This is my first ever hack so I just want to make something that sounds fun to me. I really like the physics and mechanism of digital audio so I decided to learn more about it in this BrickHack
What it does
It mimics the sounds of an particular musical instrument, in this case, guitar.
How I built it
I followed the instruction and many other videos. Instruction can be found here: https://www.cis.upenn.edu/~cis110/13sp/hw/hw07/guitar.shtml
Challenges I ran into
I don't know anything about Java before, so the biggest problem for me is figuring out how the code will work. In addition, the mechanism of digital audio (using Karplus-Strong algorithm) is hard for me at first.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
In the end, I make it works! Moreover, I have met and talked to amazing people and eat good food here at Brickhack!
What I learned
I learned Java from scratch and digital audio theory!
What's next for Guitar Hero
I will advance this project by modifying the algorithm to make it replicate other instruments such as harp, drum, piano. Also, I want it can play the whole song from users input (right now it just can play when user hits a key)
