I always wanted to build a music visualizer, but it always seemed awfully complicated. After finding a sound detector module on the interwebs I thought that it might be doable after all. Using some basic electronics, and a jar from ikea, this turned out pretty cool, and I am quite happy with it. Being a computer scientist student I loved playing with the code, and tweaking different parameters to produce different results. I have uploaded it so you can see what I did, and to use it or modify it if you want. It’s not finished (probably never will be), and not perfect. Contributions appreciated!
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
