Hi,

after loads of searching through the forums i can't seem to find anything that fully explain how to achieve this? Ive saw loads of people doing it so i know it can be done such as this video..

And lots of other examples, but I'm not sure where to start?

I have an uno will this work?

I purchased a solenoid to get going as well as a midi shield if needed but not quite sure how to get everything going in-between?

Any help would be great! thanks!

Yea this seems to be the only one that pops up around here. There's so many questions that arise when reading through that one. Is that a DIY shield? Which arduino board is used? Etc

Yes

Any. I used a Arduino duemilanove but a Uno will do just as well.

Etc
Ask.

Yes the code is not hardware dependent on the MIDI / Arduino interface side. In fact it is hard to see how any code could be sensitive to that.

MIDI is a serial protocol and as such is handled in exactly the same way as any serial data on an Arduino.

Its just my understanding of the whole thing. Without sidetracking everything you've said etc. Do you know if the Maxuino setup would be easier for this?
