Algorithmic noise machine

This project is a part of experiments done while doing an artist in residence at Instructables. You can see the other projects here. You can use bit-shifting as an alternative way of creating "music". This principle enables you to squeeze as much processing power as possible out of the Arduino while creating novel and interesting effects. The challenge lies in composing through bitshifting.  This is an exam ...

Tissue Box Guitar – Light Strings using Arduino

the idea of anything can be an instrumental music has been always in my mind so i made a wooden tissue box that i installed inside it a guitar of light strings Step 1: Building Box i made this wooden tissue box Step 2: Wiring we make the LDR wiring on a the top shelf of the box ... while the Led's are on the buttom shelf we place them under the LDR's directly to make the light effective on the LDR. Ultrason ...

Simple Ipod Controller using an Arduino

This instructable will help you understand the iPod serial protocol, and how to send commands to an iPod using an Arduino.  This instructable is only meant to show the basics of the protocol and is by no means complete.  I only had enough hardware space for 4 buttons, and the software reflects that. Hardware Needed : 1x Arduino 4x Push Buttons 4x 10k ohm resistor 3x 1k ohm resistor 1x 500k equival ...

UnDecima Audio Output from Arduino

I already have one project where arduino outputs audio signal to USB speakers via software 10-bits PWM.  In first, I was not satisfied with quality of sound generated via PWM. There are just not enough speed in arduino engine  to run PWM well.  For example for 20.000 Hz audio, PWM has to be at least 2 – 3 times higher  above normal frequency range, or 40 – 60 kHz. If we multiply this value with 10-bits reso ...

EL Wire Hat: Sequenced and Sound Activated with Remote Control

Welcome to the Instructable guide of my EL Wire hat with some fun features. The concept is an EL Wired hat with 8 sequenced EL wires controlled by a wired remote. Multiple speed controllable sequence modes are pre-programmed into an Arduino UNO, including a sound activation feature. Features: 7 sequence modes (speed controlled) 1 sound activated mode (sensitivity controlled) 1 sequence mode that goes throug ...

A Voice Shield for Arduino Board

The objective of this project is to build an Arduino voice shield to empower thousands of voice related applications! All this mostly thanks to an integrated ISD1790PY chip. This particular voice/TTS  feature can be useful to integrate voice messages in alarm systems, to implement generic I/O controls in home automation or even in home security applications: something like playing an alert when a person or ...

Arduino Step Sequencer

I was wondering about on making a sequencer, a big 16 step sequencer was what I wanted to make. To it's full extension with lots of features including single leds for each step, midi input and output, etc. Then I realised that I should start from a more basic model and then maybe tweak around to see what I can do. So while surfing the web and between other small sequencer projects I found this arduino seque ...

Audio Input to Arduino

The easiest way to connect an audio signal to your arduino, is to build a simple 3 components (2 resistors plus cap) circuitry shown on the first drawings on right side. Disadvantage: there is no amplifier, and consequently sensitivity would be low, hardly enough to work with headphones jack output.  For low level signals, like output of electret microphone, amplifier is necessary. Here is the kit, which in ...

Cheap and Easy MP3 Shield for Arduino

This is a follow up to an earlier Instructable for attaching the guts of a cheap clip MP3 player to an Arduino. http://www.instructables.com/id/MP3-Interface-for-Arduino-Cheap-and-Easy/ The previous Instuctable showed how to use the Arduino to control all of the functions of the MP3 player: volume increase and decrease, next and previous MP3 file, play or pause. The previous Instructable also showed how to ...

The Arduino OctoSynth

What is the OctoSynth you may ask? The octosynth is a polyphonic synthesizer that is able to produce eight Pulse Width Modulated tones that form together a musical scale. In English terms, it is a 8 key electronic organ that can play more than one tone at once but only one scale. Special thanks to Joe Marshall who wrote the very useful code. As suggested in the title, it runs on Arduino. So before we get st ...

Representing audio through vibration with Arduino

This project functions to display sound using vibration.  You plug your iPod, computer, or TV into it and get tactile feedback representing the loudness of the audio.  It can help deaf people to experience sound. Stuff you need: Arduino USB Cable Computer running Arduino software (www.arduino.cc/download/) Breadboard LEDs Pager Motors Three 100K resistors Six 220uF resistors 1K potentiometer 3-Conductor Ste ...
