Hello everybody

Just thinking about another project, what would be the "best" way to get 2 MIDI Outs using an Arduino?

Should add, these need to be separate MIDI Outs, not a thru or a duplicate.

What sort of Arduino?
Use software serial for one of the outs for a Uno. Use the extra serial outputs for a Megs or Micro.

Thanks Grumpy_Mike.  I had come to the same conclusion, but wanted someone with a bit more knowledge of Arduino to confirm.

It's probably going to be a Mega, which I am brand new to, how would the two MIDI outputs be created (software wise)please?  I can't find any examples of this.

Thanks again.

For a Mega it is easy, just use Serial1 and Serial2 for the two MIDI streams and that leaves you with the normal Serial for debugging.
