60 Musical Instrument Maker Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell us how did you become interested in the craft of basket making?

When I joined the Community at Canon Frome, somebody invited a basketmaker in to do a course and I was immediately hooked. I had always been interested in weaving and willow weaving excited me hugely.

2 :: Suppose I Want To Design My Own Board, What Should I Do?

The reference designs for the Arduino boards are available from their specific product pages. They're licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, so you are free to use and adapt them for your own needs without asking permission or paying a fee. If you're looking to make something of interest to the community, we'd encourage you to discuss your ideas on the hardware development forum so that potential users can offer suggestions.

3 :: What is octave?

The interval between two musical notes, the upper one of which has twice the pitch of the lower one. In a major or minor scale, the distance of this interval lies eight steps* away, hence the term “octave.” (*in the major or minor scales, the eight steps are actually a combination of “whole steps” and “half-steps”)

4 :: What is solo?

For one player (musician), or to be played alone. In an orchestral work it has come to mean the important line or part for one player, while soli would be the same for a group or section of players.

5 :: What is tonic?

A pitch that is the first degree of a major or minor scale and the tonal center of a piece composed in a particular key.

6 :: Do you know which Are The Official Arduino Boards?

The official Arduino boards are the ones listed on the product page. These are boards whose manufacturers work with the Arduino team to ensure a good user experience, compatibility with the Arduino software, and a quality product. In return for their status as official boards, the manufacturers pay a licensing fee to the Arduino team to support the further development of the project.

In general, we restrict use of the name "Arduino" to the official boards. If you find a product under a different name but described as "Arduino compatible", it’s probably not an official board and doesn’t fund continued work on the project.

7 :: Tell us if you could have a ticket to anywhere…where would you go?

I think I would have to go back to India (several times). The sheer onslaught of colour/texture/sound/smell is such a wonderful sensory experience.

8 :: Tell us can we Program The Arduino Board In C?

In fact, you already are; the Arduino language is merely a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code. Your sketch undergoes minor changes (e.g. automatic generation of function prototypes) and then is passed directly to a C/C++ compiler (avr-g++). All standard C and C++ constructs supported by avr-g++ should work in Arduino.

9 :: What is adagio (Italian)?

Meaning a slow tempo or slow speed. Sometimes it is the name of a work like Mozart's Adagio for Violin and Orchestra.

10 :: What is crescendo (Italian)?

Meaning growing, as in a swelling of sound, or becoming louder.
