Step Switch Party

Re-live your Roland 808 drum machine dreams with these step switches with LEDs. They’re tactile, they’re momentary, and they’re awesome.

This guide show how you can use them as simple inputs for a CircuitPython-based project on Pico, but you can use these methods for any microcontroller board you like.

The basic examples let you make a desktop switcher, game item selector, or MIDI controller using a simple bit of code. You’ll be reading switches and toggling their LEDs for feedback in no time!”
