This is a quickly-built musical instrument that I made using the "free" promotional dance-dance-revolution dance mats that Kraft is giving out.

Step 1: Get a free DDR dancemat

Kraft is giving these out for $6 - including shipping, so it won't set you back much to get one.
I put kfatwindows.pd and kraftpad_win32wrapper.pd in anywhere, but where i put the joystick .dll? <br> <br>In same folder that pd_joystick, downloaded of http://crca.ucsd.edu/~jsarlo/pd/? <br> <br>or <br> <br>C:\Program Files (x86)\pd\extra? <br> <br>I am newbie.
Hi! <br> <br>It has been some time since I wrote this, and I actually don't remember where that .dll needs to go. But I'd try duplicating it, putting a copy of it in both of those places -- and you might also try putting a copy into the windows directory for good measure. <br> <br>Best of luck! <br>-David
I can't seem to find that pad. The link does not work... :((((
glad to see people using Pure Data
could u use that pad just as a controler for step mania (the computer DDR thing)?
I haven't tried that, but I think you could.. It looks identical to the $60 DDR controller that is for sale online..
I don't think you should have held the camera while playing that. Neat project, though. Would you be willing to post your code?
p.s. thanks to Joe Rothermich for adapting my original code to work in Windows (it was in Linux)
You're in luck! If you're using windows, you can use the code that I put up, on the &quot;build a software program&quot; page of this instructable. <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/EIYJEPMACQERIE1WXB/">http://www.instructables.com/id/EIYJEPMACQERIE1WXB/</a><br/>
heh, yeah I wanted the viewer to get the feel for what it's like to actually play the instrument! apologies for any nausea that this caused.. Sure, I'll post the code in a few days - I don't have it with me at the moment.
awsome instructable
very nice! I did some thing similar here: <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/EIJMKZV2EAEP2877XF/?ALLSTEPS">http://www.instructables.com/id/EIJMKZV2EAEP2877XF/?ALLSTEPS</a> I'll certainly add this to the repetoire for my intended users - thanks!<br/>
nice project! looks like fun.
