I'd like to make a MIDI drumset using arduino (hihat pedal - flip-flop with a LDR sensor (please advise me which one of above to use), bass pedal - accelerometer, drums and cymbals - piezo sensors). Drums and cymbals - piezos attached to metal plates and covered by mousepad-like "foam" from both sides.
Are the above parts ok? Which sensors are better - larger or smaller ones? also, which LDRs to use? And, what else do I need for wiring everything up so it ends with a single USB cable which is like MIDI out to PC (FL studio-addictive drums for that)?
Thanks in advance! By the way, I'm newbie in this, so please don't use complicated words and stuff :)
