5. Keyboard Instrument

In this tutorial video, Massimo Banzi explores the possibility of making musical sounds with the Arduino Starter Kit.

To do this, Banzi has created simple circuit on the Arduino board, which is then completed with four buttons and a mini piezo speaker. But to make the device resemble a mini keyboard, Banzi has programmed each button to play a different note.

Banzi then uses the Arduino software define different frequencies for each note within the code. But don’t worry if this sounds rather complicated, as he goes through the code line-by-line to show us exactly how to make a mini-keyboard. So to start making music, make sure that you watch the latest video.
