DIY Modular Synth with Jerrycan Kick Drum, Rice Shakers, and Solenoids #MusicMonday
From the endlessly creative mind of Afrorack, here’s a jam on a DIY Jerrycan kick drum, rice shakers, solenoids and modular synth.
Just wanted to experiment with eletromechanical music instruments and this is an effort of a few days. I hope to build some more stuff. Was hesitant at first because solenoids are not cheap to buy but whats the fun in buying when you can wind your own.
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.
