The Counterpointer is a cross between an electronic arpeggiator and a baroque music rule book. It takes a melody input and responds with voices that follow the rules of counterpoint.
Software developed in Java using Processing.org. The Counterpointer uses CFGen’s species counterpoint algorithm. Firmware runs on an Arduino micro-controller.
If you want to check it out in person, the showcase continues through July 30 at Red Bull Studios New York. I snuck a peek inside the Counterpointer’s prototype and spied an Arduino Mega:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
