Instructable: Arduino Keyboard Joystick Extender Box and Sound Controller Thing Using Deej

Update Jan. 23, 2021: Looks like the Joystick circuit has failed as it no longer toggles the Mute function. Well, I wasn’t too happy with the initial wiring job so this may be an opportunity to update that.

A while ago I developed an interest in Arduino microcontrollers, and this is my first ‘actual’ project.

It’s a box that sits adjacent to the keyboard and lets me control the output volume of various applications before they reach the speakers or headphones. Also the input sensitivity of a microphone.

Most of the magic is achieved through Deej, an application that sits in your task bar and controls the Arduino inside the box.
