Controlling a MIDI CC in Ableton Live With an Arduino Uno

https://youtu.be/rx75N4OZCsk In this instructable we will use a potentiometer on an Arduino Uno to control a MIDI CC in Ableton Live. A MIDI CC stands for Continuous Controller, i.e. a number in the range from 0 to 127 inclusive to modulate something with. In the youtube I made for this intro you can see and hear that we modulate the filter frequency with the potentiometer. A potentiometer is an electronics ...

JolliCube (8x8x8 LED Cube) With MD_Cubo Library

So far, we have only built 3 LED cubes. Our first cube is a 4x4x4 LED cube and though we managed to successfully complete it without too much difficulty, we did not find much excitement and satisfaction experimenting with it. Next, we designed, created and built our second cube, an 8x8x8 LED cube driven using the awesome MAX7219 ICs almost a year ago. You may check out our instructable on jolliCubeif y ...

Web-Based Pool Controller W/ Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Xbee and Digital Thermometer

This simple system allows web based remote control of a swimming pool pump and heater, or any device that be switched with simple relays. It uses a Raspberry Pi as the main controller and web server. It also uses a remote thermometer run by an Arduino at the pool, powered by a battery and a solar panel. Two small XBee radio units supply the data link between the pool thermometer and the main controller. I h ...

Arduino Uno R3 Battery Tester

This simple project is intended to help you in answering the lifelong question "Does this battery have any juice left?". Although popularity of single cell batteries (such as AA, AAA, C and D cell) is diminishing, there are still many small devices like TV remotes, flashlights, and other small portable electronics that run on these forms of power. Step 1: Hardware Required In order to make a battery tester, ...

Electromagnet Superhero Glove

For a class assignment, I needed to make something fabric-based which took an Arduino, some programming, and at least two inputs and outputs. After sketching a few different ideas, I hit on this one: an electromagnetic glove for MagnetoGirl. It sprang to life for me, because magnetism is an invisible force which can seem magical. Also, a superhero can be given life, character, and (the best part) a cool cos ...

Arduino Is Slow – and How to Fix It!

Arduino is slow? What? This instructable will show just how slow a part of Arduino is, and how to fix it.  It’s true – more specifically, Arduino’s digitalWrite command takes a considerable amount of time. If you are just switching on a LED once or something, you won’t be able to notice it. However, I realized how slow it was while I was trying to use a TLC5947 PWM driver. That requires the microcontroller ...

Implementing serial communication in embedded systems

Serial communication was once the most widely used method of transferring data between computers. Many computing devices that you have used over time employ serial communication. Some of the terms associated with this type of data transfer are FTDI chip, COM interface, the RS232 protocol, and serial port. Serial communication refers to data that is electronically sent and received a single bit at a time. It ...
