Farfisa Tuning

The main goal of this project is to change the shape and aspect of an old and heavy Farfisa keyboard. The orignial shell was made by classic wood, and the whole piece was quite heavy.

The new design makes the piece smaller and it is made by methacrylate, what make it tranparent. A LED Strip was added to the developed shell. This strip is controlled by an Arduino Leonardo board, using the Pololu library.

A control panel was also added to the final piece. This panel allows the user to chose between different lighting programs. It also includes a potentiometer to modulate rhythms and intensities inside each program.
