What inspired you to do this?
When I first started learning about Arduino and micro controllers, my main interest was how they could be used as MIDI controllers. One of the first projects I saw was someone who had made MIDI drum pads out of Pringles cans and it was something I always wanted to try.
How long did it take to make it?
Putting together the actual Pringles cans with the piezo sensors and LED lights took a solid Saturday afternoon.
How long have you been doing things like this?
Ive been playing around with Arduinos for about 5 years now, but only started using them for MIDI controllers for about 2 years now.
How much did this cost to do?
The MKRZero arduino board was about $25. The hardware (wires, piezo sensors, LEDS) prob was around $7. The cans of Pringles were $1 each.
Have you done other things like this?
I have made other arduino MIDI controllers linked to SOnic Pi. Check out my youtube channel to see them and other projects: http://www.youtube.com/mrbombmusic
What did you wish you knew before you started this?
That the MKRZero board makes MIDI communication much easier than using an Uno board.
Are there plans available to make this? Do you sell this?
I posted about this project on a Sonic Pi forum: https://in-thread.sonic-pi.net/t/pringles-can-drums-w-arduino/4341
Heres the original post I saw on Instructables that inspired me (Although mine is made much differently) : https://www.instructables.com/Pringle-Can-MIDI-Drums/
I would like to add more cans.
