Arduino Music


The Drum Kit Kit, available from the Maker Shed, lets turn you Arduino (not included) into a drum kit! Piezo discs act as the drum sensors so you can build your own pads or stick the the discs to your desk, paper cups, walls, or anything else that might carry a beat. The software lets your Arduino interface with Garageband or other music program like Abelton Live.
