We wanted to create a new and easy way to compose music. All three of us love music, and especially playing drums. It's really hard to keep track of an improvised drum solo without recording it and analyzing the beat. We figured out a way to keep track of the player's speed and rhythm of an improvised drum solo by playing virtual drum strokes in the air with Myo armbands.
What it does
We used two Myo armbands to compose music by playing the rhythm of a virtual snare-drum and a hi-hat in the air, while our web application simultaneously generates the music sheet. Name of the music, name of the composer can all be manually inputted and the whole music sheet can be downloaded as png.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
At the end, we managed to make a web application that can compose the drum music sheet as the player plays the virtual snare drum and the hi-hat.
What I learned
What's next for Myo Rhythm Composer (Drum Kit Edition)
Making the UI even more visually immersive and engaging with various tempo and instrument selections.
