We have come across a lot of a lot of instruments, made from Arduino, but none like this one, so far. This device, makes beautiful music, literally. Take a look at the video, below.
Balam Soto, has truly left us, spellbound! This instrument creates different sounds, when you touch different points. The sounds, then generate changes in the projections. It’s main components are a wireless box of wood, plexiglass and ATmega2560 Arduino Mega.
Soto says, he has used the common understnading to fuse sound and visuals to make them realtime interactive. Each column has a capacitive touch sensor on top which are touched to create music. It is called Exp.Inst.Rain.
Arduino Mega is embedded beneath the columns which acts as the brain of the project. It runs the software and acts as a bridge between the device and the MIDI program. It can be connected to an iPad via an open sound control interface network. This instrument comes with 12 notes, which means a complete octave, three different sound modes and knobs to alter the pitch.
