Play music in Python, control software synths on your Pi, and take control of hardware synthesizers!

Michael Horne said "The Piano HAT is, as far as electronics goes, a work of art. It looks slick, feels slick and, with the software library included, acts slick."

The MagPi said Piano HAT was "a great way to unleash your ivory-tinkling tendencies" and "a board for musical adventures".

* 13 piano keys (a full octave)
* Octave up/down buttons
* Instrument cycle button (great for use with synthesizers)
* 16 bright white LEDs (let them light automagically, or take control with Python)
* 2x Microchip CAP1188 capacitive touch driver chips
* Use it to control software or hardware synths over MIDI
* Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, and Zero
* Python library
* Comes fully assembled

Software

There's an ever-so-thorough Python library to control Piano HAT, with a bunch of nifty examples to let you explore its functionality.

There's a learn to play example that let's you play along as Piano HAT's LEDs show you which keys to press. In no time, you'll be a Chopin for the 21st century.

Included is also a MIDI example that lets you play music with Sunvox, Yoshimi and other software synths, a PyGame example with glorious piano and drum samples and even a true 8-bit synth written in pure Python!

You can even make Piano HAT output regular MIDI commands via a USB to MIDI adapter and use Piano HAT as a tiny, cheap MIDI controller for your Minimoog Model D (you have one right?)
