SOLENOID RHYTHM MACHINE
The SOLENOID RHYTHM MACHINE is a mechanical drum machine that can be played using MIDI notes. 5 push solenoids are controlled by an arduino microprocessor by means of transistor circuits using TIP122 transitors. This drum machine responds in real-time to any MIDI input. It combines the beauty of acoustic sounds with computer-controlled timing precision.
