I just got a Voice Shield kit for Arduino (analog audio shield that allows you to record and play audio sound bytes), along with a 2-axis joystick (fancy analog interface to two potentiometers).

Once I’ve got the shield put together I’m going to make a basic how-to video on triggering it with the joystick. Any suggestions on what I should demo? Such as, trigger sound bytes at different rates? Try to mix tiny samples one after another at different pitches to create harmonies? Henny Youngman soundboard? Please add suggestions in the comments.

You can buy the Voice Shield kit for Arduino the 2-axis joystick and an Arduino in the Maker Shed.
