From the Forums: Listen to the Ambient Sounds Generated by Adafugue | #MusicMonday
Big thanks to forums user gkuetemeyer for sending this in – this project looks (and sounds) fantastic!
Adafugue Ambient Music Generator. Summer evening noodling. Based on EM sample and hold techniques. Driven by Arduino Uno, Adafruit Trellis, multiple Adafruit I2C DAC breakout boards, and Mayhew analog multiplexer shield
With a little more in-depth description from the forums:
Working on an ambient music generator called “Adafugue.” Based on electronic music’s sample and hold techniques: input various types of waveforms (sawtooth, triangle, square, sine, noise); sample them at regular intervals; take those values and turn them into notes to be played. Currently using 4 X Adafruit Trellis and Arduino Uno to control note selection, voltage inputs and assignments to various musical parameters. Created some dual LFOs (low frequency oscillators) using Arduino Uno and Adafruit MCP4725 DACs for inputs.
Adafugue Ambient Music Generator. Glitch noodling inspired by 4-month-old Maeve’s appreciation of “I Am The Walrus.” Based on EM sample and hold techniques driving dynamic pitch, tempo, and instrument voice selection. Using Arduino Uno, Adafruit Trellis, multiple Adafruit I2C DAC breakout boards, and Mayhew Labs 48 input Analog Multiplexer Shield.
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.
