Arduino MIDI Logic Analyser

After having a few issues debugging the MIDI connection for my Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer I started wondering about the possibility of building a simple Arduino-based tool to help debug MIDI serial links. I'm thinking something like a MIDI "logic analyser".  This is the result. Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment … Continue reading Arduino MIDI Logic Analyser

Universal Synthesizer Panel – Part 6

This is the last part (for now) in a series of posts describing how I've approached building a "universal synthesizer panel" to house a range of microcontroller synthesis projects. In the first part, I detailed the general idea and overall design of the panel. In part 2 I built the IO panel. In part 3 … Continue reading Universal Synthesizer Panel – Part 6

Arduino Tone One Year On!

One year ago I posted the following two articles: Arduino Tone Generator Arduino Note Generator Shortly followed by an associated video on YouTube and so the Simple DIY Electronic Music Projects blog was born!  They were then followed by the Arduino MIDI Tone Module and many others since. So in honour of my one-year anniversary, … Continue reading Arduino Tone One Year On!

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

Arduino MIDI Step Sequencer

This adds MIDI out capability to the Arduino Tone Step Sequencer.  Here it is driving a Roland MT-32 paired with the Arduino Light Mozzi Generator – Part 2. https://youtu.be/nOx_mO8V0uY 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 … Continue reading Arduino MIDI Step Sequencer

Keyboard MIDI Matrix Decode

Following on from my Keyboard Matrix Decode I've now added MIDI out!  So I have a full sized MIDI controller keyboard for the cost of a cheap Arduino Nano clone and a couple of passive components! https://youtu.be/kqcfxiKIzi4 Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI experiments.  I am not responsible for … Continue reading Keyboard MIDI Matrix Decode
