Arduino enthusiast Duane at the rcarduino site is working on a variety of tutorials concerning sound effects created with an Arduino board. In this instalment, he discusses the delay effect. In his words
This works by recording the output as it is being generated and then mixing this sound back in with itself – after a delay. The result should be familiar to anyone who has every played an electric guitar through an amp with reverb. In the case of the Auduino synthesizer the result is a mild echo effect and slightly smoother, more metallic sound – the effect can be turned on or off through a push button
Doing so is quite simple, and demonstrated in the following video:
To get started with your own effects, follow the tutorial from here. And for more, we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
