I'm trying to make a MIDI controller that has 13 input buttons from C4 to D5, including the sharps. I have all of the hardware minus the Arduino board. I haven't picked one yet because I want to make sure everything works correctly, which leads to my second thing. I have absolutely no experience with C or C++, so I can't write the little bit of code that I need to make the controller work for those 13 notes. I've looked around on the arduino website and the forums, and I have seen people saying that the code would be really easy to write, especially if there was no velocity sensitivity, which I don't need.
Anyway, I would really appreciate it if someone could post which arduino board can give a direct MIDI output, and if someone could maybe paste all the code that I would need to put on the board for it to work, since it doesn't seem like it would need much. Thanks, and again, I'd really appreciate any help with these two things.
