I have a project I want to complete and have some questions on whether or not this wound be possible using an Arduino.
Basically, I have a device that has a serial port on it. When I press various buttons on the device it outputs various lines and commands. I need to take those commands and convert them to Midi, Then after that, I need to plug the Arduino into a PC and have it be recognized as a Midi device.
Some background, I have attempted this on a windows machine using a program called Hairless Midi and a Virtual Midi program. Hairless Midi is a serial to Midi converter. When I select various buttons on the Serial device and have them be output to a serial terminal everything works perfectly. All the commands come across the way they should. However, when I input them into the converter, not only does it not properly translate them into Midi, it doesn't even properly read the serial commands. I think it might be a bug within that specific software, so I am hoping to make this project work work in Arduino.
Let me know what you think.
