Very cool – Franky wrote up a MIDI code library for use with Arduino. It handles the basic serial setup, interprets and filters incoming messages – also sets a pin to control the optocoupler chip (no worrying about incoming data messing with sketch uploads). Plus it handles MIDI out/thru transmissions as well – super helpful. – MIDI Library

  1. Franky says:

    Thanks for posting my library so fast, i’m impressed!

    If anyone has some comments about the code, how to improve it, even some bugs to notify, just feedback…

  2. Collin Cunningham says:

    I am taking it for a spin – haven’t run into any problems as of yet. Funny – I had just finished writing up a midi-input sketch when I discovered your library. oh well, the library is much tidier than my code. good stuff.
