The PICList is a collection of people interested in the Microchip PIC and other similar processors who have joined the PICList@MIT.EDU mailing list. This web site is an and archive for the email list which was started, and is still maintained, by James Newton who was a former list member and admin for several years. Mr. Newton is (as of 2008/06/09 19:20) no longer an administrator for the PICList mailing list and is in no way responsible for its content.

DIY MIDI controllers using PIC microcontrollers and Basic Stamps. Introduction By combining a PIC microcontroller or Basic Stamp II with a few passive components it is not difficult to construct your own knob box, trigger box, or other MIDI input device.
A knowledge of electronics may be required for interfacing to some sensors. Both the Stamp and PIC provide an economical (under US$100) entry point into the world of alternative MIDI controllers. This page was created to provide a starting point for people interested in building their own MIDI control devices using Microchip PIC microcontrollers or Parallax Basic Stamps.

Part 1: MIDI Hardware The MIDI 1.0 Specification states: The interface operates at 31.25 (+/- 1%) Kbaud, asynchronous, with a start bit, 8 data bits (D0 to D7), and a stop bit.
This makes a total of 10 bits for a period of 320 microseconds per serial byte. Circuit: 5mA current loop type. Connectors: DIN 5 pin (180 degree) female panel mount receptacle. Within a year of its introduction in 1983 MIDI was adopted as standard by the entire electronic musical instrument industry worldwide with a very high degree of compatibility. The reason behind the overwhelming success was that the standard was very carefully researched before being revealed publicly.
There are many ways of implementing and applying MIDI depending what market or application is being targeted. Since the beginning of 1996 all equipment sold in Europe must conform to CE EMC requirements and North America already had similar FCC regulations. Note the use of a high speed opto-isolator gate and that there are now two grounds.

A new No-solder Kit has been added by request! – I solder & test, you create the body (see below). Inspired by the simplicity of the one-string “Diddley-Bow” of Delta Blues, the oneString controller is a super-simple and highly-expressive controller for laptop musicians.

RtMidi is a set of C++ classes which provides a concise and simple, cross-platform API (Application Programming Interface) for realtime MIDI input/output across Linux (ALSA & JACK), Macintosh OS X (CoreMIDI & JACK), and Windows (MultiMedia Library) operating systems. python-rtmidi is a Python binding for RtMidi implemented with Cython and provides a thin wrapper around the RtMidi C++ interface. The API is basically the same as the C++ one but with the naming scheme of classes, methods and parameters adapted to the Python PEP-8 conventions and requirements of the Python package naming structure. python-rtmidi supports Python 2 (tested with Python 2.7) and Python 3 (3.2, 3.3). Note python-rtmidi is currently in beta-stage, which means it is published in the hope that other developers try it out and help finding bugs, and that its API is not yet finalised.
Kenton Electronics MIDI controllers retrofits wireless. MIDI Programming - A Complete Study - Part 1 The Basics. Written by Stéphane Richard (Mystikshadows) What are MIDI files exactly?
We've all seen them at one point or another. These files have the .mid extension and hold data to play music, on a computer, through a sound card's Sound Synthesis electronics. If the sound card is of atleast good quality, MIDI files can play quite nicely. Not to mention that MIDI files hold the most amount of music related information in the smallest size. As we all know, FreeBASIC supports a library called FMOD which allows us to play MIDI files, however, this is not what this series is about. This first part of the series will cover some basic knowledge and concept about MIDI and MIDI files which will serve as background knowledge to build on in the other parts of the series.
