MIDI Controller for various DAW and music programs. This is a MIDI Fighter styled unit and is really fun to play with. Has been tested it in Ableton Live, Reason, Garage Band, and Traktor. Works like a charm. MIDI Map it to what ever you want. It has 4 Analog and 16 Digital output.
What hardware you need to make one:
On/off switch size 12.9mmx19.4mm
16 Sanwa 24mm Arcade buttons (or clones)
4 Knobs size: 15mm x 17mm (KN-11/WS)
4 10k potentiometers
8 4-6mm M3 button head screws
Arduino Mega (mounting screws or glue gun)
Dupont wires for the arduino
Wires for the buttons and potentiometers
For the software use the MocoLufa boot loader and you are able to program the Arduino again without needing to flash the boot loader. This is what the ON/OFF switch is for. READ THE MocoLUFA instructions on the link. And as a bonus the Arduino shows up and work as a normal Native USB MIDI device without the need for a emulator such as hairless MIDI etc.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
