StrumPad MIDI controller

Published on Aug 12, 2018 miro2424

"Hold a chord on a MIDI keyboard with one hand and strum that chord on the StrumPad. This controller is based on an Atmel Atmega328P microcontroller programmed with Arduino code. The project is open source and the files are posted on;"

First featured in 2016.

"So this device has MIDI in and MIDI out. It is based on Arduino ATMEGA328. It receives MIDI IN messages like note on and note off from a MIDI keyboard controller and loads the data to 6 touch sensors. When the player 'strums' the StrumPad, it senses which 'strings' have been struck and how much force was exerted on the Strumpad by measuring the piezo voltage that is underneath the Strumpad. It then sends MIDI OUT messages like note on and note off."
