Here's my idea. Please share your concerns.
I have 5 keyes microphones for the arduino. I have the 4 pins soldered to RJ-45 female (using 4 of 8 of the connectors) suspended on a clamp-like device that hangs close to the drum being mic'ed (a bass drum for instance). Do this 4 more times with snare, hi-hat, etc. I use 5 ethernet cables to connect the RJ-45 female Keyes Mic end to a breadboard and raspberry pi which routes everything to ground / analog in / etc. I use the arduino to basically sort out thresholds to determine whether a drum has been hit. If it registers over a certain threshold, it will send the value on.
I can manage the part after I get the data pumping in the serial monitor; I'm confident with that.
Can +, G, A0, D0 be extended over RJ-45 and many feet of cable without worries?
Is 5V from Arduino enough to power these 5 microphones? (there are only two slots in the arduino, but maybe they can just be routed to the breadboard for extended slots?
I know only enough about electronics to be dangerous. Or maybe this isn't so bad.
Let me know if there are other things I should be worried about.
