MIDI sequencer/controller


Reader, [Lennon Luks] made a really slick  MIDI sequencer/controller for his senior design project while studying at Western Carolina University. It has a grid of 64 LED buttons, 8 knobs, and a display with navigation buttons that allow him to sequence tracks with or without a computer. The controller is based off an ATmega644 and is programmed in C. [Lennon] clearly explains the inner workings of the project in detail on his website and has included a good number of pictures. [Lennon] made a nice video of the project which can be seen after the jump.

    That is beautifully done. It’s clear a lot of work went into that, and the result looks like it was well worth it.

    Great project. Nice sound.

    My favorite part was the “not a sample” at 7:42-7:50

    After the jump!?

    I was getting sick of reading “after the break”, but now that’s worse. How about “after the lolcats” instead?

    that thing is badass! I’ve been thinking abut making something like this for awhile now (though my plans didn’t have a knob to change the pitch of mikel jackson’s voice). Nicely done!
