It is a synthesizer, a random sequencer, and a proximity sensor

How To Make It

STEP 1 :

D249bf6c 6a49 404f b8a4 211191284472

First, start wit two power pieces with batteries. Put the pieces on the mounting boards as you build.

STEP 2 :

D552d078 167b 447f b04f 5ae9828b773b

Next, add the Makey Makey bit.

STEP 3 :

Fb66e350 186d 4a71 afea 246f15c12d18

Connect an alligator clip to the earth port in the Makey Makey. Then, attach the other side to tinfoil.

STEP 4 :

63426b13 c12a 4c7b aeee 7e89b71d9cbd

Attach wires to three smaller pieces of tinfoil and attach them to the left arrow, space/click, and the right arrow ports.

STEP 5 :

273dc166 52c2 4954 ae4f 6004a4767265

Attach the keyboard to the right arrow port.

STEP 6 :

4ba2ff78 9689 490d 8e50 2031c13812f1

Add an oscillator after the keyboard.

STEP 7 :

8ff631c9 ea3c 40b5 b743 9fe8a2515118

And then the envelope after the oscillator

STEP 8 :

958305dc 5ddb 4b85 95d0 fd8c18241d25

The filter comes after the envelope

STEP 9 :

3fdf07d8 cf2b 413c b5d8 eb61ecfd501d

And the delay goes after the filter

STEP 10 :

104954c3 ab24 4fff b0e3 11db0597ebb8

Attach one of the mix wires to this synthesizer circuit.

STEP 11 :

B643e241 c648 426b aee9 e493c21e81d3

And then add the speaker after the mix bit.

STEP 12 :

580714cc 2f82 4eeb 903c 75116838f26d

Attach the proximity sensor to space/click on the Makey Makey.

STEP 13 :

253e4052 b0f1 4e0f 802e e560b4bb570b

And then add the baragraph after that.

STEP 14 :

6a8eefb7 8809 4e89 88d4 9dc802a67d86

To complete this part, add the buzzer after the baragraph.

STEP 15 :

7c89214e c460 4c92 85f1 dc46763f9afc

Next, add the micro sequencer in the left arrow snap on the Makey Makey

STEP 16 :

24b78d3b c462 4c10 86bf faaee1826686

The random bit goes after that...

STEP 17 :

613d066a a70b 4a7f a40e 544635856fa9

...and then another oscillator.

STEP 18 :

A232bded 6168 42bc b9bb 16571f3d472d

Add the remaining mix wire to the oscillator.

STEP 19 :

154e995c 553e 411c b25e 687416c7bee0

Finally, add the alligator clips to the ports of the Makey Makey and the smaller pieces of tinfoil

STEP 20 :

C16303db d838 42af a1c5 a705884b7eb6

Turn both power bits on. Turning one on will make the other light up, but make sure both are on. This project can also be done with one power bit, but I recommend 2.

STEP 21 :

4aa22a33 3c96 4f67 94cb aa1ff6f33b6e

Touch the smaller pieces of tinfoil to the larger ones to activate different functions.
