In the old forum i read something (not so much) about sending midi out ,essages and receiving midi input.
I found also a gadgeteer library (needed for a midi gadgeter’s other library).
Unfortunately this library refers to old model until Panda 2, and old netduino.
The links are all dead.
It’s seems midi is the last thing a Netduino maker is interested in.
Better, it seems that no netduino user work with music.
It’s an old protocol, it’s true.
But it’s fast, and does not need no wifi connection.
Ok there is some gadgeteer (not cheap) thar regards AUDIO musical format reading,inside this ocean midi has a little marginal part.
And the gadgeteer ar very expensive.
The difference is this. Via midi we can take control (absolute control) of a professional 3d part professional synths, tha cannot be emulated by netduino nor arduino nor ghielectr. products as quality and affordability.
Most owners of these synths WORK with them, it’s their main or second job.
When i proposed my idea of making something that “mute” midi base,using
them as mask to correct the real time execution and avoid “uncorrect” note in the current chord, a lot, really a lot of people asked me for it, they hold on asking me “when do your project is previewed to be complete?”.
In reality i made the project on Arduino, using mid.h library.
I choose to port the project to net interpreter microboards because of some problem treating strings in olc C\C++, that are merely char arrays (they are, sure!)
But in net Strings it’s a class, with a lot of behavior tha truncate insert, exract, search, reverse methods etc etc.
Without these features the strings needed by my program (sketch in arduino)
fill fast the memory, and Arduino starts to bug. I use a midi shield and Arduino Mega (arduino DUE-most powerful- pins i/o working exclusively at 3.3x vs 5v needed by midishield to work properly).
Now i wonder, why so exceptional potential market is so little interesting for Netduino users and its community?
When i write “midi” in the new community search textbox, the result is ZERO.
And it’s unuseful to refer to old forum for the reasons that i listed (dead links,
libraries and few (very few) smples referring to old boards).
I don’t understand.
Is there anyone here interested in Midi?
