Simple MIDI Wind Instrument
The idea is, to build a cheap wind instrument with a MIDI interface for the Atmega Controller. The program should be programmed in Bascom. This instrument should be simple and via a MIDI-USB interface can be plugged into a PC. Are there any interested parties, who would join? Initial trials are already there.
The author seems to have abandonned this project, but we at Elektor (and we are not alone according to the number of contributions) still think that it would be an interesting project. So if someone would like to take it over, please let us know.
By the way, my name is Kenneth Ogle. You all can call me Ken if you want.
This project is right in the direction I had decided to go as soon as I could finish getting my lab/electronics work area ready, which, for several reasons, may be a few weeks yet--but I certainly plan to contribute here as much as I am able. > Read more
I would be interested in this project too. I think the method of detection of the breath would be crucial so I am wondering whether it is proposed to develop a transducer or to use an existing breath controller? I also think it would be easier to start with a hardware MIDI output in order to avoid issues with USB MIDI drivers. Hardware MIDI is easy to do with a UART. Thi > Read more
Sounds like a nice and fun project, but some more details of what's already there would be nice.
