Simple keyboard using the tone() function using Arduino
This example shows how to use the tone() command to generate different pitches depending on which sensor is pressed.
Connect one terminal of your speaker to digital pin 8 through a 100 ohm resistor, and its other terminal to ground.
Power your three FSRs (or any other analog sensor) with 5V in parallel. Connect each sensor to analog pins 0-2, using a 10K resistor as a reference to groud on each input line.
The sketch below reads three analog sensors. Each corresponds to a note value in an array of notes. IF any of the sensors is above a given threshold, the corresponding note is played.
Here’s the main sketch:
Plays a pitch that changes based on a changing analog input
* 3 force-sensing resistors from +5V to analog in 0 through 5
* 3 10K resistors from analog in 0 through 5 to ground
* 8-ohm speaker on digital pin 8
