Open Source RK-007 MIDI Commander @adafruit @johnedgarpark @retrokitsdev

The fine folks at Retrokits have created a new bit of open source gear called the RK-007 MIDI Commander:

Not your average number; This one is a little device to hack into your MIDI Setup. We made it with minimal amount of ( – cheap & easy to find – ) parts and soldering and devised a smart use of the keypad for easy and versatile use. It could be a handy tool to keep in your MIDI setup – and perhaps even be a good starting point for other firmware you find even more useful: This one you can build in Q-Style!

Using the keypad and knob, you can use it to select MIDI channels, send out Program Change, Note On/Off, Start/Stop, MIDI Panic, and more.

You can find the project files here, including wiring diagram, Arduino code, and 3D printed case models.

I’m looking forward to building a modified version with an ItsyBitsy or Feather!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
