Before sensible synthesis can occur each accelerometer Drancel must by calibrated, or "homed". This calibration value is then applied as an offset to condition the Drancel.

The homing process is a crucial principle in Drancing, as it defines a point of "silence and darkness" for the "drancing" performer, and promotes body awareness. The "homing" can take place at any accelerometer orientation (as long as the accelerometers are held still for the brief period of calibration, typically 1 second).

The signals are also scaled linearly, and then clipped to within -1..1 range.


In some older versions of DranceWare I found some benefit in non-linear scalings.
