Armstrong - Music with the Arduino

No shields required!

Generating music from an Arduino usually needs a shield. And shields cost money. This talk introduces a project that makes it free and easy to play sound without a shield, nor a knowledge of musical theory.

We shall introduce a number of projects that make the Arduino make noises, other than the squeaks of the example code. This includes the new library, Armstrong, which supports various methods of playing music, along with MIDI functionality, all from a vanilla Arduino.
