BuildBrighton: Brighton's Hackspace
What is BuildBrighton?
We are a not-for-profit community and all subscriptions go towards paying for the space and providing equipment, amenities and assets for the group.
As a non-profit organisation, you can donate to the group. This money will be spent on equipping the space with tools and machinery that will be useful and available to the group as a whole.
BuildBrighton is largely funded by a monthly subscription by its core members.
You can subscribe to BuildBrighton for £20 a month (concessions available), or pay a drop in fee of £5 each time you visit. More information about subscription can be found on our subscription page.
What do you get?
- Entry to all Thursday night hack events at The Skiff.
- Access to the workshop 7 days a week.
- Warm fuzzy feeling, as all your subscriptions will go towards paying for the space and providing equipment, amenities and assets for the group.
What's going on now?
Ultrasonic sensors are used to return a distance value, from the sensor to the player's hand. This value is converted by an Arduino or other microcontroller into a MIDI key value and is output at the correct baud rate (31,250 bps) onto a serial pin. Since MIDI needs a signal to turn off a key pitch as well as a signal to turn it on, two MIDI signals are sent - one to turn off the previous note and one to activate the required note.
