As said in a post few days ago, I’m starting a project about toy musical instruments hacking with my friend Isaac Massot (www.isaacmassot.com). Today we’ve been testing a piezo sensor powered by Arduino as a trigger to detect when the elements of our cute drumkit are played. We’ve developed a simple Processing program that capures this data and draws the spectra graphics. It shows the kicks and the intensity value. Here you’ve got an example:
So that’s it! Step by step we are gonna bring this tiny drumkit into an amazing musical instrument 🙂 let’s keep working hard!
