Arduino MIDI Mux Step Sequencer – Part 2

By way of completing this initial look at multiplexing potentiometers, this is how I used a Sparkfun 16 port multiplexer in my Arduino MIDI Step Sequencer. https://youtu.be/MiPyJrPlmVs Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI experiments.  I am not responsible for any damage to expensive instruments! These are the key Arduino … Continue reading Arduino MIDI Mux Step Sequencer – Part 2

MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter – Part 3

My plan was always to try to use my MCP4725 board with Mozzi eventually, but there is one thing I came to realize that has stopped that ambition.  You can't talk I2C from an interrupt routine using the standard Arduino Wire libraries.  Mozzi uses an interrupt routine to output the audio samples at the required … Continue reading MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter – Part 3

MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter – Part 2

This is a short post showing some of the steps to take the dividing/filter circuit from the MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter to stripboard or protoboard. If you know how to solder, this is fairly straightforward. If you are not sure, find a good tutorial and then come back and have a go. Recall, both … Continue reading MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter – Part 2

MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter

After my experiments with Mozzi, one thing I wanted to try was using a dedicated digital to analog converter (DAC), which is something the common Arduinos lack. After some searching I found the MCP4725 which links up to the Arduino using the I2C bus.  From the datasheet: "The MCP4725 is a low-power, high accuracy, single … Continue reading MCP4725 Digital to Analog Converter
