Each channel of each Drancel can drive a Variable Frequency Oscillator (VFO) - in this case a simple sine oscillator - with the option of locking onto discrete MIDI note frequencies, as well as a frequency scaling, a frequency offset, and an output gain.

Variable Frequency Oscillators (VFOs) are grouped in a triad corresponding to the (X,Y,Z) accelerometer channels of a Drancel.

This is the most immediately powerful Drancing mode as far as aural biofeedback is concerned, and it promotes proprioception. It sounds quite sci-fi like and eerie, and reminds one of the Theremin, except there are (in the mode shown here) 3 independent frequencies, which can be made "rub" together to create beat frequencies.
