Four buttons trigger four samples that are pressed in accordance with a 16-step sequencer running at a controllable BPM/tempo. Project is enclosed in the cardboard 'Arcade' kit that the components and sensors came with. Similar to games like Simon or Dance Dance Revolution.

How does it work?

Four large arcade buttons and NeoTrellis 4x4 are routed to the Daisy Seed. Each button plays a different drum sample via PD patch. PD patch tells Trellis to light the 16 led buttons on Trellis in sequential movement from left to right to signify BPM/tempo, as well the points in sequence for the participant to press the corresponding sample buttons along to the beat.
