    Default Custom MIDI Controller

    Here is my ALMOST finished Arduino Mega based midifighterish controller. It consists of 4x4 arcade button grid with the top four button lit by 2 red LEDs, 2 sliders, a crossfader (modded to move much more quickly/easily), and 2 joysticks from an xbox controller. I am still finishing up the code to dial in the thumbsticks and get MIDI feedback from the LEDs( for now they light up when the button is pressed).

    View of underside clear buttons with 2 LEDs on each side connected in series with a resistor (47K i think) and lots of hot glue

    So far its setup more as an effects trigger I guess. Havent really played around with it much yet so still working out its fit/ purpose.

    Yeah its a bit rough around the edges as the acrylic was cut by a shop (they did a crap job on the dimensions) and i glued and dremeled the rest of it together. The wiring and leds are various parts I had lying around.

    Good work! Looks nice, almost looks like production quality which is very hard to achieve.

    Thanks everybody. Hoping to post the code soon so you can pretty much cut and paste and start making controllers
