Topic: MIDI Library help (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I'm having trouble using the MIDI Library.  Specifically the callback functions. 


I downloaded this library and installed it.  Im trying to start from the example MIDI_Callbacks.  In order to see if the library is working, I'm simply trying to turn the pin 13 LED on and off on my Arduino UNO.  A midi note on would turn the LED on and a note off turns it off.  The only thing I've added to the example is a digitalWrite(led, HIGH) and a digitalWrite(led, LOW).

I'm using Hairless MIDI to serial bridge.  I can see the note on and off is getting to the arduino UNO.  the RX light lights up, but nothing ever lights up the pin13 LED.

I assume I'm missing something simple.  I'm new to this.  The code is below.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

#include <MIDI.h>

int led = 13;

// This function will be automatically called when a NoteOn is received.
// It must be a void-returning function with the correct parameters,
// see documentation here:
// http://arduinomidilib.sourceforge.net/class_m_i_d_i___class.html

void HandleNoteOn(byte channel, byte pitch, byte velocity)
    // Do whatever you want when you receive a Note On.
    digitalWrite(led, HIGH);
    if (velocity == 0)
        // This acts like a NoteOff.
        digitalWrite(led, LOW);
    // Try to keep your callbacks short (no delays ect)
    // otherwise it would slow down the loop() and have a bad impact
    // on real-time performance.

// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

void setup()
   pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
    // Initiate MIDI communications, listen to all channels
    // Connect the HandleNoteOn function to the library,
    // so it is called upon reception of a NoteOn.
    MIDI.setHandleNoteOn(HandleNoteOn);  // Put only the name of the function

void loop()
    // Call MIDI.read the fastest you can for real-time performance.
    // There is no need to check if there are messages incoming
    // if they are bound to a Callback function.
    // The attached method will be called automatically
    // when the corresponding message has been received.
