Walabot FX - Guitar Effect Control

Prints (1)



What would it be like to control musical expression using nothing but the position of your guitar in 3D space? Well, let's prototype something and find out!

The Basic Idea

I wanted to be able to control 3 effect parameter in real time, I wanted to do this using how I positioned my guitar. So one thing was clear, I was going to need a few things.

  • A sensor that is able to see 3D space
  • Servos to turn the knobs
  • An LCD display
  • An I2C Servo driver
  • A Raspberry Pi
  • To learn Python
