  • Synth wars: The story of MIDI (2023)
    4 projects | | 28 Apr 2024
    That makes me wonder how often one runs across a synth that doesn't support running status. I'm working on a MIDI controller myself, and that's a thing I probably ought to enable if I want the lowest latency.

    It seems the standard MIDI libraries that Arduino uses don't enable it by default, but it's a configuration option you can turn on, along with a note not to try to use it with USB[1].

    The Arduino MIDI Library [1]. Back in 2009, I learned C++ to build it and control my guitar effects pedals with custom electronics as part of my engineering degree.

    Your project can be broken up into a number of subprojects. For keyscanning you don't need additional hardware, just the pins from the ribbon cables going to the arduino's digital pins and ground. Since the keys are just switches (two per key, the time difference between the two switches closing giving the source of velocity), you could start with some examples from the Arduino MIDI library ( To test MIDI sending you don't even need to start from the keybed just yet, and if you do, you can start with a single key. Once you've got that part figured out end to end (key press/release generates note on/off events) you can work on iterating through the matrix, CC controls etc. MIDI out can be done in different ways. With a 5 pin DIN plug you'd just need two 220 ohm resistors.
  • What frequency should a timer interrupt be to receive MIDI messages?
    2 projects | /r/arduino | 8 Oct 2022
    On an Arduino compatible platform the configuration of the baud rate at the bare metal layer is taken care of by the library when you call its begin() method. Looking at the example code included with the library it appears that there are no timer interrupts or anything like that required of you in order to use it. Another thing that jumps out is that the call to read() returns a non-zero value if anything has been received that you should use to predicate whether any further attention needs to be spent on it by your code. You may know this but it wasn't apparent from the loop() {\`() }` example that you gave above.

  • Reading MIDI stream
    1 project | /r/arduino | 13 Aug 2022
    Using a library for the midi shield you can register two functions as callbacks. One callback for NoteOn(...) messages and one for NoteOff(...) messages. But thre is much more. In the end the source of truth should always be the docs for the library itself.
