Bleep Drum Hacking Guide
This guide also applies to the Dam Drum 2.0.
Here is a guide to getting your own samples into the Bleep Drum.
The pads on the left side are for future expandability and hacking.
To reprogram the device, use a Arduino Duemilanove or UNO with the chip removed. Connect thr RX, TX, reset and ground pins between the Bleep Drum and Arduino board. Now you can upload directly to the device from the Arduino IDE.
1 – Ground
2 – Trigger output (high pulse every 1/8th)
3 – +5V
4 – Trigger yellow
5 – Trigger input (low pulse advances 1/8th)
6 – Trigger blue
7 – Trigger red
8 – Trigger green
9 – TX
10 – RX
11 – +9V (Straight from battery)
12 – Reset
When a low pulse is sent to one of the trigger color buttons, that pad is activated.
Nothing is currently programmed for the serial but MIDI shouldn’t be too hard to add…
We will release a tool to convert .wav into .csv so custom sounds can be added to the code.
