Tutorial: Basics of MIDI and Arduino

You may have heard or read about the term MIDI many times over the years, and known it had something to do with controlling electronics music devices via a computer or some sort of controller. However the actual nuts and bolts of how it works may have remained a mystery. Until now! Amanda Ghassaei has published another great tutorial on how to send and receive MIDI signals via an Arduino board. Not only does she explain the required circuitry and Arduino sketches, Amanda also explains the MIDI protocol itself. Finally, various demonstrations are provided to help you get moving with MIDI for example:

 

So for more fun and information, visit the tutorial to get started. And we’re on twitter and Google+ – so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

 

When making your own MIDI-interfaces, you’ll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. In doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
