Google. Arduino and MIDI out. Note!

Arduino and MIDI out

We have received some concern about connecting "directly" from the Arduino to the MIDI in port of a HW synth. Although we have done this successfully with several different HW setups, note that LMP does not take any responsibility for any catastrophic results of this tutorial. In the next part of this tutorial, "Arduino and MIDI in", we will introduce the optocoupler.

In this tutorial we will learn to use the Arduino micro-controller as a tool to control musical instruments through MIDI. We will assume you have some basic understanding of what a program is, as well as functions and variables. A is a collection of statements and functions that tells the computer (the Arduino) what to do.A is a way of grouping and naming a couple of lines of code so that you can reuse them.

This tutorial also assumes you have a computer running the Arduino IDE, as well as an Arduino connected with an USB cable. 1. MIDI is a serial protocol for talking to synths. Arduino: Create your own touch sensitive MIDI-keyboard/-controller. Did you ever wish to play an instrument and interact at the same time with another instrument?

Arduino: Create your own touch sensitive MIDI-keyboard/-controller

As an example: Your audience is listening to your great guitar playing. But you want to give them more than that: With one touch on a piece of fine cutted aluminium foil you can trigger a MIDI control command and add whatever you like to your musical performance: Loops, drums, keyboards... With a little trick you even do not have to touch the foil but only have to wave your hand (or feet) above it to start the MIDI control command. Sounds good but is certainly much too expensive? Then you should read further and experience how to build this device with an Arduino.

Building the hardware You will need the following components to build the touch(less) MIDI device: Comment avoir un bon son MIDI sous Windows Vista & 7 - Microsoft - Windows & W.Phone. Il fut un temps où les jeux-vidéos utilisaient le MIDI pour jouer de la musique, malheureusement, la plus-part des cartes-son intégrées ne disposent pas de synthétiseur MIDI matériel, et le synthétiseur logiciel de Windows a un son de casserole.Voici comment y remédier.

Comment avoir un bon son MIDI sous Windows Vista & 7 - Microsoft - Windows & W.Phone

Gérer le MIDI sous Windows Vista et 7Si vous êtes sous Windows Vista ou 7, vous remarquerez qu'il n'est plus possible de gérer le MIDI via le panneau de configuration du son.Pour remédier à cela, téléchargez Putzlowitschs Vista MIDI Mapper et installez-le en copiant le fichier PLWMidiMap.cpl dans : C:\Windows\System32\ si vous êtes sous Windows Vista ou 7 32 bits.C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ si vous êtes sous Windows Vista ou 7 64 bits.Une fois la copie effectuée, vous devriez avoir une icône de ce type dans le panneau de configuration de Windows. Nous opterons pour le pilote MIDI virtuel LoopBe1, celui-ci vous permettra de remplacer celui de Windows. Cliquez sur « Appliquer » puis « OK » pour confirmer votre choix. Tech Hack: Alesis IO Dock with USB Hub.

Tech Hack: Alesis IO Dock with USB Hub

I’ve put the unit on eBay. And I’ve summarised lessons learned from this hack here. The Alesis IO Dock is a great product for iPad musicians – this small hack makes it even greater. It overcomes one limitation of the IO Dock: You can’t simply hook it to a USB hub. So I decided to build in an additional hub – which allows me to hook up additional class-compliant interfaces like my M-Audio Axiom master keyboard, and power them via the hub.

Yes, it works. The hack isn’t too sophisticated or demanding. What we’re doing: We’re smuggling the USB hub into the connection between the iPad and the IO dock. What you need: A USB hub. Not really a project for the aspiring Evil Mad Scientist – there’s hardly any rocket science involved – but especially the Dremel brought out my inner Walter White. So let’s get started! Our bill of materials. It’s possibly a good idea to check whether your IO Dock has the latest firmware, and update, if necessary. Solder a cable like this one. Scared now?
