What is it?
T. Chordstrum is a pocket size USB MIDI chord strummer, to be played similarly to an autoharp or omnichord. It is made as a kit for assembly and pairing with a PJRC Teensy microcontroller board that is not included in the kit, and must be bought separately. The kit can be put together in two different ways, either with a Teensy LC for brains giving it USB MIDI capability only, or with a Teensy 3.2 giving it built in audio through a 3.5mm line level jack (in addition to the USB MIDI).
The strumming area consists of eight touch pads (or “strings”) that play notes of the chord selected.
The chord to be played is selected using the buttons of the chord keyboard. The keyboard is setup in Circle of Fifths order, putting chords most frequently used together next to eachother. The top row selects Major chord, mid row selects minor chord and bottom row selects 7th chord. You can use combinations of these to select other chords.
Included in the kit
Colour of items may vary to keep boredom away. The sets will always be good looking, though :) (Message me if you have some specific wishes and I'll see what I can do. Like, if you want the PCB and/or rubber sheet in a certain colour, or the switches to be extra tall.)
*) These parts and the “set” tact switch can be left out if building the more simple Teensy LC version of the Cordstrum.
