What can I do with this piano HAT?
If you’ve ever wanted to play piano on your Raspberry Pi, then this is the HAT for you. Inspired by Zachary Igielman’s PiPiano and made with his blessing, this is a great way to make music with your Raspberry Pi. By programming reactions to when you hit keys, you can activate anything from an LED display to a computer program.

How does it work?
Play your favourite tunes with the capacitive touch keys, hearing the music through your Raspberry Pi's speakers or headphones. Use your imagination and program your touch keys to create effects using LEDs or motors and servos to create a symphony of light and movement. You can even change the sound of the keys to that of other instruments. 16 LEDs can be individually programmed to light up and walk you through your favourite songs or keep pace with a metronome, giving you a multi-effect musical HAT for your Raspberry Pi.

What more can I do with this HAT?
With a little bit of your knowhow, the Pimoroni Piano HAT can output MIDI commands. With a USB to MIDI adapter, you can even take control of your synth gear. The Piano HAT comes with a MIDI example to let you play music with Sunvox, Yoshimi and others.
