from now on you shalt be called miditron

As announced in my last post I have created a midi interface for my korg monotron using an arduino uno and an mcp4822 2 channel 12-Bit DAC.

miditron

The DAC chip is controlled via the SPI and generates the control voltage for the pitch on channel 1 and the control voltage for the filter on channel 2. I used pin 8 of my arduino to controll the gate.

I got the Idea to midify my monotron from marc nostromo┬┤s blog post - he uses a teensy 3.0 to create the midi-cv interface for the monotron. The SPI part of my code is from a blog post by Kerry D. Wong

To turn my arduino into a generic usb-midi device I used the hiduino library and the arduino midi library.

This song started out as a short loop I created on my Nintendo 3DS using the Korg DS-10. I recorded it and added some loops I created using nanoloop on my android tablet and a basedrum created on my Korg monotron. The arpegiator loop, the melody and the base sound are from my novation mininova.
