DIY Controller Sequencer

I like music and always wanted my own MIDI controller. I decided I'd try to build it myself, powered by an old electric organ keyboard and an Arduino.

But just a controller was not enough: I tried to program a comfortable sequencer built around playing the keyboard live. The controls are kind of clunky but it was very fun playing while it lasted!

This was one of my first programming projects, and it taught me bit-packing, multiplexing and soldering. This was originally meant to be a CV keyboard but I never got my hands on any modular synth gear so I had to settle with MIDI.
