Hi, I am very much a noob so sorry if I am a bit confused.
I would like to create a mechanism where I can have a plectrum move back and forth over a group of sound staves (like strings, but more of them).
I initially thought about let each stave have its own plucking function but that would be very expensive. So I figured this could be a nice way to do it. Later on I might add more sophisticated control over the plucking, like lifting the plectrum, precise control over what stave is plucked, more servos (if this is doable) for "polyphonic" play, tremolo. I will control everything from Pure Data, maybe also add some pitch detection from the staves so you can control the servo by hitting the staves.
So my questions are:
- How would this be done in the best way?
- What components and Arduino should I buy?
Thanks a lot!
