The Paspberry Pi Pico is what you would possibly name the board of the second, due to its mixture of affordability, options, and continued availability throughout the part scarcity. We’ve seen loads of nice tasks utilizing it, and the newest to drift previous is [todbot]’s PicoStepSeq, an especially compact MIDI sequencer.
All of the elements are mounted on a PCB, with the sequencer’s eight steps chosen by a row of buttons with built-in LEDs. The interface is through an SSD1306 OLED, and there may be additionally a rotary encoder. Software program comes courtesy of CircuitPython, and the output is delivered through a 3.5 mm TRS jack. Lastly the entire is wrapped in a 3D printed enclosure.
The result’s a sequencer that would virtually be a product in its personal proper, and we predict anybody whose pursuits lie in digital music ought to discover easy sufficient to construct. All of the information and data required to construct your personal will be discovered within the linked repository, and he’s positioned a Tweet with a video on-line which we’ve embedded under the break.
I did it! In 2 weeks I designed, coded, PCB fabbed, & CAD’d an enclosure for a product thought: a tiny Pico-based MIDI step sequencer “PicoStepSeq”. Thx to @johnedgarpark for inspiration & @adafruit for prototyping instruments pic.twitter.com/kek4U2Y4mq
