I want to control some LEDs with MIDI input from an electronic drum kit. I have the control of the LEDs figured out (other than some programming issues) working. But I'm trying to get MIDI input working. I've installed the MIDI library from the arduino playground, and I'm running the MIDI input example, with an addition of some serial debugging. Right now I am just trying to get any input to be received, and light up the status LED. For hardware, I'm using an Ardweeny, basically an ATmega328p with a programming backpack and led. I've followed this schematic: http://m.bareille.free.fr/midithrubox/midithrubox.htm Using a 6N138, and a 74HC14 schmitt trigger. I've tried bypassing the schmitt trigger, and that doesnt work either. I've got the input going into D0, tho I've also tried D1. Here is a picture of my breadboard:
I'm using a Yamaha DD-65 drumpad as a MIDI source, which according to the manual, should be outputting midi all the time. The only other midi equipment I have is my full electronic drum kit which I could move near my testing equipment if you think that might be a possible failure point. I've been trying different things for a few days now, checking and double checking the connections, I have no idea whats wrong.
