vtol’s 240-Step Sequencer-Synthesizer | #MusicMonday

I’m guessing this thing is at least 8 feet long, maybe up to 10 – given there are 240 10k pot sliders! It uses an Arduino Mega with 74HC4067 multiplexors and a Teensy for LED control – and it sounds great!

Interactive sound installation. Sequencer-synthesizer with 240 steps, that allows to create rhythmic compositions. Object has complex control system with possibility to add or delete “voices”, change tempo of whole sequence or individually for each voice, to change number and direction of steps.

The project is created specially for Open Codes exhibition in ZKM center, dedicated to codes and programming in art. On one side, Ivy is a representation of an archaic method of electronic music programming for analog synthesizers. On the other side – gigantic scale and obsessive multiplication of simple primitive elements turns this project into an art installation, that is referring to the topic of graphic and physical organization of parameters in electronic music.

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.
