Hardware Hacking a new musical instrument with an Arduino and an Electric Guitar
How do you create a new type of musical instrument using the right sensors, arduinos and some clever ergonomic engineering?
I invented a way to play bass and guitar, at the same time,
using the same 4 fingers and thumb you normally use to play guitar,
on a regular old electric guitar.
(with a bunch of software and hardware and sensors)
Learn about analog to digital sampling, physical computing, MIDI, arduino, physical design, prototyping and more!
I will talk about the design issues, coding challenges, going from idea to POC to prototype to pilot.

boards for the POC (too big to actually fit in the pedal)
POC that will evolve into the Prototype of the pedal (the tiny blue board is a Arduino Nano that will be the brains of the pedal.
