Arduino USB MIDI Merge

This project uses two off-the-shelf Arduino shields to provide a USB and Serial MIDI merge to a single Serial MIDI OUT. https://youtu.be/AB49UNDIrcM Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment for your experiments.  I am not responsible for any damage to expensive instruments! These are the key Arduino tutorials for the main concepts … Continue reading Arduino USB MIDI Merge

Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format – Part 2

This post is the second part of my series to document the building of a "CDR format" (CD Rack Format) panel version of my Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer. Part 1 detailed the build and testing of the panel. This part updates and enhances the Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer code to run on the panel. https://youtu.be/YmQ7j-tDudkContinue reading Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format – Part 2

Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format

When I put together the Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer it was with an eye to creating some kind of "modular" style panel format.  This post documents the building of a "CDR format" (CD Rack Format) panel version. This part details the build and testing of the panel. Part 2 will update and enhance the Multi-Mode MIDI … Continue reading Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format

MT32 Clumsy MIDI Program Changer and Filter

Having used my MT32-Pi (in fluidsynth mode) with an updated Arduino MIDI Filter in the Lo-Fi Orchestra – Jupiter from The Planets I decided to combine them with my Arduino MT-32 Program Changer try to create an add-on board for my Clumsy MIDI interface to allow a self-contained unit that: Can set the patch number (voice) for the MT-32 … Continue reading MT32 Clumsy MIDI Program Changer and Filter

Arduino MIDI Filter – Revisited

This is a minor update to my Arduino MIDI Filter to allow it initialise patches as well as filter MIDI if required. Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI experiments.  I am not responsible for any damage to expensive instruments!. These are the key Arduino tutorials for the main … Continue reading Arduino MIDI Filter – Revisited

Arduino MT-32 Program Changer

One thing that I always found slightly annoying with my MT-32 Synth Module, and something I thought would be a nice addition for my MT-32 Pi, was a two-knob voice selector.  This project uses an Arduino Nano to create one to send Program Change messages over MIDI to an MT-32. https://youtu.be/JhuPMa-xiNM Warning! I strongly recommend … Continue reading Arduino MT-32 Program Changer

Vintage Phone USB MIDI Controller

This is the USB MIDI controller version of the Vintage Phone MIDI Controller.  As the USB MIDI support is much easier in CircuitPython than MicroPython, this is also a version of the keypad controller code for CircuitPython too. Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment for your experiments.  I am not responsible for … Continue reading Vintage Phone USB MIDI Controller
