Using Percussa's AudioCubes with Arduino
"If you’ve been living under a rock, and haven’t heard about the Arduino yet, it’s described as an 'open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.' One of the key features of the Arduino platform is the way it can serve as the 'glue' in a system – reading inputs from physical sensors and transmitting those values to a computer. The Arduino can also be used to generate analog voltages from a computer, and that’s exactly what we need here. An analog synthesizer will often use what’s called 'control voltage' to modulate parameters like oscillator frequency, filter cutoff, or an amplitude envelope. We’re going to connect the Evolvor software to an Arduino so that we can control a synthesizer." Full details here.
