Midi Hero

This was a huge nerdy music project I built. I took old guitarhero controllers, opened them, removed the original controller and replace it with an arduino that reads all buttons on the controller. It can then convert the button presses into Midi notes. There are many modes and settings, each button on the neck of the guitar refers to a note. The sets of 5 notes can be modified and stored. The tremolo can be used to send a control midi-message.


We use this in our Wired Kimchi live performances. I connect the guitar to my MicroFreak synthesizer and play guitarsolos.
