Return to Previous Lesson: Writing the Code

Lesson Overview:

Now we'll make an enclosure for our instrument!

Step 1: Cut Out the Template

Now that the electronics and code are complete, it's time to think about an enclosure for the keyboard. While old analog synthesizers had wires poking out all over the place, your keyboard is sleek and digital. Prepare a small piece of cardboard that can be cut out to accommodate your buttons. Label the keys, so you know what notes are triggered by each key. You can use the picture and instructions below as a guide.

Now you have a more realistic looking instrument! Enjoy your creation!

  1. Draw and cut a piece of paper with holes for the four buttons and piezo. Decorate it to look like piano keys.

  2. Position the paper over the buttons and piezo.

Congratulations, you have completed this project!
