Controlling Arduino with NanoKontrol via USB?

Hello,

I'm testing the Auduino project that transforms Arduino in a Synthetizer. And I thought if instead of controlling Arduino with Pots if I could control it with a midi controller that actually just have a usb port like korg nano kontrol. Does anyone have a clue if this is possible?

Does anyone have a clue if this is possible?

Yes it is perfectly possible. You need to use the serial input as a MIDI input. I put a switch on mine so that downloading code didn't send rubbish into the MIDI system.

As for the software have a look at the code for this project is does the same sort of thing:- http://www.thebox.myzen.co.uk/Hardware/Glockenspiel.html
