Simple Super Awesome Arduino

Sylvia poses with an Arduino MicrocontrollerHey guys! After almost 2 months of waiting, my new favorite episode of Sylvia's Super Awesome Maker Show is here! Super Simple Arduino!

I show you how to build two super simple projects for Arduino with code I helped write! A Super Simple Strobe for looking at things in slow motion, and the Randomly Influenced Finger Flute (or, the RIFF). And with the help of our electronic puppet friends, we explore how the Arduino does some of it's magic. It was a blast to make and I hope you have a blast watching it. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for watching!

Super Simple RIFF musical instrument for Arduino

Submitted by TechNinja on August 30, 2010 - 11:01pm

Welcome to the official project page for Super Awesome Sylvia's RIFF for Arduino. If you haven't, be sure and check out the official blog post and video for this project here!

The learning version of the code for the RIFF can be downloaded directly in it's raw format from github here:

Get the code!
(paste this directly into the Arduino IDE)

Otherwise, the top level repos for the project in both a Learning version, and a Super Awesome version can be found here:

Fritzing view of the Randomly Influenced Finger Flute.

The Randomly Influenced Finger Flute, or R.I.F.F. is a super simple arpeggio musical instrument, played by touching the exposed solder contacts for analog pin 0 and 5v/ground on the Arduino. It only requires an Arduino and a speaker, so there's no reason not to give it a try! And if you're feeling adventurous, fork the code on github and add your own features!

Be sure and check out a far cooler musical project,'s Soft-synth: Auduino.
