Moduled Nano

MIDI controlled modular LED synthesizer (8 hp). Setup LED animations using MIDI data on your modular rack.

DIY

Hardware

What you need

Case

I designed the case using Blender 3D rendering software and exported an stl file and printed the case using Lulzbot TAZ 6 3D printer. The .blend and stl file for the case can be found here.

Software

moduled_nano.ino

Moduled Nano Arduino script.

Setting up custom LED animations

Using this online LED matrix editor you can setup a sequence of images to be added as an animation.
