New Video: MIDI Controller with @Raspberry_Pi Pico and LED Arcade Buttons

Pedro and I put together a short video to promote our latest project collab with Liz Clark, BlitzCityDIY. The video summarizes the devices features and takes a look at using the OLED and joystick to change MIDI notes on the arcade buttons. The musical number near the end of the video was put together by me (Noe) using an iOS device and Garageband. Huge shout out to Liz Clark for her amazing work on the code, GUI and design suggestions. We could not have done this with out her.
