Quote exhibitors application has been successful so I will see you there.  
Grumpy_Mike, what will you be exhibiting ?

Newcastle, UK

Me thinks that you are too lucky...
Hmmm, never really thought of myself as being lucky  smiley-wink

Are you going to gives us a hint on what you going to bring this time?  smiley-wink

Was it your Compukit 101 at the show last year?

I'm planning on going and I know a few of the guys from the Parallax Propeller forums are going as well.

At Dorkbot - Newcastle, John O'Shea from Newcastle's Uni Culture Lab presented his fun and a little wacky "simple twisting interface" prototype used to trigger and control audio samples.

He used an arduino board to read analog information from a rotary pot mashed with a old school audio cassette and relay this to MAXmsp audio software to trigger and control sample audio files.

Its a canny hike from Newcastle for a couple of beers  ;D

Thanks for the heads up on the Sparkfun breakout board. I've been looking for a cheap eval board for the MAX7456 and the SF BoB looks like it'll fit the bill.

I agree with the others, an Arduino driven Fatman synth sounds like a great idea.  smiley

I was planning an Arduino based TB-303 / x0xb0x clone shield but I've been put off by how difficult it is to source the original components (mainly the transistors). So instead I've been looking at the Paia's Fatman or the Voice of Saturn as an analog section with the Arduino providing the digital section.

Let us know Paia's response.

First rate project and a very creative use of bits and pieces from your spares box.

Thanks for your article, I really enjoyed reading it. As westfw said, lots of good technical info  smiley

Atmel seem to be having major problems with there samples system lately. I tried for 3 months to get samples for a work project of their 644 and a Xmegas ATXMEGA256A3 by using their web site but with no luck. Finally after complaining to their UK office I finally got samples of the 644, but still waiting for the Xmega  smiley-sad

Looks great 8-)  

nice price as well
222  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / News / Re: Premier-Farnell to offer own version of Arduino on: July 19, 2010, 04:26:39 am
I got one last week. It does look very similar to the Duemilanove.

Price wise its a bit cheaper at £22.60 than the original Arduino Duemilanove listed at £24.00 in RS.

In fact,  I think the Arduino team is to be commended.  Being able to have Arduino-mega in the hands of REAL USERS on the date it was officially announced  is a real accomplishment.  The distributor pipeline is primed with product and ordinary users can order one immediately (and apparently receive it slightly faster than the distributors thought!)  That's practically unheard of, and it's wonderful!
I can vouch for Arduino excellent work in getting the mega out to the Arduino community.

Like many I saw the "leaked" pictures of the Mega Arduino, thought "hey I want one of those", checked this site to find no announcements so I contacted my local UK supplier who said there would be an announcement made on Thursday 26th March and to get back with in touch with them then. So I waited until Thursday, saw the announcement about the new Mega Arduino, checked with Coolcomponents to find they had stock and ordered one there and then. Checked my emails this morning to find a confirmation that the mega Arduino has been posted and is on its way.

Excellent work by the Arduino team and excellent service from its distributors.

I agree with Lefty, the 644 is a nice fit between the 328 amd 1280. I was just about  to say the Sanguino , an Arduino inspired design uses the 644 but mem beat me to it

I agree about RS being expensive for materials.

Have you tried

Depending where you live you may have one of their stores on your local industrial estate. They have a counter service for you to drop by instead ordering off the web.
