Metronome_DIY_2

There is another project which closes the distance to the target line:

The DIY-Metronome

I started this more than a year ago and after programming this on a PIC development board while at the same time I was asking what people want out of such a project here http://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=12399.0

PIC-Devboard

 

So, after a lot of failed programming efforts, I mananged to output a nice drum sample via the PIC. This made me think about how to implement all the features requested.

The various requirements specified by the community were:

  • up to 350 bpm
  • Ability to control the level of each instrument via a separate control
  • big display
  • save and retrieve settings
  • ability to mix in the guitar signal and an external source

 

I took it to the next level and created a new PCB to test aout if it can be done:

Metronome_DIY_1

 

 

and it works nicely so far.

Currently working on getting a display connected.

    Nice! Want you to commercialize it? I wish that there’s pcb print, parts and scheme for this project. Is that possible?
    Cheers
