Looking for collaborators for MIDI guitar project

Discussion created by Gary Johnson on Feb 26, 2013

I have spent the last couple years working on a MIDI guitar project based on the JM128 and MQX.  It has turned into too much for just me to work on and I am now looking for collaborators.  If anyone is interested in working on this project with me, I can provide dedicated project boards for development.

 

The project is running but needs lots of work (the concept is patented in the US).  The input is a plastic five/ten button USB guitar controller, where each button is preset to a guitar chord, allowing a simple way to learn basic guitar playing.  The JM128 acts as a USB controller host, maps the buttons to chords and sends the appropriate MIDI data to an external guitar synthesizer.

 

Areas that need work are: bootloader for field upgrades, MIDI file player, basic code review.

 

Cheers, gj
