the sbx 16x4x3 (SkinnerBox StepSequencer)


Another, interesting arduino based step sequencer.
Very well documented.
People are just harvesting hardly!

as we want to connect 20 buttons, 2 potentiometers
and a 12 scale mode-selector, we need a total of 34 inputs. additionally, we want to control 20 led´s, so we need 20 digital outputs. the arduino has 6 analog inputs and 14 digital inputs/outputs, which is obviously not enough, so we are going to use five
4051 analog multiplexers to multiply our analog inputs and create a total of 40 inputs, and three 595 shift registers to multiply our digital outputs and create a total of 24 outputs.

Code Ready. Wow.

Beatseqr – an arduino mega based computer interface


Finally a good attempt to make an Arduino Based controller. Steve Cooley is presenting his Beatseqr.
The data is sent to the computer via OSC. Source code for the project is available on github.
Comment & congratulate on Beatseqr blog for the time and effort.
