Block types

Blocks are the individual elements of haptic patterns. There are three different types of blocks:


The Vibration block produces a vibration that can range from a sharp buzz to a deep rumble.


The Pulse block represents a short, but strong impulse like in a mouse click or when pressing a mechanical button.

Actuators of type Voice coil are the most suitable to realize Pulses. On LRAs, the achievable amplitude is often limited to very low values, and on ERMs, Pulses can feel like vibrations.


The Pause block corresponds to no movement of the haptic actuator. Just like rests in music, they might seem inconspicuous, but can add great value!
