I'm trying to prepare a layout for my project using fritzing. The device will send midi messages when you press a footswitch and an LED will light up. The code is more or less working but I know from experience what a jungle of wires you can end up with - I want it to be as tidy as possible, so intend to use some veroboard to mount the resistors.
I'd appreciate any comments about this layout, is there a better/neater approach?
Your switch wiring seems wrong, Looks like all 4 will short out Vcc.
I'm guessing the black wires from the switches to ground are not supposed to be there.
For better comments on your implementation it would be better to group devices in the enclosures they will inhabit and make the interconnect cables more obvious. i.e. could draw a dotted eclipse around the groups to wire that will make up a cable.
I would solder header pins onto the Arduino, then put 2 rows of female header-pins on a exp-printplate, mount the DIN-plug (s) on that and if the resistors don't fit in the foot switches, mount them on there also, add midi-in/thru and the other DIN plug already. Are those other button supposed to be for use by your hands ?
Oh those things at the bottom are the LED's so i would mount all components on a piece of prototyping board which include some female header pins to stick the male header pins of the Arduino in and put 1 enclosure around it, which can have the DIN plugs coming out the side and a have a powersupply input on it as well, the LED's sticcking out the top, the foot switches i don't know how they look..
