I'm using UNO and a Windows 7...
Eventually I want to make own true Midi controller, but recently I've been trying to get my computer and Arduino to at least play something.
I've been following these two tutorials on primitive Arduino Midi controllers. The tutorials explain everything except how to get actual sound! http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Midi http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Labs/MIDIOutput
I'm not looking to make a Midi-compliant USB device (for now). I don't want to construct any more hardware than what is in those tutorials (otherwise, what's the point of those tutorials?). Instead, I want a software solution. I've followed several routes without success, and I don't want to muddy people's thinking by posting links to things that didn't work. I'm thinking many of them are out of date.
Quite simply, if you've gotten the "software solution" to work, how?
