4 step sequencer

Messing with the Axoloti board made me want to bang constantly notes while I am fiddling with sliders, values and parameters. First I started to bang MIDI notes using Live, but something didn’t feel right. I wanted to get rid of the computer, so there is no fun in having the computer generating notes. I ended up using an Arduino to bang some random MIDI notes, but this was also feeling weird.. I wanted more control over the notes, so let’s add a potentiometer to control the note’s pitch?
Ok, now I have two potentiometers, one for the time interval and another to specify the note pitch. This worked for the first 10 minutes, after this I was adding more pots, more buttons and even LEDs, and with a simple program, my first Step Sequencer was born.
