Project by John; Playing Synthesizers with a Teensy Controlled Game on a LaunchPad

I’ve just shared a new project: "Playing Synthesizers with a Teensy Controlled Game on a LaunchPad"



I am an amateur musician, coder, and electronics maker. When I found out that the Novation Launchpad (mine is a mini MK3) can be programmed, I was excited about creating unique music. The idea is to use the Launchpad to play a game and use the game to generate notes for the synthesisers to play. In this version, you can play Naughts and Crosses (Tic Tac Toe). The Teensy sends a predetermined sequence and altered notes, which vary as you play the game, to the synths.

Hi John,

Awesome project, it’s been amazing seeing your updates on the forum! In my mind the Launchpad has become synonymous with your projects integrating a fun aspect such as a game or another visual representation and then letting us hear all of it - and your name!
