OP-1 LEGO SONG and the LEGO beat sequencer

October 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A little song made possible by the new Brick Shaft accessories!

SoundMachine is a 4 track 8-step drum sequencer that uses the LEGO Mindstorms NXT to scan a set of drum “notes” which are then played using Ableton Live. The NXT uses four colour sensors to detect the colour of 2×2 LEGO bricks as the plate is scanned in. A controller written in Processing interprets the colour pattern and sequences MIDI note messages to send to Ableton Live, which in turn plays the sounds you hear.

The music on the video was created by SoundMachine itself – music you can build!
