Right now I am working on using an arduino as a simple MIDI controller.
I was able to get the arduino to send out MIDI note number easily to a DAW (I am using Reaper). So i figured sending out CC messages would be simple
However I am not getting any respond from the DAW when assigning MIDI data. Could it be the way it is sending?
Here's an example of what I've written:
where 176= Channel 1 Mode, 14: unsigned , 76: value
The function is as so:
void ProcessMIDIOut(byte cmdtype, byte val1, byte val2)
//bugging test purposes: to see what values the TX pin is sending out.
if (cmdtype == PITCHBEND)
Serial.write(0xE0 | (channel & 0xf)); // control change command ***Error here:: "As of Arduino 1.0 the "BYTE" keyword is no longer supported. Please use Serial.write () instead
Serial.write(val1 & 0x7f); // pb MSB 0-127
Serial.write(val2); // pb LSB 0-15 - TODO
else // All standard note and cc messages
Serial.write(cmdtype | (output_channel & 0xf)); // control change command
Serial.write(val1); // command
Serial.write(val2 & 0x7f); // val1 0-127
and yes, Serial is in the right MIDI baud.
I'm still new to the CC messages format
