Wave mix arduino synth osc + MIDI + ADSR


Arduino Mega doing wavetable osc function with ADSR envelope. Coplex yet clever use of analogIn(s). It’s a nice project held by neutronium (blogging as well on Physical Guitar synth project) Cool.
Code provided on the arduino forum post. The all project is to modulate / mix / output control signal for VCF

Arduino Hard Drive Clock by NatureTM


Crazi spinning HardDrive Clock from Hacked Gadgets Forum contributor NatureTm.
No code provided (yet?)

“The first interrupt just records the time that the slot reaches the sensor and sets the position to zero. [It actually sets the position to the offset value since the sensor isn’t at 12 o’clock and I like to think of 12 as pos 0.] Now I can tell how long a rotation takes and how long it has been since the last completed rotation.”

Connecting a PS2 Keyboard to an Arduino


Andreas form Malta shows us how to connect and use Arduino with a standard PS2 Keyboard, a nice step by step instructable-style post.

After some soldering he basically uses PS2Keyboard library overwrote with PS2KeyboardExt2. Nice.

Arduino and BlinkM Music Visualizer


Wonderful yet triky music visualization with BlinkM.


  • 1 Arduino
  • 4 BlinkM units (salvaged from the wireless blinkm project)
  • 1 plastic case for the enclosure
  • lm386 low voltage power amplifier (overkill since i’m not driving anything but it’s the only opamp I had lying around)
  • prototype board, wires, resistors, caps, headers, standoffs, screws, sockets, connectors

Code & Circuits ready!
