Topic: Teensy 3.0 beta 6: enabling USB MIDI (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


USB MIDI is working fine with my Teensy 2, so (noticing that it is currently disabled with the Teensy 3.0 beta 6) I thought I would have a go at enabling it, to see what breaks and what needs to be changed.

I made the following changes. In hardware/teensy/boards.txt, these three lines were commented out and I uncommented them:
Code: [Select]

In hardware/teensy/cores/usb_midi/usb_private.h I wasn't sure what to add by way of a processor define, so instead I brutally commented out the following check:
Code: [Select]

// #if defined(__AVR_ATmega32U4__) || defined(__AVR_AT90USB646__) || defined(__AVR_AT90USB1286__)

Code: [Select]
// #endif

I had sort of expected that to be it; the actual code loked pretty same, with abundant use of explicitly sized types. On starting up the IDE, MIDI is there in the menu. However, on verifying a sketch which works on Teensy 2, I get

Code: [Select]
MIDI_multicontroller_USB_T3.ino: In function 'void loop()':
MIDI_multicontroller_USB_T3:34: error: 'usbMIDI' was not declared in this scope

so presumably I need to do something else to enable it. I would appreciate guidance on what that might be.

It would also be interesting to hear of any known problems with the USB MIDI on Teensy 3.0. I assume it is disabled because of known problems, though it could of course be disabled just due to not having been well tested (in which case my experiments might help).
