This time I’m going to present you a spin off project from EPiCK, that I’ve just created. This time it is all open source so that everyone can build one:
So what I created is a little box that forwards incomming MIDI data to its MIDI-OUT, measures the position of a plugged in pedal and add the pedal messages to the incoming MIDI stream:
The sources plus schematics can be found here: https://code.google.com/p/epick-pedal-controller
If there is interest I’m also planing to add support for EPiCKs optical pedal sensors, so that anyone can make a continuous pedal from a simple on/off pedal unit. This could also be used with EPiCKs motherboard as a pedal controller with integrated USB-MIDI interface.
