chipKIT Drum Set with MikroE Clicks

chipKIT: TouchClamp Click Drum Machine

Drum sets are fun to play! Now you can make your very own noise (or shall we say ‘music’) maker, and all without soldering a thing. All you need are a handful of bottles and cans (which will act as the drum pads) with some alligator clip wires (clips on both ends) connected to a chipKIT Uno32 via an Arduino Uno click shield and two MikroElektronika click boards with audio and touch sense capabilities. The TouchClamp click acts as the input for the drumming, and the MP3 click provides the audio for each “drum.” A clever little idea, we thought.

Why not make some noise with your own drum set. For all the details, check out the chipKIT drum set tutorial!

chipKIT Halloween JukeBox

Digilent Halloween Contest Entry – Human Jukebox

As part of Digilent’s Halloween Design Contest, Sam and Tommy posted their “Human Jukebox” entry on Instructables. This thing is pretty neat, using among other things, the chipKIT uC32, a 1sheeld, and conductive paint (way cool!).

Enjoy!

Making Music with chipKIT


Whether it’s for the quickly approaching Halloween, or for some other event, it’s not too late to make ghoulish soundtracks or a creaky old door sounds with chipKIT.

Check out this Hackaday simple mini polyphonic synth demo for more info! Also, if you plan on using PWM, you’ll be happy to know there’s already a library written for that! Check out the PWMAudio Library for chipKIT on GitHub.

Happy Sound Making!!
