It’s pre-Teralabs time! (although it’s only a month old, I’m still doing my art GCSE)
This is my GCSE mock art piece, which takes in voice input and replays it as LEDs, of which the number represents how loud the voice was at that part of the recording. So if it was to detect a very loud voice for 700ms and then it reduced in volume, most of the LEDs would be lit for 700ms, and then the number would decrease (the code works in intervals of 100ms, and randomly selects which of the LEDs are on at any one time per 100ms, whilst keeping to the amount of LEDs that should be on at that time). I’ve kind of messed up this description, so just watch the video here. Want the code? Get it here. Circuit diagram too? Here (Fritzing (.fzz) file) or here (.jpg).
It was quite an interesting thing to build, to say the least. I was originally using conductive paint, but in the exam (!) I found out that it didn’t work over longer distances, so I had to replace it with real wire. I was also planning to use an Arduino Pro Mini, but the code wouldn’t upload for some crazy reason so that was out of the question. Basically, I was pretty unlucky with elements of this, and very glad that this was a mock.
Anyway, IT WORKS! YES! That’s all good.
Hello again. The next two posts are me putting pre-Teralabs stuff on here. So, number one:
This is a Pure Data patch that simply generates an arpeggio, then slowly evolves it by changing those pitches, taking parts of the pattern out or adding slight delays to the arpeggio randomly. It will (or at least a version of this will) be used to power the byte_randarp++ as shown in the picture in my previous post. Also, the more observant of you may have noticed the funny symbols in that picture. It’s a code that I’m developing. More on that in the future!
You can get it from here.
Welcome to my site/blog/portfolio/writing-place…thingy.
This is basically where I’m gonna put all of my hardware and software creations, as well as the odd story. It’s not gonna be a great big blog which’ll be super-amazing or updated frequently with super interesting content, but it’ll have a nice little idea or musing every once in a while.
Most of the stuff I post will probably involve Pure Data, Arduino or something like that. I’m very open to ideas for making little bits of software/hardware for open source. ANYTHING on this blog is under CC-Attribution-ShareAlike, because I really like Creative Commons. So yeah. If you want to contact me, do so through my Twitter (@terrabyte_aura).
Anyway, enjoy this site (or whatever it is)! And the photo is a preview of WHAT IS YET TO COME.
