Bluetooth and WiFi connection testing
First Successful test where the Qualcomm board interfaced with the MIDI controller. Was actively not connected to a PC or external power src
Successful hardware mount terminal read out
Judging presentation setup
My inspiration for working on this project can be attributed to a variety of factors. The biggest being that the final release of this project (scheduled for Dec. 7) will hopefully involve me emulating Google's Chrome Web Lab experiment: Orchestra. I proposed this project very recently to my professor, Victor Pons, an electronics performer and my instructor within Georgia State University's School of Music. I ultimately aspire to learn how to emulate Google's experiment at a smaller scale. Then I seek to explore utilizing collaborative technology to provide new innovative solutions that will attempt to tackle the average struggles of the everyday musician trying to practice and collaborate with other performers/producers/etc.
What it does
So far I extensively researched and compiled as many credible sources for learning about applications in embedded systems, and methods for analyzing audio on the web.
How I built it
I connected a 5 inch HDMI display to the SnapDragon board. Then I plugged in my Akai Professional MPK mini MIDI controller into the dragon board's USB port.
Challenges I ran into
One of the biggest challenges I ran into was with the hardware itself. I ended up reflashing the board closely after checkout. They were some personal quirks
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Successfully connected a non internet device, AKAI MPK mini, to an internet enabled device, Dragon Board 410c, and from there I was able to establish a fairly good bluetooth connection between my laptop and my midi controller
What I learned
I learned more about the existing frameworks and APIs that exist on the web for audio manipulation
What's next for Musox
I personally come from both an Engineers and a Musicians background. I 100% feel like I have truly revitalized my joy for messing around with new hardwares and really getting my feet wet. During my high school career, my team qualified for VEX Worlds Championships annually. Within my Junior and Senior year we made great successes winning regional tournaments, placing 1st in the state of Georgia, 1st place Worlds Championship Divisional play, 3rd and 56th team overall world rankings. Following that I am also a devoted Musican, and I plan to use my passions and diverse skillsets to forge a unique career path for myself. I plan to return to GSU on Monday and begin to hopefully integrate more advanced components into my research project on electronic performance.
