Programmable Midi Foot Controller
« on: January 07, 2013, 09:01:58 AM »
Hey guys, I have to do a project for my computer interfacing class and I want to do something like a voodoo labs ground controller pro, I have experience with analog circuits but not digital, could somebody point me in the right direction, like a schematic or something? I can't seem to find one, also how would I go about writing the software? Thanks a lot guys

You can take a look at my own controller. It's built around a PIC 16F88 and programmed in ASM. If I would start right now a project like this, I would probably go more into a more advanced PIC (or a dsPIC) and programming in C. But you can get some useful ideas from my project

Thanks a lot! is there any chance you could email me the parts list as well as the coding? I think my teacher wants us to use visual basic, think I could code it using that?

All info is available in the post I linked by following a couple of clicks.

Not sure you know what you are asking though....Visualbasic for what?

Check out Pedal Sync from Molten Voltage. There are some chips that are designed specifically to reproduce exactly what you're looking to do.
