Spherical sequencer fit for the dancefloor

Arduino Music

Bruce demos his blinky synthing sphere built with Arduino and dubbed ‘Diver’ –

An Arduino sound project, Diver is an instrument inspired by old Analog Sequencers and Theremins. It allows creating a four-note looped melody which can be manipulated in real-time with knobs that can assign upto 5 octaves for each note. Each knob lights up to indicate it’s position in the loop.

The top of Diver houses a sensor which can be used to control the tempo of the loop in real-time. Use Diver in live performances or at home to produce awesome loops, melodies and special effects.

An all-out raver by night, the Diver seems an unassuming little spacepod by day – the lit knobs are a nice touch. More demo videos including the above-mentioned sensor control can be seen on Bruce’s blog.
