micro:bit projects: set tempo with a metronome! @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

via microbit.co.uk

Using technology in music is totally will.i.am’s jam. Computers have made it much easier for musicians to perform and produce music, even in really simple ways.

When working with singers, sometimes will.i.am will make the performance interesting by using a faster or slower tempo than normal. In cases like that, making sure everyone is keeping time is definitely important – we can use the BBC micro:bit as a metronome and make sure everyone can keep the beat.

For this make, you will need:

  • A micro:bit and USB cable (like, obviously)
  • A battery pack
  • A piezo buzzer
  • Connecting wires or crocodile clips

Fancy mechanical metronomes have a large swinging arm so you can see and hear when the beat is, as well as make the tempo faster or slower.

  • Our micro:bitronome should do the same thing:
  • Make a noise and show an image on every beat
  • Be able to speed up or slow down the tempo
  • Be able to reset the tempo back to normal
