Ultrasonic Hackduino Pedal

NOTE**** New date: Saturday November 5th

Learn to hack an analog guitar pedal and control its effects with an Arduino microcontroller and ultrasonic sensor. You are going to do a bit of everything with this tutorial; soldering, circuitry and coding. Once finished, you’ll be able to augment anything from musical instruments to MP3s into new expressive sounds.

Opening up a guitar pedal and modifying its circuitry is pretty easy, but interfacing it with an Arduino and ultrasonic sensor takes a little knowledge of Arduino code. We will be using the HC SR04 ultrasonic sensor that is commonly used for object avoidance in robotics projects, but we will be using it as an invisible control knob to crank up our effects pedal. While an effects pedal is traditionally used for electric guitars, any type of sound can be fed through its mono input. Feel free to bring along one of your own sound projects and see how the pedal affects it.
