  1. I construct this kit yesterday. Only had a minor problem with the solenoid. Its plunger kept on falling out and I had to secure it with a 3×3 bracket. Now works well. I modified the software to move the code to a more accessible keyboard range so that it works with Puty and node-red. I developed a simple node-red program that controls the mode, keys and selects songs. This has more options for triggering musicbot. When modifying the Arduino code isolate the code and libararies from current libararies as they are not compatible. I will also modify the code so that it works with other Xylophones.

  2. what are the steps to make music robot start.
    I opened the music bot
    made connection,
    press the upgrade button,
    connect again,
    typed some keys
    enabled Auto play,
    on the Music bot the cursor moves on music letters and the LEDs light up with different color but solenoid does not move the stick and there is no movement on the belt …

    1. Hi Ali,

      Make sure you have connected the Orion board with power adapter and the Power switch on the Orion board should be pulled to ON side.
      If still doesn’t work when power button is on, make sure the wire connections related to the stepper motor, motor driver, solenoid are connected well.
      For further feedback, please kindly send an email to

  3. Hello,
    I have checked the power adapter and all the wiring but nothing is working. I can connect via V2.exe (port open), but there is no “upgrade” button, nothing like that. Is there another version of the software, I could try? I even was able to connect via mBlock (green Circle next to Orion Board) but could not invoke any movement although the power LEDs are all red.
    Do you think, we have a broken board or what else could be the problem?
    Thank you very much!

    1. Hi, Natalia,
      We are sorry to hear the trouble caused. As the problem you described, it seems like that you haven’t connected to the correct serial port so the upgrade button is invalid. We have sent you more detailed instruction to your e-mail, please kindly check it.
      Best regards,

  4. Hello

    I bought the kit, assembled it, entered it into the musicBot with the keyboard, and tried it. Fortunately, it works well.
    One problem I would like to know is how to operate using ultrasonic sensors and how to use Bluetooth keyboard to input and operate.
    Answer this question.
    Thank you.

    1. Dear Wonshik,
      Do you mean that you want to other software rather than MusicBot software to program the ultrasonic sensor? The Music Kit doesn’t come with the Bluetooth keyboard, and sorry we don’t have the instruction of using Bluetooth keyboard to input and operate the Music Kit.
      Best regards,
