Armadillo was born as a experimental hack & DIY (doit yourself) touch-screen software/hardware project to control knobs and sliders over VCV Rack, and now extended to any VSTs and any DAWs. Armadillo can control anything without the need to create MIDI mappings. The instantaneous control over any parameter makes it a small great utility for live performances or studio. Armadillo is a great touch-screen complement to your MIDI hardware controllers.
Armadillo software works in conjunction with a piece of hardware named “THE BLACK BOX”, but do not worry, it’s nothing else than a simple and cheap Arduino board powered by USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. You do not need to solder or program, just buy an Arduino Leonardo R3 board valued around 7 dollars on Ebay. The programming process (flashing Arduino) is super simple, and does not require previous knowledge.
