I’ve heard of the DrumKid a while ago and kind of dismissed it as yet another lo-fi drum toy. But I just realized that it uses an Arduino Nano and only very few parts around that. It’s open source too and seems well documented, so an AE Modular version in a module form wouldn’t be hard to DIY.
I contacted him for the possibility of licensing for an AE module... Couldn't resist...
Awesome! Hope this works out! To keep things simpler, one could then maybe split the firmware into two versions. One for the sequencer and one for the drums/synth. Both could run on the same module hardware, so with two modules in the rack, one would have a more or less full DrumKid, but with more modulation possibilities.
I got mine since Friday. So for I really like it. The sequencer is nice and changes from the knobs tweaking ones (euclidean or grids). Hopefully, an Ae version with see light with CV controllable parameter. So far the only limitation is that I can only access 4 parameter per page. I think I'll be using it as master clock with the Ae modular since there is a play/stop (tried already and worked perfectly!). Since it's hack-able for CV connection I should try to see a bit more for possibilities...
Will do a proper video with the Ae modular since now I finally got the roland mixer go pro to record straight into the phone.
Definitely a nice sequencer which could be its own Ae module. So groovy and changing with only a few turn of a button. Here I was just trying to get generative sequence from only the drum triggers. I'd say the midihub is a game changer! Definitely will had the AE into this equation!
