Ive always imagined that since transistor amplifiers were “perfect” with their large amounts of negative feedback, great linearity, and low THD that […]
MIDI controller keyboards are great because they let you control any synthesizer you plug them into. The only downside: you need a synthesizer to turn MIDI notes into actual sounds, slightly complicating some summer night campfire serenading. Not for [Geordie] though, who decided to build the nanoPi, a portable, MIDI instrument housing a Raspberry Pi. Using a

In this project we will use the Adafruit Starter Pack for Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2 components to make a speaking light sensor. This will show how to use an MCP3008 Analog Digital Converter (ADC) chip to interface the Pi2 to three analog components. Two variable resistors (potentiometers) and one CdS photocell.
