This Piano HAT is a mini musical companion for the Raspberry Pi and features a touch sensitive, 13-key full chromatic octave piano keyboard, plus octave up/down and instrument patch change keys. Using Python it is possible to play music, control software synths as well as controlling midi-enabled hardware synths.
Use the Piano HAT to play .wav samples with PyGame, or create piano-controlled contraptions. An included MIDI example enables music to be played with Sunvox, Yoshimi and others. Includes a PyGame example that includes a few octaves of piano and some drums.
