Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
Jeremy shared his great music box project at hackaday.io that has been making the rounds in the Adafruit community this week. (We’re huge fans of cnc/stepper music – and here’s a sample of Erik Satie’s “hard as hell to perform” 23-hour Vexations performed by a CupCake CNC.)
After seeing someone’s floppy-drive orchestra, I was inspired to reuse my stepper motors from another project. The music starts as a MIDI file, pre-processed in C# into a text file. The Raspberry Pi runs a Python script to watch the play/stop button and play out note data via serial to the Iteaduino Mega, with a Dual Stepper Shield to drive the two steppers and two servos.(read more – and see the tour inside here)
