Innovation on Music Instruments as an educational and creative tool has being a subject of research in the last couple of years. Having two members of our team being students from a high school with a strong musical curriculum we come up with this new instrument.
We present a new take on music interaction where a single interface (glove) can control different instruments at a time.
The Matrix Voice ESP32 give us the chance to break the process in two different tasks:
The collection of data using external sensors (pressure) and
the voice command recognition with SNIPS, instrument management and play.
The ESP32 running a Tensilica Xtensa dual-core microcontroller handle the analog input coming from the pressure sensors and communicate to the Raspberry Pi 3 controller program thru a UART channel.
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!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
