HELP!! MIDI CONTROLLER TEST

Hi everybody..

Its my first post.

I buy an arduino duemilonove yesterday and I want to start learning how to build a Midi controller. I want to make a very simple test project for beggining but I dont know how. :( I want to press a button and play a midi note on midi channel 10. I already build the midi out pins but i dont know how to hook a switch and the code for that.

I will be very happy if somebody can help me!!

Thanks in advance.. :)

There is already an MIDI Interface board done by Arduino (Or other manufacturer): http://www.lextronic.fr/P18769-platine-midi-shield.html with operational libraries.

You can do it yourself with an Arduino Uno only, but that's an other story... With an custom software according to your hardware configuration.
