microDrum 1 : A New Hope

Dear microdrummers, has been a long process but it ended. The microDrum 1 is ready to be printed. As you can see from the picture is an "all inclusive" card, that is, in the same board there are also 12 stereo jack (24 inputs), MIDI ports, USB and power. Also, big news, for the first time the card also supports audio output via the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is connected to the ...

The first nanoDRUMs were shipped!

In the past days I have updated the firmware code, introducing support for nanoDrum, I published the latest version of the firmware picoMIDI for MIDI-USB, and the schemes of nanoDrum. picoMIDI is also compatible with the microDrum so if you want to use in order to create your MIDI-USB adapter with a ATTiny4313 , you can do it using the code on GitHub. I lost time to make this version of ...

picoMIDI

Hi friends, excuse me if I was a bit absent but have been very busy with work. I was able to write a first version of the USB-MIDI drivers for Attiny4313 (for nanoDrum, but can also be used separately). Here is the link on GitHub. The code is not yet fully operational, but I hope to finish soon so I can stop the fundraising and send the first nanoDRUMs. picoMIDI ...

Fundraising (reloaded)

...after the suggestions (thanks Wesley) I redesigned the nanodrum: without Arduino 24 inputs MIDI IN and MIDI OUT simple direct connection with LCD, 2 buttons and Wav Trigger expansion connectors shift register for the LCD (3 free digital inputs) USB port (for MIDI and firmware upload) and therefore I propose again the idea of collecting funds to print the first PCBs. The use of the shift register is well documented on the internet ...

Dangerous snakes

For those who have problems using the new version of config tool made in python (on GitHub) using the interpreter, I decided to create an executable. For now I made only the Windows version, I hope to achieve in the short one for the Mac. In any case, starting from the Python script in GitHub you get the same result, just install the required modules. In this version, you can ...

New Video (I kept my promise)

Ok, this video may seem like another demonstration how much poorly I play the drum but reality shows that I was able to make a fully self-contained module for eDrum. Hence it will no longer need to connect microDrum to PC to play but just turn it on ... you can also upload your own  favorites samples. All this thanks to  Jamie Robertson's  WAV Trigger  (APPLAUSE!).  Of course it was also ...
