Make a Sequencer from a Tree

Here’s a sneak preview of an upcoming MIDI sequencer learning guide that will demonstrate how to do metal inlay for use as capacitive touch buttons. The Arduino MIDI sequencer library used in the video is available for download, and the learning guide should be available very soon!

The title of the video is a reference to the 1978 book, “Make a Chair from a Tree” by Jennie Alexander. The book is out of print, but many of the green woodworking techniques used in the video can be found in “Green Woodworking” by Drew Langsner, and “Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” by Jennie Alexander and Peter Follansbee.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
