Free Oreilly workshop – Processing and Arduino in Tandem: Build a Mixer

Posted on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011 in Arduino, demonstrations, News, Processing by the machinegeek

Oreilly is offering a special follow-up to their earlier Processing and Arduino course. “Processing and Arduino in Tandem: Build a Mixer” will be presented free online by Instructor Joseph Gray on two successive Fridays. The course makes use of the projBox, a control box with installed potentiometers, switches and LEDs, which interfaces with the Arduino board and your computer. The box can be easily constructed or purchased from Oreilly.

The first 120 minute session will create a video mixing application from scratch with Processing, the Arduino board, and the projBox Kit. The finished application will let you load video files and live camera input, crossfade between video sources, and display the mix in real time. You’ll also integrate effects, like color adjustment and playback speed. With the projBox, you’ll integrate custom hardware to control your application.

The second session on March 11, 2011 will focus on building an audio visualization tool which will animate graphics on screen that respond to live audio input. The app will listen to external audio from a built-in computer microphone or audio input jack, and analyze that audio to display audio waveforms in real time. The projBox hardware will give you manual control of the audio visualization.
