This is a video of me using my Arduino Uno to control my custom 8-note sequencer.

Here is the program:
Source code.

This is the original video where I demo the 8-note sequencer on its own:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
I'll do my best to answer it.
<p>this is amazing! truly amazing. nice work. i am musician from england living in sweden. I use a lot of synths in my work and for years have been wanting to create my own. though i am completely new to this. if i could please ask for your advice.. in building a synth where should a complete novice like myself start? a 555 oscillator? i realise i am in way over my head with all of this but i'm so stubborn. i have to make one. </p><p>a bit of advice would be extremely appreciate.</p><p>cheers</p><p>Nicholas Perry</p>
I no authority on the topic, but I do think the 555 timer is a good place to start. The 555 is pretty low quality, but it can be a great way to get yourself familiar with electronic oscillators.<br><br>You will want to look into filters too (RC filters are simple and fun).<br><br>And there are other oscillators out there other than 555 timers. But a lot of them can be really complicated and difficult to understand their working (and even more difficult to put together, much less design).
<p>Hey, could you re upload the code txt. ? Thanks !</p>
<p>here is the code (the text file and the ino file are really the same file. just open the ino file with the arduino sketchbook program or with notepad++)<br>http://www.mediafire.com/view/z17cyb90e7f3963/_8_note_sequencer_controller.ino</p>
<p>Thanks ! Meanwhile I wrote a new code myself for the same purpose but I'll take a look at this one.</p>
<p>sure thing!</p>
