MC-01 MIDI Controller

The MC-01 is a device which can be used in Electronic Music Performance and Music Production. The MC-01 gives the user control of elements of a piece of Music Performance or Production Software or Synthesizer

Project Description

MIDI Controllers are devices which can be used to control Synthesizers and Music Production and Performance Software. The MC-01 features a variety of inputs which give the user control of elements of a synthesizer and music production or performance software. The MC-01 was built using an Arduino Mega Microcontroller. The Arduino Mega is a small computer can take an input, act on it using code written by the user and produce an output. The MC-01 has a number of different inputs including sliders, knobs, buttons and pressure pads. These inputs can be used to change parameters within music production and performance software and trigger music loops and samples for Music Performance.

Project Findings

The MC-01 provides a solution for Musicians and Producers by giving them greater control of the software or synthesizer being used. The MC-01's small size and ease of use cuts down on space and setup time.
