Wires + buttons = keyboard

17. February 2022 at 17:00

Workshop for young people and adults in the Oton Youth Center, Župančičevo sprehajališče 1, Novo mesto

Are you interested in how to extract sound from the keyboard? How can we determine for ourselves how loud a certain sound will sound and what the pitch of a certain tone will be?

In the workshop, we will make a simple prototype of a keyboard from several keys or. buttons. We will learn what potentiometers are, what their role is on different devices, what they can control and how we can set them to affect sound. We will also get acquainted with the operation of the beeper, the operation of the keys, and learn more about the operation of the microcontroller, which sends information to the elements. In the end, we will be able to try to play the song with our instrument 🙂
