The Arduino platform’s development is/was one of the most game-changing events in modern DIY electronics history. What once was the domain of engineers has now gone mainstream, giving a wide audience of ll skill levels access to the power of microcontrollers.
If you’re not familiar with Arduino, I highly suggest you take a look at their site; buy yourself one and start playing around. The main benefit is the ability to rapidly prototype ideas with a combination of simple programming and off-the-shelf electronics. Once you get your blinking light projects out of the way (I was way too impressed with this!), I think you will find the Arduino to be a great tool.
We’ve got some great tutorials in store for you, so stayed tuned! In the meantime, check out some audio-centric examples for some ideas:
