pedalSHIELD UNO is an open-source Arduino UNO programmable guitar pedal.
The idea is to build a guitar pedal with easy-to-find parts and have fan creating your own sounds from the first day without deep knowledge in DSP programming or electronics.
Everybody can share their ideas or codes in the forum where you can also download the already coded effects (booster, distortion, fuzz, delay, vibrato, tremolo, wave-generator, metronome, etc).
We created some documents so you can do the project easily:
It is an economic platform to start developing your interest in effects, audio electronics, guitar pedals or digital signal processing.
The whole project is Open-Source and Open-Hardware, all the schematics and files are free. The design was also created using KiCAD, an open source ECAD for Win-Linux-Mac so everybody can contribute.
