Eine Kleine Eingebettete Musik (A Little Embedded Music): Replicating 12th Century Musical Instruments Using Embedded Linux - Elizabeth Flanagan, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will discuss the design, development, and construction of a
fully solid state replica of one of the engineering marvels of the
Rennesance area, the vielle à roue (hurdy gurdy); a crank powered, continuous
bow, multistring, keyed viol type instrument.

We'll discuss the embedded systems needs of electronic musical instruments,
including creating the real time operating system that runs it and the
code base. We will step through some clever hardware hacks we used to
keep down coast and strategies in how to create an instrument that
feels and sounds similar to the acoustic version of an instrument.

Lastly, we'll show some improvements we made, such as up and down sampling
of sounds to provide all the string audio, on the fly tuning, remote string
cutoffs
