So i am trying to get an Arduino to send midi information over usb of a pitch and modulation joystick from an Edirol pcr-30 keyboard, I am new to the world of Arduino and a super basic understanding of programming, have already played around with a few sketches and managed to make a few LEDs flicker like a fire to random values, but haven't been able to get the joystick to register any values to Ableton Live or the serial Monitor.
Does anyone have some guidance as to how I go about this?
The joystick has 4 wires, one purple and 3 grey, the 3 grey ones are the only ones that go to the joystick, the purple stops at that connector/PCB.
moving the joystick forward I want to control CC1 (modulation / mod wheel)
the joystick sits central on the x axis, left is to pitch down right to pitch up, -8142 to +8142
will I need to add a resistor to each axis to get a signal on the Arduino?
any advice appreciated, have been digging around for a few days..
