First, attach the alligator clip leads as shown to the captivate pads on the Circuit Playground Express.

Next, arrange your fruit triggers in a circle around the board. Then, plug the lead pins into each piece of fruit.

To avoid capacative antenna interference, make sure none of the wires overlap or touch each other.

Plug in the battery pack and then turn it on -- you want to avoid touching any fruit triggers or wires while the Circuit Playground Express is starting up -- as this is when the capacitive sense pads are calibrated.

You're ready to make music!
