Bleep Labs' New intro to Arduino Course - "Creating light and sound"

Bleep Labs

"Bleep Labs' new online dadageek course, 'Creating Light and Sound' starts Sept 21st. This time we’ll learn how to code in the Arduino platform using a 8x8 RGB LED screen, accelerometer, touch sensors, and more, all with the powerful Teesny 3.2. Sign up now for 20% off.

Here’s a quick video showing what you can do with the solder free kit that’s included in the cost of the course.
It’s tricky to shoot video of these bright LEDs but they look great in person.

The first and last sections are a generative device which creates random-ish arpeggios and changing colors to go with them. Controls changes filters, colors, delay feedback, and the rate of the arpeggio. The audio is coming straight from the device.

In the second section a simple bitmap scrolls and loops. Colors are scroll speed are controlled with the knobs. Rather than creating sound directly this one sends MIDI notes and CCs to VCV rack.

In the third section two bouncing balls are simulated with random notes chosen each time they hit the wall. Of course there is also a tape delay effect. All sounds generated by the device.

Check out the code for these devices here.

When you take the class you get seven, three hour sessions in a class that is capped at fourteen students. The class is also just the beginning. I encourage my students to keep contacting me with their questions and ideas long after the class is done.
