This arduino based module works thanks to a clever library : Talkie from https://github.com/going-digital/Talkie
I have already used this library to build a Talking clock
It is so simple to use that building a sound module requires only 5 pots and a button to get going.
For the moment I have added 4 modes or sound banks :
- voltmeter (reading the CV voltage)
- frequencemeter (fake mode just saying “Hertz” instead of “Volts”)
- nato alphabet
I plan to add a 5th mode with a large vocabulary and a 6th mode with weird sounds
CV signal change the words or phrase to be said
Pressing the button start the complete sound in trigger mode. (regardless of it’s length)
If the trigger switch is off, the gate will start the sound and hold it as long as the gate level stays up. Very useful to create crazy rhythms.
If the cable is plugged in, the gate is triggered via an external signal
Choose between trigger mode or gated mode
If bend is on, the bend pot … distords the sound.
Change the speed
Change the pitch
First test of the differents functions. Manual gate via a button
Looping a sequence in Ableton Live to trigger gate & cv while I play with the mode /speed /pitch / bend knobs
I am now working on a PCB and a panel.
I will upload these details and the schematics in a next post.
