Hey guys... I need some help!
I´m newbie... must learn a lot about arduino, libraries, codes, etc. BUT, before I star studing this deeper, I must know if my project is possible to work.
Well here we go... :)
This is the controller´s layout.
It´s a channel strip. My intention is to controll the plugins I use in my mixes with daw reaper.
My plan is to use:
ARDUINO MEGA 20 INCREMENTAL ENCODERS 2 PUSH BUTTONS
I´m still not sure if there is any limitation to the midi library, because all the enconders must be set to work as parameter control changes. I need something that I select the parameter I want in the plugin, set it to "learn" and moving one of those enconders it will be mapped to that parameter.
I think this controller gonna work... but now we gonna talk about my biggest concern.
I would like to have 12 of this controller working togheter. Then I could manualy controll many tracks or groups. It would help me a lot. The final result would be some kind of 12 tracks audio mixer.
It would use 12 arduinos mega, 240 enconders, 24 push buttons.
Is there any possibility for this work? I think gonna be hard to use 12 controllers conected in usb and doing serial to midi convertion. Then I thought that maybe it could work if I conect everything with midi cables, and set one controller for each midi channel. Then all the controllers would be conected to my interface midi in.
Please... give me your thoughts about this. Is it possible to work?
Thanks a lot!
