Solenoid concert

Arduino Music

Here’s a “software-sequencer which controls 8 solenoids that knock on different things and therefore produce rhythmic noise. Made with Puredata, an Arduino and a homemade relayboard to control the solenoids”.

    I’d love to see something like this as a weekend project!
    that would be amazing.

    This is great! It’s got a great ‘Stomp’ feel to it.

    I like to build one myself. Do you have documentation to share? Such as circuits and software?

  5. Joe says:

    Great video! Love it.

    Interesting ideas, I just wish the video didn’t make me sea sick. I felt like I was watching the Blair Witch Project.

  7. Andy says:

    Yeah, where’s the documentation! I want to know where he’s getting his solenoids and the details of the relays!

    Excellent idea, but as your neightbour, I could kill you for that ;)

    Awesome, but without source code, didn’t happen. :)

    Seriously, I’d love to see code and documentation or even just your parts list.

    This is giving me ideas. XD I’m thinking “solenoid piano.”

    Its great work ! Timing software for home automation, to control irrigation, hydroponics, lights etc. This is a program that enables the PC to connect to the outside world, by using the printer port LPT1.
