LE STRUM – MIDI Strummed Chord Controller Kit

June 18, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

If you could breed an Omnichord with a Stylophone you might end up with some of these babies….

Use combinations of the buttons to select a chord type (maj, min, 7, maj7, min7, dim, aug) and root note. The chord is then mapped across the pads, which you play with a wired stylus, sending output by MIDI.

This is an old idea of mine that I’ve now turned into an open hardware kit, so anyone can make one. The updated firmware has some new goodies like guitar open chord fingerings, chord variations (sus4, add6, add9), two channel lead + chord drone and control over velocity.

Kit is available for purchase on Tindie at https://www.tindie.com/products/hotch… and the firmware/hardware source code is on GitHub at https://github.com/hotchk155/Voici-Le…
