NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Arcade Synth Controller @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #arcade
New Guide Alert — John Park’s Arcade Synth Controller is here! Build your own arpeggiator synthesizer/MIDI controller in the form of a fight stick/piano keyboard mashup! It’s perfect for chiptunes. You’ll use LED Arcade 1×4 boards, a joystick, MIDI FeatherWing, Feather M4 Express, and lots of shiny buttons to build this retro-style synth.
(This project is based on the amazing Pianocade. Long live Pianocade.)
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.
