Brent Edstrom's Arduino for Musicians: A Complete Guide to Arduino and PDF

By Brent Edstrom

Arduino, Teensy, and similar microcontrollers supply an almost unlimited variety of inventive possibilities for musicians and hobbyists who're drawn to exploring "do it your self" applied sciences. Given the relative ease of use and coffee rate of the Arduino platform, digital musicians can now envision new methods of synthesizing sounds and interacting with music-making software program. In Arduino for Musicians, writer and veteran track teacher Brent Edstrom opens the door to fascinating and expressive tools and keep watch over platforms that reply to mild, contact, strain, breath, and other kinds of real-time regulate. He offers a entire advisor to the underlying applied sciences permitting digital musicians and technologists to faucet into the huge artistic power of the platform.

Arduino for Musicians provides suitable techniques, together with uncomplicated circuitry and programming, in a building-block layout that's obtainable to musicians and different people who take pleasure in utilizing tune expertise. as well as accomplished assurance of music-related suggestions together with direct electronic synthesis, audio enter and output, and the tune tool electronic Interface (MIDI), the booklet concludes with 4 initiatives that construct at the innovations provided through the ebook. The tasks, on the way to be of curiosity to many digital musicians, contain a MIDI breath controller with pitch and modulation joystick, "retro" step sequencer, customized digital/analog synthesizer, and an expressive MIDI hand drum.

Throughout Arduino for Musicians, Edstrom emphasizes the benefit and accessibility of the apparatus in addition to the vast number of tools it could encourage. whereas circuit layout and programming are in themselves ambitious issues, Edstrom introduces their center techniques in a realistic and easy demeanour that any reader with a heritage or curiosity in digital song can make the most of. Musicians and hobbyists at many degrees, from these drawn to developing new digital tune units, to these with event in synthesis or processing software program, will welcome Arduino for Musicians.
