DomeDrum is an open source MIDI controller.
Our aim of making the first version of DomeDrum was building a drum controller which feels like an analog drum. Did you ever play a Djembe? It has one surface, depending on where you hit it the sound differs. We like pad-based controllers like the MPC, too but it's far away from an anlog drum. We wanted to brings that analog feeling back.
We used an additional »head« made out of silicone on top of the wooden body for a softer feel while drumming. Use whatever you think feels good here. To asseble your own DomeDrum you need to mill the wooden body, assemble the electronics and upload our Arduino software to a Teensie Board. Have a look at the shopping list to see what's needed.
