This paper presents the project and implementation of an intelligent rhythmic servo mechanism, called RITMUSROB, developed for basic rhythmic sequence generation in real time. The proposed system uses Artificial Neural Network for learning and control of the movement of a drum stick that plays the rhythm. The system also includes Fuzzy Sets to determine intervals and musical figures.
