MT32 Clumsy MIDI Simple MIDI Filter

My MT32 Clumsy MIDI Program Changer and Filter was a little disappointing, in that it didn't seem to be able to keep up with the MIDI stream for my Lo-Fi Orchestra, so I thought I'd try for a simpler version using the 5V/16MHz Arduino Pro Mini without the extras for selecting the MT32Pi voice to use. … Continue reading MT32 Clumsy MIDI Simple MIDI Filter

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

This worksheet links together the following projects: Simple MIDI Monitor Simple MIDI Monitor - part 2 Arduino MIDI Note Monitor Arduino MIDI Channel Monitor Arduino MIDI Tone Module Arduino Multi MIDI … Continue reading WS002 – MIDI In, MIDI Monitors and Effects

Arduino Multi Mozzi String Synth – Part 2

This projects takes another look at the Arduino Multi Mozzi String Synth and takes a slightly different approach to create a simple four-note polyphonic version of the string synth. To combine the outputs I'm using my Simple Passive Audio Mixer, but that isn't necessarily required. It also relies on (and builds in capability to support) the Arduino … Continue reading Arduino Multi Mozzi String Synth – Part 2

Arduino MIDI VS1053 Synth – Part 2

I'm planning a use of the VS1053 shield but need to be able to pre-select which instruments to play and which channels to respond to.  This revisits the Arduino MIDI VS1053 Synth and adds that functionality. Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI experiments.  I am not responsible for any … Continue reading Arduino MIDI VS1053 Synth – Part 2
