Inspiration

Garnet and Payton wanted to jam together, but the dorms are tiny. This means you can't use a full drum set, and drum triggers are mad expensive.

What it does

Uses Peizo Transducers as pads to play on. The arduino picks that up, sends serial to a computer that has a python script listening. Then the python connects to a virtual MIDI cable to play send MIDI notes to a DAW like reaper

How I built it

Magic

Challenges I ran into

Computers are slow Python is slow Serial is slow(kinda) Drum VSTs are kinda laggy

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It works pretty well. It's volume sensitive and picks up pretty much every note, but doesn't repeat any

What I learned

It's pretty laggy to go from one device using 1 programming language to another device running a different language and then send signals over to a daw
