Hello everyone, first-time poster here. So I recently purchased a Funduino kit, along with a pressure/force sensor.
Basically, I'm trying to build a synth, with force induced keys using the force sensors. Each key should be made out of memory-foam, placed on top of the sensor.
When pressed, the foam is to send that information through the sensor, to the arduino board, then once released, the idea would be to have the sound fade away (another idea would be to have a note going from one octave to another depending on the pressure applied on the key).
So far I'm a bit lost in that vast Arduino ocean. I followed the basic tutorials (blink, fade, etc) aswell as some found on the net : http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/index.html Force sensor related : https://learn.adafruit.com/force-sensitive-resistor-fsr/using-an-fsr
I'm still struggling to understand basic code, but I'll get there.. eventually.
I'm trying to figure out how to produce a sound, so far I have a buzzer/piezo, but it's not really ideal for making music...
Any tips, ideas ? Know any good tutorials or related projects ? Do you guys even think the project is feasible ?
Oh one last question : should I get a mp3 Shield for such a project ?
