littleBits Sequence Recorder


 This project will repeat the sequence that you tap into
  the morse button and then play your sequence back on
  the output bits!  It will loop until you press the record
  mode button again.
  
  Instructions on how to use it:
  Go into record mode by pressing the button on the d0
  input.  While pressing the record button or switch, 
  press sequences on the morse button on a0.
  Let go the record button to play back your sequence!
  Press the record button once to stop playback.

  Rotate the dimmer counter clockwise to speed up the 
  your playback, rotate the dimmer clockwise to slow the
  playback down. 
 
Have fun with different littleBits on the output!

How To Make It

1

Snap the power bit p1 to a fork.

2

Snap a button on d0 of the arduino bit on the left side.

3

Snap a button on a0 of the arduino bit on the left side.

4

Snap a dimmer on a1 of the arduino bit on the left side.

5

Snap a bright led on d1 of the arduino bit on the right side.

6

Snap a rgbled on d5 of the arduino bit  on the right side.

7

Snap a bright led on d9 pin of the arduino bit on the right side.

Or Snap a servo onto the d9 pin. 

8

Snap a filter frequency input to the rgbled bit output.

9

Snap a synth speaker bit onto the output of the filter bit.

10

Download and installed the Ardunio IDE from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software to your computer.
Use the Arduino 1.0.5 version for your computers operating system.

Go to the Getting Started guide for more information http://discuss.littlebits.cc/t/getting-started/109

11

Download and same the sequence_recorder_advanced.ino sketch to your computer.  Attach the micro usb cable to the ardunio bit.  Turn on the powerbit.  Set your Arduino IDE to "Arduino Leonardo" and select Serial port /dev/tty.usbmodem1411.   Next upload the sequence_recorder_advanced.ino to the littleBit Arduino. 

12

Go into record mode by pressing the button on the d0 input. While pressing the record button or switch, press sequences on the morse button on a0. Let go the record button to play back your sequence! Press the record button once to stop playback.

Use the dimmer bit to change the speed of the playback, set it to the middle for normal playback.

Have fun with changing the positions of the filter bit, to make all   kinds of sounds from drum to chirping!.  
  
Add a random bit on the d5 output before the synth speaker and listen to what you can create!
