NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit OONTZ Open-Source Grid Controller Kit – 8×8 White LEDs

NewImage

Build and customize your very own open-source button grid controller based on the Adafruit Trellis with the OONTZ kit! Designed by PaintYourDragon, this DIY kit comes with delicious translucent button pads, controller pads, diffused white LEDS and a custom laser cut enclosure. The result is a sturdy and elegant but also super-hackable music or video (or something else???) controller device

We designed this kit for ease of use and ultimate flexibility. All you need is an Arduino Leonardo, basic soldering tools and an afternoon. Once assembled and programmed with the Arduino IDE, this box turns into a USB MIDI device that works with any computer and has 64 buttons with controllable LEDs. Our default example program sends a MIDI Note On and Off message for each button press but with a little programming ingenuity you can send and receive any kind of MIDI command. Since its USB MIDI it can work instantly with just about all synth software. Don’t like MIDI? The Leonardo can also emulate a USB keyboard or plain old USB serial.

Since it’s Arduino-powered, adding more stuff like accelerometers, potentiometers, rotary encoders, etc. is straight-forward and uses existing libraries available on the Internets. If you want to add some knobs, rotary encoders or pots, check out the OONTZ accessory plate.

Each order comes with:

You’ll need to add: an Arduino Leonardo, some 22AWG solid core wire (better than stranded but stranded will also work in a pinch), soldering iron & solder, basic hand tools, and a micro USB cable.

Check out the assembly and usage tutorial for code, diagrams, instructions, files and more!

NEW PRODUCT – OONTZ Add-on Acrylic Tweaker/Hacker Panel

Add knobs to your grid with this add-on accessory for the OONTZ. This is a replacement piece of laser cut acrylic to use when building an Adafruit Oontz. It’s perfect for adding a rotary encoder or any of our panel mount potentiometers.

Swap this in during your build or upgrade your OONTZ after the fact. This piece can be used for any/all of the sides except for the one with the USB cutout. So you can use up to 3 for left/front/right knobbin’ action.
