Using Playtron is pretty much like a food recipe. Something like simple fried eggs: really quick to do.
First of all you will need:
- Your Playtron with a USB cable and the alligator clips
- A laptop or desktop computer (check the other tutorials for mobile and music hardware)
- Google Chrome browser installed on your computer
- Internet connection (if you can’t have it check out the tutorial on Ableton for offline usage)
So let’s begin.
There are only three simple steps:
1st - Connect your Playtron to your computer using a USB cable.
(You don’t need to install any other software if you want to keep things simple!)
3rd - Connect the alligator clips to your Playtron and to different objects. If you are wondering which objects are the best we got you covered. Check this tutorial.
Playtron has 16 connections, which means that you can connect up to 16 different objects.
(In fact you can connect as many objects as you want as long as you are ok with some of them sharing the same sound).
