I put together an small midi-interface according to the notes in http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/MIDILibrary

The test program works, and now I wanted to use my midi keyboard to drive my Atari Punk Console

through midi. I successfully patched the APC through arduino, so I now what pins to change etc. The thing is:

It will only succeed once, then the program crashes. Also it won't work on the first try. I have to bash the keyboard till I get "lucky" and then it could be any key that would have worked.

basically I just set some analogue pins to make other sounds
Code: [Select]

void setnote5() {
 analogWrite(audioPin1, 127);
 analogWrite(audioPin2, 100);
 analogWrite(audioPin3, 255);

and then the mainloop checks for midi notes and maps the notes:

Code: [Select]

void loop() {
 if (MIDI.read()) {                  
   switch(MIDI.getType()) {            
     case NoteOn:
       switch(MIDI.getData2()) {
        case 36:
        case 37:
        case 38:
        case 39:
        case 40:
     case NoteOff:

What is wrong in this simple code? Sometimes it will really set the pins to the right voltages, but only once, and also a random note.

Thanks for any input
