My brother and I created a midi synthetiser called the Pianographe. We took a Nektar 49 master keyboard that we disassembled, and build a wooden frame with potentiometers and faders linked to an Arduino unit. The Arduino was connected to Ableton Live as a midi controller, and Ableton live sent midi informations to Resolume Arena (a vjing software) . A videoprojector sends 1 graphic for each note, so the public can play sounds and pictures simultaneous.The front dashboard of the keyboard contains
- 1 potentiometer for the general tempo
- 1 linear fader for the choice of the sound / graphic family.
- 4 faders to change the volume of the rhythms
- 4 faders (at 45°) for send effects (reverb / delay / tremolo) and general Eq.
