Arduino Midi Coffee Can Drumkit

arduino on breadboard

I am going to attempt to create an electronic drum kit with an Arduino and some coffee cans!  Based on the Knock Sensor circuit and the code for Drum Kit Kit I think I’ll be able to do it…  I will post updates as they happen. – info and links for the software portion that runs on your Mac – shows diagram of circuit with resistor and xener diode so you don’t blow out your Arduino – shows construction of pads and everything, with links to Serial Midi software, and most importantly an Arduino Sketch
