DIY-project: MIDI-controller for snapshots. Powered by Arduino

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys! 
Just finished this very cool project that i am super proud of: 

A small controller, that lets my change snapshots but still have alle the Helix-switches set up for stomp-mode. 

I have spent two weeks nearning Arduino-coding from YouTube. I have never done ANY coding whatsoever before this project. ( you guys who knows alot - please i probably wont understand what you want to say if you tell me something that's wrong with the code)

I must admit that i have been so caught up by coding that my entire stream-of-consciousness looks like The Matrix. 
I finally got it!  

Check out some pics and video here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yix1hbELmOuxUikfwnxaL8gr4gQe9VUN?usp=sharing 

(too lazy to embed)

 

The Chasis is 3D-printed - because I wanted to try that and because my library has a printer that I could use for free. Also all enclosures I could find where either to big og to small. 

It works by sending MIDI CC#69 with values of 0, 1, 2 or 3 for switching 4 snapshots. 

I cant believe how cool Arduino is! So much fun - actually I'm afraid that I have not played guitar at all for 2 weeks! 
And it is not that hard at all! I just watched at lot of video from this Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/OSHJunkies/playlists 
And then looked at some other midi-controller-projects, to get an idea of how to do it! 

Go guys!! 
Do it!

Congratulations - looks like an awesome job!  Even more awesome that learned so much in such a short period of time - that's stuff you'll have in your head forever!

Hei my man THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!

this is incredible and saved me two weeks of getting into this and I'm sooooo glad because I SUCK at programming!

So thank you a LOT!!!

I'm using it with only three switches for my HX Stomp and its incredible!

Do you know how it would be possible to modify the program to make it go up a preset if you push two of the buttons at once?

Would be soooo grateful for some advice!

 

Thanks a lot and many greetings from Germany

Benny
