Hello. Please can someone help.
Q1: I have designed a MIDI control Surface to be used to control Logic Pro / Pro Tools / Cubase etc. And was wondering if the Arduino platform (chip and programming environment) is the most suitable platform for this. I have also heard of the MidiBox platform (chip and programming environment).
Can anyone advise as to which platform is the best for achieving my objectives. The control surface that I am designing will contain the following:
LED rings Rotary encoders motorized faders toggle push Buttons push buttons LED Bar graphs simple LED indicators motorised faders LCD displays
All controls used to give and receive data. Giving out data when a physical control is sent to the computer. and receive data when the control surface settings receive information from the sequencer.
Q2: Also, just out of interest (as I am very new to electronics) I presume that if such a device was contructed using one platform, that it would be possible to convert the project to an alternative platform if I were to replace the chip and programming.
My humble thanks to all that help.
