I made an example instrument for our workshop on making musical instruments with Scratch+micro:bit. It’s an electric bass that is totally going to shred at the next Battle of the Bands.
You know it rocks when your 11 & 13yo poke their heads in to find out what I made!
Here’s a screenshot of the very simple program I wrote:
This was super quick to make! The physical part took the longest, both making sure I had my circuits set up so that it was an enjoyable instrument to play, and also making sure my new-ish computer was able to talk to my micro:bit. That second part took a few tries, and admittedly I was a tiny bit impatient and did the steps out of order which meant they didn’t work right. If you are coming to the workshop next week and don’t already have your micro:bit set up to communicate with Scratch, definitely do the steps in the exact order described on this Scratch page: Scratch - micro:bit
