Hi Lena,

this is brilliant: you’re getting every possible answer to your original question.

That could be a good intro to following a circuit, soldering, working with Arduino and generally bodging things together to make a noise.

In fact I was inspired this week by your original message to add MIDI input to a module I built two years ago, and the code from that instructable sounds quite sweet.


This is a safer MIDI circuit, you don’t want to fry a borrowed keyboard:
