After a little Arduino coding, I have both drumsticks drumming at the same time (success)! This is after:
- Burned up an actuator
- Sent 2 more actuators to electronic heaven
Ultimately, I will add new Arduino code which alters the beat and which drum stick hits. Other than "beautifying" it, this project is complete! I'll just add a few kitchen pans and extra drumsticks which an observer can walk up to and start jamming with the electronic drummer! Analog meet Digital! Oh, I forgot to mention the use of a potentiometer to change to different drum beats. When I have time, I'll get that coded. This bare-bones rhythm is just for testing that both sticks work. I'll be coding some better ones.
