Snap-on panel for Arduino based instruments

dcuartiellesMarch 9th, 2009

Last week I hosted a workshop at Arteleku in San Sebastian, Spain. We spent two days building small Arduino based music instruments using the Smapler v2 shield. I couldn’t resist the temptation of making a laser-cut design that I had in my head for some time … a snap-on board where to tidy up the Arduino board, the wires, the headphone connector and even an old computer keyboard.

The workshop -titled 16KB OF SOUND– focused in the idea of creating music instruments taking advantage of generative sound related techniques. If you are interested in the code developed during that workshop, visit this link. Just as a  teaser, the following video shows the simple tremolo example, on how to make a CASIO PT100-like tremolo keyboard out of an old PS2 computer keyboard.
