8 Step Sequencer

After proving myself that I could build a 4 step sequencer, I decided to move further and put it on a prototyping board, this time with 8 steps, and start messing with MIDI parameters like Velocity and Gate.

Because time is that precious thing, and this is being done after labour hours, I just soldered jumper wires to the components going directly into the Arduino headers, I really wanted to start programming this thing.

Such a crazy setup also means that hardware debugging will be a nightmare, I guess I have absolute faith in my soldering and wiring skills :D I totally disencourage anyone to approach a project this way, but anyway, do as I say not as I do..

The following video shows a quick test drive. The arduino sends MIDI messages to an Axoloti Core through MIDI, witch is the instrument being played.

  1. Olá Guilherme, grande projecto ! Tenho andado a experimentar algumas coisas “musicais for dummies” com o arduino também, mas só consigo reproduzir sons de bits ahah este projecto foi baseado em algum online ? Se sim, gostaria muito se me pudesse facultar algum link ou algum esquema electrónico para tentar fazer um semelhante em casa !
    Obrigado e continuação de bom trabalho !
    Um abraço, DC

  2. Viva! Este projecto foi todo feito de raiz e não tem mais documentação do que esta que está neste post.
    Existem imensos projectos de sequenciadores opensource com arduino, basta fazer uma procura.
