Super-Simple "Taurus" Pedals Using Arduino

Pete McBennett

"OK, this is just something I slapped together for fun. It's built on a clip-board from the Dollar Tree store, with the clip removed. The "pedals" are just strips of PC board with copper on the bottom, and screws underneath for contacts.

It's programmed for a simple pentatonic scale, because I could only fit five across with enough spacing. The upper left pedal is to cycle through five different scales, and the upper right pedal is a mute switch.

There are two RCA jacks mounted on a piece of aluminum. One is for audio out, the other is trigger out. They go up to my filter (same one as my previous videos), which is conveniently located up on the desk. I'll upload more info and the code in another video, if anybody wants to experiment with their own version."
