Story

The Step Sequencer shield is the first project made by Artis Lab in the spring 2016. The board is an expansion for Arduino Uno that realizes a six-stage step sequencer producing 8-bit tone sequences.

This small device has been specially created to be used inside Oracolo a sound object by Costantino Rizzuti.

Oracolo

The code to program the step sequencer is available in our tutorial: How to program a step sequencer with Arduino.

Here our project's main page
