After a few days of confident air drumming in the car, I figured it was time to pick up the sticks again and get my chops back. Unfortunately, my bank account didn’t agree. As a maker, it’s always more fun to make it yourself, anyway. Seeing as I didn’t have much more than a few ripe bananas, there weren’t many options.
Having learned of Adafruit’s Circuit Playground supporting capacitive touch, I knew it was the perfect candidate for my virtual drumset. With just a few clicks, I was able to get jammin’ in no time. What’s even better is that I wasn’t just limited to percussion. Suddenly, I was a multi-instrumentalist.
