OpenPipe Breakout v2

We are happy to announce today a new OpenPipe Breakout version, with some improvements made on the last few months based on the feedback sent by several OpenPipers. The OpenPipe Breakout is now more robust, much easier to connect and play and better looking. The newly added improvements are: Better finger sensors: we changed from screws to aluminium Read More


OpenPipe Breakout & Audio Codec Shield

In the previous post we talked about generating bagpipes sounds using WaveTable Synthesis with Arduino (44KHz @ 8bit) and PWM. The result is good but we can increase sound quality a bit more using an Arduino Shield for audio generation like the one from OpenMusicLabs. The Audio Codec Shield is an Arduino shield that uses the Wolfson WM8731 codec, Read More


Openpipe Breakout meets eChanter

In this post we will explain how to generate high quality sound with Arduino using wavetable synthesis, with bagpipes in mind, of course!!! The code used here is based in the eChanter, a DIY electronic bagpipes project built around Arduino. Thanks eChanter for the inspiration. We added some cool features in order to let people create Read More
