8-bit Game of Thrones remix played on a Nintendo keytar made with Raspberry Pi! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Raspberrypi.org posted this sweet video from Theremin Hero of his Raspberry Pi-based keytar playing the Game of Thrones theme song. It’s like all of our favorite things rolled into one awesome video!

Theremin Hero has built the keytar of our dreams. He says a build diary is coming soon – from what we can make out there’s a degree of sophistication in there, with the Guitar Hero controller providing octave up/down, slide and modulation input; we’re dying to find out what that Famicom controller is doing.

From the Theremin Hero site:

Full explanation of the NESKeytar construction and it’s various features coming soon…

…Most of the buttons are functional and can be remapped to different functions, as can the whammy bar. It also has an onboard arpeggio and drum sequencer.

The sound comes from the original RP2A03 chip in the NES, giving it that classic 8-bit sound. All of the available sound channels are utilised.

The software runs on a raspberry pi and is written in a language called Pure Data (pd). There are various modes including a midi controller mode as well as a standalone mode, which allows the whole instrument to be used with a battery pack.

Components:

  • NES
  • Guitar Hero Controller
  • Famicom Controller
  • NES controller
  • Toy Keyboard
  • 3 Mini Arduinos
  • Raspberry Pi
  • MaxM LEDs
  • Midi IN/OUT connections
  • MidiNES / Chip Maestro
