The EMMMA-K, A Unique Kind of Electronic Music Keyboard

Virtually Maker Faire 2020

May 22nd-23rd

Exhibit Making

This project is a DIY Electronic Music Keyboard that can be used with any computer software or music synthesizer that can handle USB MIDI.

It is modelled after the Kalimba which is a very popular and low cost acoustic musical instrument that is sometimes called a thumb piano. The layout of the “keys” is such that it is quite easy to play after a bit of practice and it has the potential to be a unique kind of performance instrument. Because it generates MIDI the sounds it can produce are only limited by your software or synthesizer and your imagination.

The goal of my presentation is to show how to go from initial idea to working prototype using this project as an example.

Dream it, make it!
