So I've checked out Hairless MIDI, and I want to build my own MIDI relay that's more conducive to my application.
It only has to relay a MIDI clock signal (or a single MIDI note) from a PC to the BT device, at which point the AVR will trigger an LED in time with the MIDI clock signal/MIDI note.
Chain: PC MIDI>Serial>Bluetooth>AVR>LED
Which means we have two Q's here:
- Can someone point me in the direction of a way I can create a simple MIDI to serial relay with VB.NET. It only has to relay a clock signal and a single note. Is there a library I can use that isn't too complicated?
- I'm going to stick an HC-06 module directly to the PCB and hook it to an ATTINY84A. What's going to be the easiest, most accurate, lowest-latency way to convert that Serial signal into a way to blink an LED in time with that signal. I'm assuming it's going to require a super high baud to ensure there's not lag.
Just kind of want to bounce this off someone else to hear their thoughts
