Local source for header pins?

Postby heuermh » Tue Mar 27, 2012 1:08 pm

I recently bought a Teensy and a Meeblip Micro kit and didn't think to also order header pins at the same time. Is there a local source for these? I tried a RadioShack today and while I was surprised that they did have some electronics supplies, they didn't have any header pins.

The Teensy header pins are 2.54 mm spaced

and it looks like the Meeblip ones are the same size.

No, sorry, won't make it tomorrow.

Axman in St. Louis Park were out but said that the St. Paul store had them. I found some $20 parts kit at Microcenter that had a few in it.

you can order them from DIGI-KEY... they are located in Northern MN so you will get them next day or the day after using standard shipment.

Thanks for the reply, Paul.

The Teensy is my first venture into arduino-or-similar hardware and is kind of fun. Then I've written a ChucK class to interact with the MeeBlip over MIDI but I haven't had any time to start putting the kit together yet.

Sure, if you consider emacs a GUI.

meeBlipMidiExample.ck:

Code: Select all

261.6256 => float c;
440.0 => float a;

Chords.majorTriad(c, "C") @=> Chord cMaj;
Chords.minorTriad(a, "A") @=> Chord aMin;

TimeSignature.common(120) @=> TimeSignature t;

MeeBlipMidi meeBlip;
meeBlip.lfoOn();
meeBlip.distortionOn();

while (true)
{
  t.half() => now;

  for (0 => int i; i < 8; i++)
  {
    meeBlip.freq(cMaj.sample());
    meeBlip.noteOn(0.8);
    t.eighth() => now;
    meeBlip.noteOff(0.0);
  }

  for (0 => int i; i < 8; i++)
  {
    meeBlip.freq(aMin.sample());
    meeBlip.noteOn(0.8);
    t.eighth() => now;
    meeBlip.noteOff(0.0);
  }
}

Then from a shell:

Code: Select all

$ chuck --loop &
$ chuck + import.ck
$ chuck + meeBlipExample.ck
