Making Embedded Instruments with Bela

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This hands-on workshop introduces Bela (http://bela.io), an embedded platform for ultra-low latency audio and sensor processing. Bela is useful for creating digital musical instruments and other interactive projects, which can be developed in C/C++, Pure Data (Pd) or Supercollider, amongst other languages. The platform features an on-board browser-based IDE and oscilloscope for getting started quickly, onboard examples and documentation, and online community resources.  

This workshop will focus on creating interactive music projects using Pd. Participants will be guided through a series of circuit-building and Pd programming activities, followed by time for open experimentation. Bela kits, breadboards, sensors and other electronics will be provided for use during the workshop. Participants should bring their own laptop (any platform) and a pair of headphones.

Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops (Windows, Mac, Linux, ChromeOS) and a pair of headphones.
