Pythagotron

PythagotronPythagoras of Samos was a man with many hobbys. I know him primarily for his experiments with strings and their musical properties. Thats why I call this robotic string¬†instrument “Pythagotron”.

It features:

  • 2 octaves of pitch range
  • fast and precise intonation
  • 4 actuators for striking, muting, punshing, damping and shorten the string
  • modular and parametric design (OpenScad)
  • most parts are 3D-printed or easy to gather
  • open source

An introduction to MuVisu

In this video I describe the current version of MuVisu, a program I’ve made to help learning musical instruments. It is insprired by interactive music games like Guitar Hero, Rock Band or Rocksmith. It’s focused on an universal approach of high customizabillity to make it usable for a wide scope of musical instruments as well as different learning-settings and -goals.

The project is hosted here: https://github.com/fpiesik/MuviTools/

 

Printed E-Drum Trigger Pad No.1

A well functional e-drum trigger pad. Most parts are 3d-printed. It’s still work in progress but I’m very happy with the results so far. You can watch the progress on thingiverse and for most recent changes look on my git repository.
