Some particular reason to get so fancy? Sounds like you want to make a "magic" wand with a magnet in it, and wave it at the Arduino to make stuff happen.

Ha Ha Paul .. sounds like you may have built one of these already then smiley

This is also sounding like a school project. What is it that you are trying to do with this ?

I am not sure how the timer is connected to the motor though. This sounds like two tasks.

Cheers Pete.

OK so what is this for, It sounds like a school project.

But what you need to be doing is taking the input from the pot that i will assume is wired across the 5v voltage of the arduino and Gnd with its wiper connection going to A0.

Next you need to map the incoming value from the ADC 0-1024 to 0-1000.

Then set up a series of "if/ else if" statements to capture the range of values that you are interested in. Then for each condition run a function to either sequence the LEDs or do what ever else it is that you are wanting to do.. If you need the functions to be non blocking then a little more work is required.

Cheers Pete.

Hi Paul,

What blocked you,  I went in and filled out the form without issues.

None of my AVs fired a warning  ~~~

Lets hope it was nothing....

Cheers Pete.

Another alternative is to set up an interrupt from one of the timers. you can then cause your strobes and fades to occur based on a counter that increments in the interrupt routine. You main loop will then not end up waiting for an event or number to be reached it simply test for it and moves on whilst the ISR does the timing for you.

Cheers Pete.

            Are you looking for someone to work from Italy or teleworking. I have all the required skills that you are looking for but I live in France.

             I am a small R&D company that specializes in taking concepts through to production ready designs. I have several Kick starter projects that I have been the lead developer for including "The Barman"

             Take a quick look at my website and if you think that I am a good match for your requirement then I will expand on my skills and experience for you.

Cheers Pete.

So what do you have already.

I see a video of someone else s work showing what you are trying to achieve but no references to what you already have and what exactly it is that you need help with.

Cheers Pete.

a Hall effect sensor Ratiometric, you can measure the speed at which the key is struck, "sensitive"

really .. are you planning on measuring the rate of change of the input signal to calculate the velocity.

In the case of a polyphonic keyboard you would need to be doing that for as many keys as you where supporting

Ratiometric simply means that the OP of the device is directly proportional to the input. so the higher the Gauss the higher the OP voltage.

I am interested in how you are going to achieve this with the MUX and the Arduino. It sounds like a challenge .. and i love a challenge smiley

Funding aside on this project most modern keyboards have weight (Velocity) and after-touch on the keys so that you can tell how hard they where hit and then adjust the pressure on the key after it is struck to add expression to the playing.

You are only going to be able to measure if a key has been hit with the hall effect switches.

Cheers Pete.

Hello Rebeca,

Just stepping back into this to see how you got on.

If you got it to work would you like to share it with us.

Cheers Pete.

Hello Gary, I sent you an email but have not had any reply.

Does this mean .....

  • You don't need the help anymore
  • My skills are not what you  are looking for
  • You did not get my email

Cheers Pete.

OK so I read this a few times and am not sure i understand what it is you are asking for here.

You have listed the doubts and where you feel the system may not perform as you want it to but have not really said why you seeking help here.

Cheers Pete.

There are a lot of references to this HID device and how to use it with the Arduino. There is even a library if you look hard enough. IMUs are also well documented with reference to the Arduino. Gluing it all together is not that complicated. However as you have said .. You dont have the time and are prepared to pay someone to do it for you.

I have sent you an Email with my details.

Cheers Pete.
