Cheapest MIDI controller ever
Since I delurked, let me share my old DIY plans for cheapest (and
possibly lightest and smallest) MIDI controller ever - maybe it'll
be useful for somebuddy.
It's PC-software based and basically nothing more then bunch of
buttons (and few electronic parts) connected to PC game port.
All processing done in windows soft in a way not unlike from
well-known MidiJoy soft, but my design support up to 15 buttons
and no knobs (though only one button could be pressed at time).
This project requires basic soldering skills, about $10 for parts
and some free time.
Best application I could think of - small patch changer for Ableton
of something. Just find an old tabletop calculator, add some parts
and have an hours of fun preset changing :-)
PS Software is able to send note on, note off, cc, program change on key
