Air Drums Using Atmega32

Introduction One Sentence Sound Bite Air Drums is an electronic drum kit played in the air that eliminates the need for tactile drum pads. Summary We created an electronic percussion set with three upright percussion sounds and a floor bass drum sound. The upright instruments require one/two modified drumsticks to play, while the floor drum requires an electronic bass pedal. The important difference between ...

Dueling Banjos Using Atmega32

Introduction Our project was to create two individual microcontrollers that can play banjo notes cooperatively to play two-part songs using nothing but sound to communicate and synchronize. Humans have had the ability to synchronize musical instruments together to achieve a single, coordinated multi-part song for thousands of years. In our project we attempted to simulate the necessary communication and tim ...

Adaptive 60 Hz Noise Cancellation Using Atmega32

An active noise canceler to eliminate the 60 Hz noise found in electrical signals due to AC power-line contamination. 60 Hz noise is frustrating for anyone trying to make sensitive measurements of low voltage processes (eg. Electrocardiogram measurements), record audio from electrical instruments (eg. guitar "hum"), or use electronic systems near an AC transformer. The most common way to eliminate the noise ...

Music Wand: Real-Time Optical Scanning of Sheet Music Using Atmega32

Introduction The Music Wand is a device that optically reads printed sheet music in real-time and synthesizes the notes which are read from the page. The device uses a linear image sensor mounted on the end of a handheld wand to scan printed sheet music and identify the note pitches. For each note detected, a synthesized piano note is played at the detected pitch. We chose this project in order to explore i ...

Movement to Music: A Wearable Wireless Motion Sensor system Using Atmega32

Introduction In this digital age, new interfaces for musical expression provide much broader musical possibilities than have ever existed before. There is a constant quest to be in harmony with one’s instrument so that music can flow freely from the imagination and take form effortlessly. This sparks an interest in new ways to interact with instruments, because we may be able to achieve more fluid methods f ...
