190630 - Multi-Touchpad Playing Synth !

I was able to generate sounds by touching / tapping / pressing each one of the touchpads.

Video 1: Each touchpad playing a different sample.

Video 2: all touchpads playing same synth sample.

Video 3-4: top 3 touchpads playing synth.

Video 5: 1st touchpad playing synth

View images below to see how the Paper Touchpad was made.

Tools: Arduino & openFrameworks


Challenge: Drum sounds created noise whereas the synth wav worked beautifully.

Fixed ! with an ‘if’ statement in openFrameworks, saying that ‘if the value is smaller then the current threshold && bigger then the previous && the current file is loaded, do not play !
