable and a signal is there (lights on both sprout and iphone) but the app says ;No midi sprout signal detected'. I also cannot test the app with my finger.


I thank you for allowing us to participate on that beautiful event, to witness the plant's perspective expressed through it's music, which makes collecting Plants music so unique, as many unexpected things can happen during a season. :)

Much Love

the white cable I am referring to is marked IN- the MIDI lights up when turned on however the iPhone app still says there is no detection.  I should be able to touch the nodes with my fingers to test and this is not the case...

Make sure you are using the MIDI 'Input' plug attached to the Sprout, there are two MIDI cables on the iOS/MIDI device.  You likely have the wrong plug attached to the Sprout
Questions / Re: Extending biofeedback electrodes?

Yes, dry soil doesn't conduct electricity very well (unless wet). 

The biodata sensor uses two electrodes which measure electrical conductivity between the trodes.

Essentially, your experiment shouldn't work if the user is holding a glass jar, that glass will insulate and prevent the user from being measured.   

Now ... there are many situations where strange electrode configurations will produce 'output' (like put one trode on one person, the other trode on another person, and then move really close together without touching).

Sometimes moisture/humidity in the air is enough to allow a small flow of current... but the best way to use the tool is to have a good solid connection with the organic system which is being studied.
