About this project

Circuit benders, DIY, and experimental musicians in particular will find this of interest. I have been designing and building various sequencers to control circuit bent toys and instruments for the past several years. Now I want to take my current modular random music sequencer to the next level, and make it more affordable to a wider audience.

To get to the next level I need to change microcontrollers to be able to add new functionality. This platform shift will be to a less expensive per chip microcontroller. New development tools and equipment are needed to make this migration.

A majority of the kit and full sequencer funding will go back into the cost of the rewards. I am taking this approach to share the sequencer. I have set my goal at its level to insure that there will be funds both for the programming and development equipment I need as well as for material costs of the rewards.

If the short demonstration in the video above is not enough you can see more videos or listen to mp3s on my website.
A post detailing how my current sequencer works can be found on the circuit bending website getlofi.com.

I have also made a light circuit to work with the sequencer for light shows synced to the sounds.
Here is a video of it in action on youtube.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project.
