Hello everyone. If interested, please checkout S2MIDI V1, a little windows program we wrote for Arduino MIDI projects. See: TransIP - Reserved domain for download links with full source.
The program attempts to read raw MIDI data coming in on a serial port and send it to a MIDI driver. The idea was a simple light weight work around for inability to do native MIDI via the FTDI chip. With S2MIDI and something like MidiYoke we can control MIDI software from the Arduino without any extra device drivers at all.
Apologies for bugs, feedback is appreciated.
