    Default Pimp My Hiduino - Compile your own version of HIDUINO to name your Arduino controller

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to share a little web tool we developed in Yaeltex, a small MIDI hardware company from Buenos Aires.

    Pimp my HIDUINO it's a simple tool. HIDUINO it's a great firmware that lets you program the communication micro-controller of your Arduino to make it speak as a real plug-and-play MIDI USB controller, no intermediates needed. One limitation we've found while making Arduino MIDI controllers was that all of them were called "Hiduino" when we plugged them into our computers. The good thing is that Hiduino it's an open-source project, and we've found our way to re-compile the firmware with different Device and Manufacturer names.

    In our mission to bring more people into Arduino MIDI controller making, we've developed an automatic web tool that makes the job much easier. Just type the Device and Manufacturer names for your controller, select your Arduino model and click on "Compile!". An .hex file will download, and that file is the one you'll need when flashing the communication micro of your Arduino.

    If you want ti flash HIDUINO you can follow this steps by it's creator, Dimitri Diakopoulos.

    could this be used to create a usb midi host device? I'm trying to work out a way to interface my usb op-1 with my midi keyboard without having to use a pc/laptop.

    Quick update:

    We are now using MOCO LUFA firmware to make Arduino UNO based MIDI controllers, mainly because this firmware has dual boot mode (you can boot in both serial USB or MIDI USB).

    As we changed the firmware, we also updated the webapp for compiling it with different device and manufacturer names:

    hope it helps, cheers!

    I dig it. I'll be diggin in to the details in a little bit. Currently been hand scripting everything (since arduinos are worlds cheaper than midi brains from companies like Livid).

    A teensy is also a very good option.

    And props for the update guys!

    I use 2 teensys for converting 2 CDJ800 to midi controllers. they work great and you can change each teensys name too.
    Congrats on this work too
