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

TFT MIDI Display – Part 3

This display is inspired by the sound and light show at the end of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.  It uses the TFT MIDI Display once again. https://youtu.be/hEpZ7Zy03Vo 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 … Continue reading TFT MIDI Display – Part 3

OLED MIDI Display – Part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post, it should be possible to connect multiple displays to the same microcontroller. This projects looks into that in a bit more detail. Spoiler - it almost works, but has software limitations!  Read on for details. Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI … Continue reading OLED MIDI Display – Part 2

TFT MIDI Display – Part 2

Building on my previous project adding a colour display to an Arduino, I thought I'd use the graphics a little by adding one of those "show the note on the stave" displays you quite often get on modern keyboards. In Part 3 I preset an alternative visualisation. https://youtu.be/p_eLd95G4zc Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or … Continue reading TFT MIDI Display – Part 2
