This Synthesizer was Designed to Make Music Production and Performance more Accessible for Folks with Hearing Impairments #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Musical vibrations on a totally different level! From jtoda.one:
‘synesthiser’ is a digital synthesiser made for wave synthesis and playing music through vibration, in addition to sound.
Its main objective is to make music producing / performing more accessible for those who has a hearing impairment. By producing not only vibration, but also audible wave, it could widen the opportunity of desigining sound for the handicapped and non-handicapped people equally.
It has a circular top surface, and it senses pressure and rotation. Pressure determines the amplitude and modulation of the waveform. Whereas rotation changes the frequency.
The vibration comes from a transducer inside the unit. It is attached to the support layer inside the unit, thus resonating the whole exterior.
It mainly generates a low-frequency waves in order to make it feel more tactile, less harmonic.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
