Arduino Drumkit - MIDI over Serial

Hi people,

I'd like to show you my ongoing build of an electronic drumkit. I've been dying to be able to play drums again, but so incredibly broke that even the cheapest of kits are not within my reach. I remembered that electronic drumkits basically use the piezo technique to get the velocity sensitive pads going, and I knew that there is software out there that can translate serial data to midi, so I got some supplies and am in the middle of the build now.

I experienced some latency with example code I found, so I rewrote the code from the ground up, and it's working pretty well at the moment.

Thanks for your time, and comments are very welcome :slight_smile:

Danny
