LARS - Looping Automated Rhythm Station

PCB Docs STLs Firmware

This is a simple drum machine / loopstation. It’s made for three hand-wound solenoids mounted to a tambourine. It is controlled by a Raspberry Pi Pico on a custom PCB.

Please take a look at the auto-generated documentation.

Also see this blog post for some more context.

Quick Start

Initialize your local repo and prepare the build:

git clone https://git.xythobuz.de/thomas/drumkit.git
cd drumkit
git submodule update --init
cd pico-sdk
git submodule update --init
cd ..
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
cd ..

Then you can build new binaries like this:

make -Cbuild -j4

For the first time, flash as usual using the mass storage bootloader (hold BOOTSEL while pluggin in the Pico). After the firmware has been flashed once you can just use the included flash.sh to avoid having to hold the button. Use debug.sh to open a serial console via USB.

Documentation

You can find the documentation here on GitHub pages.

The docs are built using mdbook, licensed as MPL-2.0. Get the latest release from GitHub for a pre-built binary if you want to test changes to the docs locally.

./pcb/generate_plot.sh
./pcb2/generate_plot.sh
./3dprint/generate_stls.sh

./docs/generate_docs.sh serve

This will open your browser to a local development instance of the docs.

Hardware Connections
