‘Drumlights’ are Sound-Reactive LEDs for Drum Kits | #MusicMonday
Check out the video below to see – and hear! – this project in action and be sure to check out the Github repo for lots of details and insights on the making of this project – for a ‘work in progress’ it’s a great build already!
My daughter and I are adding interactive leds to her drum set for fun and a learning experience. This is our project we setup for us to take it from concept to reality.
Pro(s): This is a great arduino learning project and will be awesome when implemented.
Con(s): Expensive, when making one for every drum/cymbal in the set. You could probably use fewer trinkets if powering from an external source instead of USB. I thought about this later but just went ahead with one trinket per drum/cymbal.
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.
